seroprevalence of toxoplasma gondii and neospora caninum in wild and domestic ruminants sharing pastures in galicia (northwest spain).the prevalence of antibodies to the protozoan parasites toxoplasma gondii and neospora caninum were investigated by the direct agglutination test (dat) and celisa, respectively, in 160 roe deer (capreolus capreolus), 177 sheep and 178 cattle sharing pastures in galicia (northwest spain). the seroprevalence for t. gondii was 13.7% in roe deer, 57% in sheep and 7.3% in cattle. the seroprevalence for n. canimum was 6.8%, 10.1% and 24.1% in roe deer, sheep and cattle, respectively. statistically sig ...201019482324
the first report of cryptosporidium bovis, c. ryanae and giardia duodenalis sub-assemblage a-ii in roe deer (capreolus capreolus) in spain.the aim of the present study was to identify the species and/or genotypes of cryptosporidium and giardia duodenalis infecting roe deer (capreolus capreolus) in galicia (nw spain). the presence of both enteropathogens was investigated in 212 faecal samples from roe deer shot in diverse game preserves in three different areas of galicia. the samples were analyzed by immunofluorescence microscopy and pcr amplification, and fragments of the 18s ssu rrna gene of cryptosporidium and the β-giardin gene ...201323890824
tick infestation (acari: ixodidae) in roe deer (capreolus capreolus) from northwestern spain: population dynamics and risk stratification.during the 2007 and 2008 hunting seasons (april-october) the skin of 367 roe deer (capreolus capreolus l.), hunted in different preserves from galicia (northwestern spain), were examined for ticks (acari: ixodidae). the overall prevalence of infestation by ticks was 83.1%. the predominant species was ixodes ricinus (83.1%), whereas a single dermacentor marginatus specimen appeared in one roe deer. all developmental stages of i. ricinus were found parasitizing roe deer, the adults being the most ...201020963472
bronchopulmonary helminths of roe deer (capreolus capreolus) in the northwest of spain.from 1993 to 1995, 148 hunter killed roe deer (capreolus capreolus l.) from game reserves in lugo (northwestern spain) were examined for lungworm infection. the overall prevalence of infection was high (66.2%). infections were comprised to two species, varestrongylus capreoli and dictyocaulus noerneri with a prevalence of 62.0 and 18.2%, respectively. significant differences in the prevalence and larval burdens in lungs and faecal samples were observed between different locations. the highest ov ...200111502369
prevalence of cryptosporidium and giardia in roe deer (capreolus capreolus) and wild boars (sus scrofa) in galicia (nw, spain).faecal samples from 224 roe deer (capreolus capreolus) and 381 wild boars (sus scrofa) shot during the 2008-2009 hunting season (august-january) in galicia (nw spain) were examined to determine the presence and intensity of infection by cryptosporidium and giardia. analysis of a single sample from each of the roe deer revealed that the prevalence of cryptosporidiosis and giardiosis was 1.3% and 5.3% respectively. the prevalence of giardia infection was significantly higher in juvenile female roe ...201121429669
sex- and age-dependent accumulation of heavy metals (cd, pb and zn) in liver, kidney and muscle of roe deer (capreolus capreolus) from nw the present study, bioaccumulation of lead, cadmium and zinc in liver, kidney and muscle of roe deer (capreolus capreolus) from galicia (nw spain) was quantified. metal analysis was performed by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (icp-ms). in general the quantified concentrations were associated with background environmental levels, except for pb, where some markedly elevated concentrations were obtained, but with no toxicological relevance. the effect of sex on cd, pb and zn levels ...201121170773
seroprevalence of borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in roe deer (capreolus capreolus) from northwestern the present study, the seroprevalence of borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in roe deer in relation to different parameters in northwestern spain was investigated. a total of 154 roe deer hunted between april 2007 and october 2008 from different localities of galicia (northwest spain) were examined. from each animal, a blood sample and all attached ticks found were collected. all the specimens for tick stages (larva, nymph, and adult) were speciated based on reference keys. antibodies against b. ...201324063094
prevalence and identity of sarcocystis spp. in roe deer (capreolus capreolus) in spain: a morphological study.muscular samples from the oesophagus, diaphragm and heart of 101 roe deer (capreolus capreolus) hunted in galicia (northwestern spain) were examined, by the compression method, for the presence of sarcocystis spp. infection. the structure of the cyst wall was examined by light (lm) and transmission electron microscopy (tem). the overall prevalence of infection was very high (99%), with a density of 404 cysts/sample (sd 812). the prevalence was very similar in the different examined muscle types ...201324011593
