inventory of wild rodents and lagomorphs as natural hosts of fasciola hepatica on a farm located in a humid area in loire atlantique (france).with the objective of studying the role of wild fauna in the epidemiology of fasciolosis disease, a definitive wild-host inventory was carried out in a french farm where infected domestic hosts (cows) cohabit with wild potential ones. liver flukes, faecal eggs and antibodies were looked for in lagomorphs (oryctolagus cuniculus) and rodents (myocastor coypus, ondatra zybethicus, rattus norvegicus, arvicola sapidus and micromammal species) trapped in the study area. presence of fasciola hepatica w ...200010887652
