seasonal variations in the numbers of trichostrongylid nematode eggs and their larvae in the faeces of farmed goats in malaysia.faecal worm egg counts of goats from two farms in penang island, west malaysia, were monitored over a period of 14 months. the faecal egg count pattern followed that of total rainfall. the humid tropical environment was favourable for the development of various species of trichostrongylid nematodes, namely haemonchus contortus, trichostrongylus spp., oesophagostomum spp. and cooperia spp. generally, h. contortus was observed to be the predominant species, more so in the monsoon months of the yea ...19921615628
morphological characterization of haemonchus contortus in goats (capra hircus) and sheep (ovis aries) in penang, malaysia.the large stomach worm, haemonchus contortus is an important pathogen of goats (capra hircus) and sheep (ovis aries). this paper describes characteristics of surface cuticular ridges (synlophe) of h. contortus adults from the two hosts. there were more ridges in h. contortus from goats compared to that from sheep. total body length, vulvar morphology, spicule length and cervical papillae had been considered as markers of physical adaptation and were studied and described.200717568374
