first record of mastophorus muris (gmelin, 1790) (nematoda: spiruroidea) from a wild host in south america.mastophorus muris (gmelin, 1790) (nematoda: spiruroidea) is reported parasitizing the grey leaf-eared mouse graomys griseoflavus (waterhouse, 1837) (rodentia: sigmodontinae) from the province of la pampa, argentina. the distinct position of mastophorus (spirocercidae: mastophorinae) and protospirura (spiruridae), sometimes still confused, is again confirmed. the pattern of pseudolabial teeth (a large central tooth with smaller teeth on each side), which seems to be rather stable in all known des ...200314710636
[helminth fauna of rodents (arvicolidae and muridae) from the kampinos national park].the aim of the study was to examine the parasite fauna of rodents living in natural environment, but in close contact with human seats (small village at the area of the natural big forest).200617120995
why do siberian chipmunks tamias sibiricus (sciuridae) introduced in french forests acquired so few intestinal helminth species from native sympatric murids?a lack of newly acquired species partly explains why introduced host species have poor specific parasite diversity. the intestinal helminth community from two native murid host species, wood mice apodemus sylvaticus [murinae] (n=40), bank voles clethrionomys glareolus [arvicolinae] (n=42), and an introduced sciurid, the siberian chipmunk tamias sibiricus (n=42), dominant in the rodent communities, was studied from three woody areas in the ile-de-france region. native gastrointestinal helminth fa ...200919050922
heavy metal accumulation in small terrestrial rodents infected by cestodes or nematodes.the aim of the present study was to assess whether there is a difference in accumulation of heavy metal ions (cd, cr, cu, mn, ni, pb and zn) in hosts (small mammals) infected by cestode parasites when compared to those without cestode infection. the abundance of gastrointestinal parasites and bioaccumulation of heavy metals in host livers and kidneys were measured. contents of heavy metals in hosts were determined by icp oes method. the hosts with cestode infection (paranoplocephala sp.) had low ...200819202765
stomach nematodes (mastophorus muris) in rats (rattus rattus) are associated with coconut (cocos nucifera) habitat at palmyra atoll.black rats ( rattus rattus ) and their stomach nematodes (mastophorus muris) were historically introduced to islets at palmyra atoll in the central pacific line islands. to investigate patterns of parasitism, we trapped rats and quantified nematodes on 13 islets of various sizes and habitat types. most rats were parasitized (59%) with an average of 12 worms per infected rat. islet size did not greatly influence parasite population biology. nematodes also did not appear to affect rat condition (w ...201019799487
helminth communities from two urban rat populations in kuala lumpur, malaysia.the prevalence of parasitic infections among commensal animals such as black and brown rats in many tropical countries is high and in comparison with studies on rodents in temperate climates, little is known about the community structure of their parasites. rodent borne parasites pose threats to human health since people living in close proximity to rodent populations can be exposed to infection.201222397763
gastric spiruridiasis caused by mastophorus muris in a captive population of striped possums (dactylopsila trivirgata).striped possums (dactylopsila trivirgata) are small arboreal marsupials for which limited medical information is known. mastophorus muris is a gastric spirurid nematode of rodents that uses insects as intermediate hosts. three cases of gastric spiruridiasis caused by m. muris in captive striped possums are reported for the first time. diagnosis was made by the presence of adult nematodes in regurgitant and at necropsy. low numbers of nematode ova shed intermittently in possum feces made evaluati ...201122946423
biodiversity and macroparasitic distribution of the wild rat population of carey island, klang.a study to determine the diversity and distribution of ectoparasites and endoparasites infesting wild rat population of carey island was carried out from june to december 2010. a total of 81 rats were captured from various locations on carey island. four rat species were identified namely, rattus tiomanicus (45.7%), rattus rattus diardii (25.9%), rattus argentiventer (16%) and rattus norvegicus (12.3%). low diversity of ecto and endoparasites were observed infecting the rodent population with 8 ...201323959485
on the biology of spiruroidea parasites of murine rodents on el hierro (canary islands, spain) with molecular characterization of streptopharagus greenbergi wertheim, 1993.this paper reports the role of darkling beetles pimelia laevigata costipennis and hegeter amaroides (tenebrionidae) as intermediate hosts of spiruroid nematodes parasites of the black rat and house mouse of el hierro (canary islands). larvae of spiruroid species were found in the two tenebrionids (18.1% in p. l. costipennis, 7.8% in h. amaroides), streptopharagus greenbergi being predominant in both (16.1% and 7.1%, respectively), ahead of mastophorus muris and gongylonema type larva. the larval ...201324161241
zoonotic helminths of urban brown rats (rattus norvegicus) in the uk: neglected public health considerations?urban brown rats (rattus norvegicus) carry microbial human pathogens but their role as reservoir hosts for helminths of public health importance is less well known. in this study, 42 brown rats trapped on merseyside were subject to thorough combined helminthological and pathohistological post-mortem examination. eggs of the rodent-borne zoonotic nematode calodium hepaticum were initially detected in histological sections of the livers of 9.5% of rats, but overall diagnostic sensitivity increased ...201524661776
female host sex-biased parasitism with the rodent stomach nematode mastophorus muris in wild bank voles (myodes glareolus).abundance and prevalence of helminth infections often differ between host sexes, and are usually biased in favor of males. relatively few cases of female-biased parasitism have been reported. we sampled bank voles in three woodland sites in n.e. poland over 11 years at 3-4-year intervals, and assessed their parasite burdens. prevalence and abundance of the stomach nematode mastophorus muris were consistently higher among females. among adult female bank voles from the two sites that showed the h ...201525395256
long-term spatiotemporal stability and dynamic changes in helminth infracommunities of bank voles (myodes glareolus) in ne poland.parasites are considered to be an important selective force in host evolution but ecological studies of host-parasite systems are usually short-term providing only snap-shots of what may be dynamic systems. we have conducted four surveys of helminths of bank voles at three ecologically similar woodland sites in ne poland, spaced over a period of 11 years, to assess the relative importance of temporal and spatial effects on helminth infracommunities. some measures of infracommunity structure main ...201526442655
helminth parasites of small mammals in kerman province, southeastern iran.fifty-one specimens of small mammals were collected from different locations of kerman province, southeastern iran during 2007 and 2009. they constitute six species of rodents (meriones persicus, meriones libycus, tatera indica, dryomys nitedula and mus musculus), one species of erinaceomorpha (paraechinus hypomelas) and one species of hare (lepus europeus). the rate of helminthic infection was 45.1 % among all trapped specimens. in 28 out of 51 hunted specimens no intestinal helminth parasite w ...201627065607
the impact of climatic factors and host density on the long-term population dynamics of vole helminths.the seasonal and long-term population dynamics of helminths parasitizing voles suggested that density-dependent factors might be important in the population dynamics of common species, whereas density-independent factors predominate in the regulation of the rare species. to test this, we used single and multiple regression to analyse the effects of climatic factors and host density on populations of six species of vole helminths over 12 years. the data do support the idea of a difference between ...199028313000
