Seasonal dynamics of Pneumocystis carinii in the field vole, Microtus agrestis, and in the common shrew, Sorex araneus, in Finland



Seasonal dynamics of Pneumocystis carinii in the field vole, Microtus agrestis, and in the common shrew, Sorex araneus, in Finland



Parasitology 118: 1-5



Seasonal dynamics of P. carinii in the field vole and in the common shrew were investigated in southern and central Finland by microscopic examination of methenamine silver-stained tissue sections. In both host species at both localities the number of P. carinii cyst forms was highest in late autumn (November). In S. araneus, prevalence was higher than in M. agrestis during all seasons.
