investigation on the transfer of fleas among small mammals using radioactive phosphorus.the transfer of fleas megabothris turbidus, ctenophthalmus agyrtes, nosopsyllus fasciatus etc. was investigated by labelling the bank vole (clethrionomys glareolus schreb.) with radioactive phosphorus. on the one hand, the process of flea transfer was traced among different individuals of the same host species, and on the other, among different host species (c. glareolus, apodemus flavicollis melch.). the investigations revealed that the flea transfer in a rodent nest visited by another host dep ...1979396209
[species composition, host association and niche differentiation in fleas of small mammals in the ilmen-volkhov lowland].species composition, abundance, annual cycles, and host association of fleas parasitizing small mammals were investigated. the problem of niche differentiation in these insects is considered on the base of the comparative analysis of their annual cycles. the annual cycles of the fleas are revealed to be similar in the case of few number of flea species in parasite community. thus, two species parasitizing sorex araneus (doratopsylla dasycnema and palaeopsylla soricis), as well as three species a ...200617144403
[fleas community in introduced siberian chipmunks (tamias sibiricus laxmann) in forest of sénart, france].we examined the fleas community in an introduced population of siberian chipmunks, tamias sibiricus, between 2005 and 2007, in the forest of sénart (essonne, france). we collected and identified 383 fleas on 463 chipmunks (total: 1,891 captures on 471 chipmunks). in 2005, 120 fleas were also collected on 65 bank voles, clethrionomys glareolus, and on 25 wood mice, apodemus sylvaticus, trapped within the same area. ceratophyllus sciurorum sciurorum formed 73.6% of the chipmunks' flea community, w ...200818416245
[neoparasitylenchus megabothridis n. sp. (tylenchida: allantonematidae) parasite of megabothris tubidus (siphonaptera: ceratophyllidae); observations on fleas tylenchides in the s.w. of europa (author's transl)].a number of nematodes (tylenchida, allantonematidae) were observed in 11 species of siphonaptera from the south-west of europe. the fleas belong of 4 differents families (pulicidae, vermipsyllidae,hystrichopsyllidae, ceratophyllidae). neoparasitylenchus megabothridis n. sp., parasite of the flea megabothris turbidus (rothschild, 1909), is described and the life cycle given. it shows little pathogenicity to tis host. psyllotylenchus sp. parasite of nosopsyllus fasciatus (bosc, 1801), appears to b ...1978697290
identification of hepatozoon erhardovae krampitz, 1964 from bank voles (myodes glareolus) and fleas in southern order to investigate the prevalence and life cycle of apicomplexan parasites, small mammals were live-trapped with modified sherman traps in southern hungary between 2010 and 2012. altogether, 528 rodents (apodemus flavicollis melchior, 1834, apodemus agrarius pallas, 1771, myodes glareolus schreber, 1780, microtus agrestis linnaeus, 1761, mus musculus linnaeus, 1758 and micromys minutus pallas, 1771) were collected and four shrews (sorex spp.) were by-catched. captured animals belonging to n ...201627003406
[the seasonal dynamic of fleas (siphonaptera) abundance on apodemus uralensis in the northen part of novgorod region].seven fleas species were revealed on apodemus uralensis. only three of them (ctenophthalmus agyrtes, ct. uncinatus, megabothris turbidus) are the main parasites of this rodent species and have similar phenology of imago. they appear in april, parasitise during spring and summer periods and disappear in autumn, in september-october. the abundance of all three species shows two peaks in a year, which correspond to two generations. four species (amalaraeus penicilliger, ct. bisoctodentatus, peromys ...200516134781
[additional observations to the biology of hepatozoon erhardovae krampitz 1964 in bank voles from the south-western styria and from areas around the neusiedlersee (burgenland) (author's transl)].the incidence of hepatozoon erhardovae in the blood of bank voles (clethrionomys glareolus) captured in the investigated areas is examined. the biology of schizonts, their distribution in the lobes of the lung and the further development of natural infections in vertebrate hosts kept strictly free of ectoparasites are observed. the accumulation of gametocytes in larvae of the tick ixodes ricinus and of the mite neotrombicula zachvatkini after sucking on strongly infected bank voles is pointed ou ...1977413270
[the ability of flea species on the common vole from mountainous dagestan to transmit and preserve the causative agent of plague].the infection ability and terms of preservation of plague microbe in fleas of common vole from dagestan high-mountain plague focus (frontopsylla causasica, megabothris turbidus, ctenophthalmus intermedius and amphipsylla rossica) was studied experimentally. block formation and transmission of the infection by f. caucasica and m. turbidus was observed. the transmission of plague microbe by ct. intermedius fleas was first carried out. these species of fleas preserve the infection for a long time. ...19902195439
[fleas (siphonaptera) of mammals from the mountain area between the kuban and great laba rivers].the flea fauna of mammals in the area between the kuban and great laba rivers contributes 47 species. the majority of mammal fleas parasitize on several hosts. peculiarities of the species composition and the structure of flea communities dwelling in different altitudinal belts is estimated. the flea ctenophthalmus wagneri and some other flea species possessing ancient mediterranean range show the highest dominance indices in foothills. ctenophthalmus proximus and leptopsylla taschenbergi, posse ...201525929110
[species composition, abundance, and annual cycles of fleas (siphonaptera) on bank voles (clethrionomys glareolus) in the western part of vologda province (babaevo district)].a total of 383 fleas of 11 species were collected from 428 bank voles (clethrionomys glareolus) near babaevo vill. (59 degrees 4', n, 35 degrees 8' e). three species (amphipsylla rossica, doratopsylla dasycnema, palaeopsylla soricis) are not typical for these rodent hosts, moving onto the latter occasionally from other animals, such as the common vole microtus arvalis and shrews inhabiting adjacent or similar biotopes. peromyscopsylla bidentata, infesting the bank vole in the most part of its ra ...201425464742
[the seasonal dynamics of fleas (siphonaptera) on bank voles (clethrionomys glareolus) in the north part of novgorod region].the twelve flea species were revealed on bank voles. only four of them (amalaraeus penicillige, ctenophthalmus uncinatus, megabothris turbidus, peromescopsylla bidentata) were abundant in some seasons of the year. four other species (ct. agyrtes, hystrichopsylla talpae, p. silvatica, rhadinopsylla integella) are the parasites of bank vole too but their numbers were always low in the study area. the four last species (amphypsylla rossica, m. walkeri, doratopsylla dasycnema, palaeopsylla soricis) ...201012916396
fleas (siphonaptera) in the nests of dormice (gliridae: rodentia) in lithuania.negative effects of flea (siphonaptera) parasitism on the host may be expressed in different ways. the aim of this study was to assess distribution of the flea fauna in nests of dormice in lithuania. nests of glis glis (l.), dryomys nitedula (pallas), and muscardinus avellanarius (l.) were collected from nest boxes in 2012 and 2013. fleas were collected from nests in the laboratory and put into plastic tubes with 70% ethanol. flea species were identified using morphological keys. from 400 nest b ...201526334823
