A total of 217 camels kept in two different herds including Pakistan Rangers Force at desert conditions of district Bahawalpur, Pakistan were examined and screened for presence of Trypanosoma flagellate protozoan
parasites between July and September 2014.
In general, this analysis evidenced that the water temperature, electric conductivity and nutrients concentrations were the most important abiotic variables to determine the spatial and temporal variations of attributes from flagellate protozoan community.
The flagellate protozoan community from the studied streams presented a much rich species composition, with the occurrence of 8 Orders and 1 residual group.
Pearson correlations performed between the attributes from flagellate protozoan community and the scores of principal component analysis undertaken to summarize the abiotic variables from studied streams, during the summer and winter.
In Brazil, VL affects both humans and animals and is caused by Leishmania chagasi, a flagellate protozoan
transmitted by the sand fly Lutzomyia longipalpis (2).
Trichomonas vaginalis (TV) is a flagellate protozoan
considered being sexually transmissible, related to low socioeconomic conditions.
Most wood decomposition in the digestive tract of subterranean termite workers (family Rhinotermitidae) occurs in food vacuoles of flagellate protozoan
symbionts in the hindgut (Radek, 1999).
Genotypic kDNA and nuclear DNA (nDNA) markers were used to genetically characterize these wild flagellate protozoan
