Helminth communities in avocets: importance of the compound community



Helminth communities in avocets: importance of the compound community



Journal of Parasitology 752: 225-238



Patterns of similarity and overlap in species presence and patterns of linear distribution of intestinal helminths are reported in 22 avocets (Recurvirostra americana) from 4 populations. Avocets collected from ephemeral bodies of water in Alberta and Manitoba, Canada, had communities composed largely of species that are avocet specialists plus some that are host generalists.
