Abstract

Fecal flotation is routinely used to identify feline helminth infections in clinical practice, but it is known to have limitations of sensitivity, particularly for cestodes. To determine the prevalence of helminths in a contemporary population of cats and evaluate the ability of fecal flotation to...

Abstract

Many island ecosystems are exposed to ecological threats through invasive species and the parasites they harbour. Parasites can impact endemic island populations whether they are stable populations or ones already in decline. The 'Island Syndrome' hypothesis proposes that richness and diversity of...
