[isolation of thermotolerant species of campylobacter from 2 populations of chickens bred in confinement and at liberty].the isolation rates of thermotolerant campylobacter species in free-ranging domestic chickens and confined chickens from iquitos city, peru, were determined. campylobacter spp. were isolated in 54.0% of the former group of chickens, being less frequent (35.0%) in the latter (p < 0.05). of the classical thermotolerant species, c. jejuni and c. coli were the most frequent. however, the presence c. lari suggests that the chickens might be an important reservoir of this bacterium.19958731279
