Intestinal helminths of red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) in north-west Italy

increase in the distribution and density of the red fox over the last two decades ( Romig et al ., 1999 ; Eckert et al ., 2000; Vervaeke et al ., 2005 ; Veronesi et al ., 2014 ) Different habitats and diet composition strongly influence the helminth fauna of this wild carnivore ( Barbosa et al ., 2005 ; Eira et al ., 2006 ; Hegglin et al ., 2007) . The red fox is the definitive host of a wide variety of intestinal helminths of both veterinary and public health concern. The zoonotic species include Echinococcusmultilocularis , the etiological agent of

Helminths of Milvago chimango temucoensis (Aves: Falconiformes) from Los Ríos Region, Chile: New Records for Neotropical Raptors

Introduction Wild avifauna parasitism is ubiquitous, and the affected individuals suffer of multiple parasitic infections during their lives. However the study of the parasites that affect wildlife is generally scarce. One important fact is that the parasites presence always involves some sort of cost to the host ( Wobeser, 2008 ). Most of the endoparasites of the birds of prey have complex life cycles, with one or more intermediate hosts. The majority of the helminths use the bird’s food as a pathway to infect them ( Krone & Cooper, 2002 ). When the
