Studies on the helminth fauna of Alaska. V. Notes on Adak rats (Rattus norvegicus Berkenhout) with special reference to helminth parasites



Journal of Mammalogy 33(1): 38-49



During a study of the ecology and helminth fauna of Rattus norvegicus in the Aleutian Islands, 54% of 224 rats examined were found to be infected. The incidence was Hymenohpis fraterna (42.4%), cysticercus of taeniaeformis (0.4%), Trichosomoides crassicauda (5.4%), Syphacia obvelata (3.1%) and Trichinella spiralis (12%). The number of Trichinella larvae ranged from 1.0 to 1, 200 per gm. of tissue.
