Epidemiology of an intestinal parasite (Spirometra spp.) in two populations of African lions (Panthera leo)



Epidemiology of an intestinal parasite (Spirometra spp.) in two populations of African lions (Panthera leo)



Parasitology 118: 407-415



Spirometra spp. infections were studied in 2 populations of lions in the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. The 2 lion populations lived in different habitats and were known to differ genetically: lions in the Serengeti were outbred, whereas lions in the Ngorongoro Crater were inbred. Faecal samples were collected from 112 individually known lions between March 1991 and November 1992.
