population biology of eimeria (protozoa: apicomplexa) in apodemus sylvaticus: a capture/recapture study.the first long-term (27 month) survey of single species of eimeria occurring in a population of apodemus sylvaticus in the uk showed that eimeria apionodes, e. hungaryensis and e. uptoni occurred throughout the period whilst e. sp. e. was only found during 4 months. in first-captured animals, overall prevalence of eimeria spp. was 73%: a figure higher than previously published, but possibly an underestimate. multiple infections (2 or 3 species) occurred in 34% of first-capture infected animals, ...200010811276
transfer of eimeria apionodes from wood mice (apodemus sylvaticus) to laboratory mice (mus musculus).transfer of eimeria apionodes from wood mice directly into untreated laboratory mice was unsuccessful but transfer into corticosteroid-treated animals produced an oocyst output, about 1000 times less than that observed from wood mice after a similar inoculum. repeated passage through corticosteroid-treated laboratory mice resulted in a line adapted to survival in untreated animals. this line was compared with the parent strain maintained in wood mice and some features of the oocyst output patter ...19911745545
effects of acute and chronic restraint on the adrenal gland weight and serum corticosterone concentration of mice and their faecal output of oocysts after infection with eimeria apionodes.experiments were designed to investigate the potential stress of procedures commonly used for restraining mice and to discover whether habituation of the adrenocortical response occurred when chronic restraint was used. the study also examined the effect of chronic restraint on the faecal output of oocysts by mice trickle infected with eimeria apionodes. the results showed that restraining mice for one hour was stressful and that restraining them repeatedly for one hour daily for seven or 21 day ...19958525092
