The prevalence of cecal threadworms trichostrongylus tenuis in red grouse lagopus lagopus scoticus


Oecologia (Berlin) 58(2): 265-268
The prevalence of cecal threadworms trichostrongylus tenuis in red grouse lagopus lagopus scoticus
Of wild red grouse examined, 90% carried threadworms in their intenstinal caeca. Old birds had 30 times as many worms as young birds. Some infections were as high as 30,000 worms. The occurrence of worms in old grouse conformed to the negative binomial distribution.
