interrelationships of parasites of white-winged doves and mourning doves in florida.the parasites of indigenous populations of mourning doves (zenaida macroura) in north and south florida were compared with those of an introduced population of white-winged doves (z. asiatica) in south florida. thirty-two species of parasites including 5 protozoans, 7 nematodes, 2 trematodes, 2 cestodes, 7 acarines, 7 mallophagans, and 2 dipterans were found. of these, 16 common to both species of doves. mourning doves from north florida showed a more diverse parasite fauna than did the white-wi ...19817338976
trichomoniasis as a factor in mourning dove population decline in fillmore, utah.we examined whether trichomoniasis had been a factor in a dramatic mourning dove (zenaida macroura) population decline in fillmore, utah (usa). we reasoned that if we could not find a high proportion of doves showing clinical signs of disease then the population was not being affected. prevalences of trichomonas gallinae in doves were 21% for 1992 and 14% for 1993. we also examined 230 birds and found only one with oral lesions. these prevalences were similar to those observed at the same study ...19957563432

monitoring presence and annual variation of trichomoniasis in mourning doves.information about the annual variation of trichomoniasis in mourning doves (zenaida macroura) may be important in understanding mechanisms affecting mourning dove populations. the objectives of this study were to monitor the presence and annual variation of trichomonas gallinae for 6 yr in a local mourning dove population using hunter-killed doves. during 1998-2003, 4052 hunter-killed doves were sampled for the presence of t. gallinae; 226 (5.6%) tested positive (4.4%-10.6% range). results of th ...200516252493
challenge infection as a means of determining the rate of disease resistant trichomonas gallinae-free birds in a population.trichomonas gallinae-free pigeons and mourning doves were infected with the jones' barn strain of t. gallinae to determine the rate of disease resistant t. gallinae-free birds in each population. although all birds became infected 88% of the pigeons were resistant to trichomoniasis while 82% of the mourning doves were resistant. it was concluded that these birds had been previously infected and spontaneously lost their trichomonad fauna while retaining their resistance to fatal infection.197016509124

experimental transfer of trichomonas gallinae (rivolta, 1878) from white-winged doves to mourning doves.isolates of trichomonas gallinae (rivolta, 1878) from white-winged doves, zenaida asiatica (l.), were transferred experimentally to young mourning doves, zenaida macroura (l.). twenty-three of 25 mourning doves developed infections with isolates of t. gallinae from 25 white-winged doves. in addition, eight of eight rock doves (columba livia gmelin) were infected with duplicate isolates. all infected recipient birds harbored avirulent isolates except for one mourning dove which died from extensiv ...19854032621
