the potential role of oral ph in the persistence of trichomonas gallinae in cooper's hawks (accipiter cooperii).trichomoniasis, caused by the protozoan trichomonas gallinae, affects a variety of species worldwide including avivorious raptors. existing information suggests that the disease is most prevalent in young birds, and differential susceptibility to trichomoniasis among individuals in different age groups was documented in cooper's hawks (accipiter cooperii) nesting in tucson, arizona. in that population, 85% of nestling cooper's hawks had t. gallinae in their oral cavity, compared to only 1% of br ...201424171574
persistence of two isolates of trichomonas gallinae in simulated bird baths with and without organic material.trichomonas gallinae, a well-documented protozoan parasite of avian hosts, has been implicated in major passerine mortality events recently and historically throughout the literature. it has been suggested that bird baths and artificial water sources could serve as a source of infection for naive birds; however, trichomonad persistence in water is not well understood. we measured the persistence of t. gallinae isolates from two avian hosts in distilled water and distilled water with the addition ...201526629619
trichomoniasis in cooper's hawks from arizona.members of the family columbidae are hosts for the sarcomastigophoran, trichomonas gallinae, the causative agent of trichomoniasis. birds of prey are susceptible to the disease when they ingest infected prey. doves are a major dietary component of urban nesting cooper's hawks (accipiter cooperii) in tucson, arizona (usa). during the breeding seasons of 1995 and 1996, we clinically evaluated 89 breeding age and 223 nestling cooper's hawks from urban and exurban (i.e., undeveloped natural area) ar ...19989706569
