molecular evidence of shared hookworm ancylostoma tubaeforme haplotypes between the critically endangered iberian lynx and sympatric domestic cats.hookworms of the genus ancylostoma are the most pathogenic parasites of young cats, and a. tubaeforme may cause morbidity or mortality in young individuals of the most endangered felid species in the world, the iberian lynx (lynx pardinus). since the transmission of monoxenous parasites is related to host density and remaining lynx populations are currently very small, the presence of reservoir hosts may be necessary for the maintenance of the hookworm life-cycle, the domestic cat being the most ...201122136770
