Grouse, parasites and priorities for management

Annual Review 1985 of the Game Conservancy: 121-128

Grouse, parasites and priorities for management

The effect of Trichostrongylus tenuis infection on grouse bags on English moors was studied. One group was treated with an anthelmintic whereas a control group was handled in the same way but was not treated. All the handled birds were tagged. Grouse classified as being in poor condition carried higher worm burdens than grouse in good or average condition. Treated grouse were more likely to survive from late winter to the following shooting season.
