Effects of temperature and infection with Eimeria ochrogasteri on digestive organs of the prairie vole, Microtus ochrogaster


Journal of Parasitology 75(4): 601-605
Effects of temperature and infection with Eimeria ochrogasteri on digestive organs of the prairie vole, Microtus ochrogaster
M. ochrogaster were infected with E. ochrogasteri and exposed to 2 environmental temperatures, 5 and 22 degrees C. Dry weights of the small and large intestines increased by 33% and 19%, respectively, in infected animals. Infected animals also exhibited a 14% decrease in caecal length compared to uninfected animals. The interaction between temperature and infection affected the length of the small intestine.
