biological control of nematode parasites of livestock in fiji: screening of fresh dung of small ruminants for the presence of nematophagous fungi.approximately 2500 faecal samples were collected per rectum from sheep and goats from 26 farms located on four of the fijian islands where most of the small ruminants in this country are raised. the purpose was to screen these samples to isolate nematode-trapping fungi that had been acquired by these animals during the course of their feeding and which had remained viable following passage through their gastrointestinal tract. from these samples, 23 examples of nematophagous fungi were noted in ...19999950327

global survey of serological evidence of caprine arthritis-encephalitis virus infection.using caprine arthritis-encephalitis virus antigen in the agar gel immunodiffusion test, 3729 serum samples from goats in over 112 locations around the world were tested for precipitating antibodies. over 90 per cent of the 1265 positive samples came from canada, france, norway, switzerland and the usa, all of which had 65 per cent reactors or greater. fiji, great britain, kenya, mexico, new zealand and peru had fewer than 10 per cent positive samples; the majority of these could be traced to im ...19846097015
development and survival of infective larvae of haemonchus contortus and trichostrongylus colubriformis on pasture in a tropical environment.a trial to determine the seasonal pattern of egg hatching and larval survival on pasture was carried out in representative wet and dry zones of fiji. fourteen plots were established on parasite-free pasture at each of two sites. one plot at each site was contaminated every month with faeces from naturally infected goats containing a known proportion of haemonchus contortus and trichostrongylus colubriformis eggs. pasture was sampled at regular intervals after contamination and infective larvae i ...19902332275
