Quantitative and qualitative aspects of the parasite burdens of rock dassies (Procavia capensis Pallas, 1766) in the Mountain Zebra National Park

, : Quantitative and qualitative aspects of the parasite burdens of rock dassies (Procavia capensis Pallas, 1766) in the Mountain Zebra National Park. South African Journal of Zoology, 222: 101-106

Seasonal variation in the densities of parasites of dassies and variation in these densities between sexes were determined. Female dassies showed significant seasonal differences in tick and biting lice densities. In comparison with males, female dassies had significantly higher densities of biting lice during the summer. With the exception of biting lice, juveniles had significantly higher ectoparasite densities than adults when compared on a monthly basis. No significant seasonal differences in endoparasite densities for the different sexes were evident. In comparison with the endoparasite densities of adults and sub-adults, juveniles had significantly higher densities of Crossophorus collaris and Nouvelnema cyclophoron. Seasonal variation in parasitic densities between the sexes is interpreted in terms of the physiological condition and social organization of dassies.

Currently, statins are the only drugs acting on the mammalian isoprenoid pathway. The mammalian genes in this pathway are not easily amenable to genetic manipulation. Thus, it is difficult to study the effects of the inhibition of various enzymes...
