Nestedness in assemblages of metazoan ecto- and endoparasites
of marine fish.
Auchenipterus nuchalis showed a parasite community with dominance of ectoparasites (protozoans and monogenoideans) and low presence of endoparasites
with heteroxenous life cycle, indicating that this fish might occupy an intermediate trophic level in the food web.
adversely affect the health status of animals  and have been noted as a major constraint to productivity of animals on a clinical and subclinical level .
The artificial insemination, use of salt blocks in manger, vaccination and drenching against endoparasite
were perceived the top most information received by the farmers regarding health management practices.
The results show, for the first time, that female mice can distinguish the odors of non-infected male mice from those of males infected with Trypanosoma cruzi, a tropical endoparasite
Infracommunities of Hemisorubim platyrhynchos (Valenciennes, 1840) (Pisces: Pimelodidae) of the Baia river, upper Parana river floodplain, Brazil: specific composition and ecological aspects.
(ehn-do-pahr-ah-sits) are parasites that live in the body of the host during their infective stage.
In the lek-breeding sage grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus), Gibson (1990) reported that no measure of mating success was significantly related to a decrease in endoparasite
load (Haemoproteus spp.
66%) were infected by at least one endoparasite
The intestine tract was removed and examined for endoparasites
using a stereomicroscope.
We collected 42 maned wolf fecal samples from which we identified six endoparasite
taxa (see Figure 2).
Some other factors such as geographical location, status of animal ownership, sampling protocols, demographic factors, anthelmintic usage, and diagnostic techniques are responsible for the wide range of endoparasite
prevalence found (16).
