phylogenetic comparison of rabies viruses from disease outbreaks on the svalbard islands.periodic wildlife rabies epizootics occur in arctic regions. the original sources of these outbreaks are rarely identified. in 1980, a wildlife epizootic of rabies occurred on the previously rabies-free svalbard islands, norway. after this outbreak of rabies in the arctic fox population (alopex lagopus), only single cases have been reported from the islands over the following two decades. phylogenetic characterization of four viruses isolated from infected arctic foxes from svalbard from three d ...200717767407
intestinal parasites of the arctic fox in relation to the abundance and distribution of intermediate hosts.the intestinal parasite community of arctic foxes (vulpes lagopus) on the svalbard archipelago in the high arctic was investigated in relation to the abundance and distribution of intermediate hosts. five species of cestodes (echinococcus multilocularis, taenia crassiceps, taenia polyacantha, taenia krabbei and diphyllobothrium sp.), ascaridoid nematodes and one unidentified acanthocephalan species were found. the cestodes e. multilocularis, t. crassiceps and t. polyacantha all showed a decreasi ...201019723357
spatial distribution of echinococcus multilocularis, svalbard, norway.in svalbard, norway, the only intermediate host for echinococcus multilocularis, the sibling vole, has restricted spatial distribution. a survey of feces from the main host, the arctic fox, showed that only the area occupied by the intermediate host is associated with increased risk for human infection.200818258082
