parelaphostrongylus tenuis in new brunswick: the parasite in white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus) and moose (alces alces).research was initiated in 1983 to investigate the ecology of parelaphostrongylus tenuis in new brunswick. the objectives were to determine the prevalence and intensity of infection in white-tailed deer, and to determine whether or not moose feces contained first stage larvae, signifying the completion of the life cycle of p. tenuis in this host. forty-nine percent of deer pellet samples were positive and 60% of deer heads contained adults of p. tenuis. none of the moose pellet samples contained ...19873682097
antibodies to the california group of arboviruses in animal populations of new brunswick.wild and domestic animals of new brunswick were tested serologically for antibodies to the california group (cal) of arboviruses. deer (odocoileus virginianus) blood collected during 1976 showed 6 of 129 (4.7%) sera with neutralizing antibodies to the snowshoe hare strain (ssh) of cal. neutralization tests on moose (alces alces americana clinton) sera collected during 1979 indicated 94 of 127 (74%) with antibodies to ssh, 4 of 127 (3.2%) with antibodies to the jamestown canyon strain (jc) of cal ...19827066765
population genetic structure and the effect of founder events on the genetic variability of moose, alces alces, in canada.moose, alces alces, occur naturally throughout most of canada but successful introductions of known numbers of animals have been made to the islands of newfoundland and cape breton. five microsatellite loci were used to investigate the population genetic structure and any change in genetic variability due to founder events of moose in canada. comparisons of allele frequencies for moose from 11 regions of the country suggested that there are at least seven genetically distinct populations (p < 0. ...199910447871
