a survey of echinococcus species in wild carnivores and livestock in east africa.we examined 71 faecal samples of carnivores from queen elizabeth national park (qenp), uganda, for eggs of echinococcus species. thirty-nine faecal samples contained taeniid eggs. for species diagnosis, dna was isolated from a total of 1984 individual taeniid eggs. to differentiate eggs of echinococcus felidis from other taeniid taxa (including the closely related echinococcus granulosus sensu stricto), a restriction fragment length polymorphism (rflp)-pcr of the mitochondrial nad1 gene was deve ...200919275902
a sylvatic lifecycle of echinococcus equinus in the etosha national park, namibia.various species of echinococcus have been described in the past from wild mammals of sub-saharan africa. however, it is only recently, that a few isolates have become available for molecular identification; therefore, the involvement of wildlife in the lifecycles of the various cryptic species within echinococcus granulosus sensu lato is still only partially known. a preliminary survey was undertaken in etosha national park, namibia, from august to october 2012. faecal samples were obtained from ...201525830103
characterization of taenia madoquae and taenia regis from carnivores in kenya using genetic markers in nuclear and mitochondrial dna, and their relationships with other selected taeniids.in the present study, we have extended earlier taxonomic, biochemical and experimental investigations to characterize two species of taenia from carnivores in kenya by use of the sequences of a variable domain (d1) of nuclear ribosomal dna and the cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 and nadh dehydrogenase 1 genes of mitochondrial dna. emphasis was placed on the characterization of taenia madoquae from the silver-backed jackal (canis mesomelas) and taenia regis from the lion (panthera leo), given the ...200717600673
contribution to the knowledge of helminthofauna of wild mammals of somalia.within a survey of parasitic infections in wild mammals of somalia, during the first semester of 1983 and the second of 1984, endoparasites were collected from 11 host species: gazella soemmeringi, gazella spekei, madoqua saltiana, phacochoerus aethiopicus, xerus rutilus, lepus sp., genetta genetta, herpestes (galerella) sanguineus, felis sylvestris libyca, felis caracal, canis mesomelas. a total of 22 species of helminths (20 nematode and 2 metacestode species) were identified. lepus sp. is a n ...19969257339
