This research was accomplished starting from an adapted secondary database of CUNHA (2013) and structured with information on the presence and absence of ectoparasites
, characteristics from the chicken houses, the poultry, the facilities, the geographical location and the management.
such as mites and ticks, which could not be removed by brushing, were gently dislodged with a pair of thumb forceps and their sites noted .
Argus persicus is an important ectoparasite
of domestic and wild birds in the world; and play an important role in transmission of spirochaetal diseases in poultry (Buriro, 1979).
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.
The timing and prevalence of sunbathing by burrowing owls suggests they may have done so to shed ectoparasites
rather than to thermoregulate or dry wet feathers based on three lines of evidence.
Les cyamidae etaient presents sur 20 % des 673 baleines qui ont ete examinees dans le but d'y trouver des ectoparasites
Distributional evidence for cospeciation between neotropical bats and their bat fly ectoparasites
Identification of all bacterial isolates from fish and ectoparasites
was performed by studying the phenotypic and biochemical characteristics using both conventional and commercial API 20 E systems following the criteria described in Buller (2004).
Bats also represent a key group for understanding the evolution and ecology of parasitism, because their ectoparasites
are often specialized, with many taxa closely associated with particular species of ectoparasites
(Dick and Patterson, 2006).
Therefore, crustacean ectoparasites
seem to have strong interaction with the environment and host fish population, because these factors are directly involved in their different life cycles and may cause different responses to seasonal fluctuations in water levels.
such as fleas and ticks can bite humans, resulting in itchy lesions that are prone to secondary bacterial infection.
The lesions were not generalized and no animals were infested with ectoparasites
