Inventaire preliminaire des helminthes gastro-intestinaux du mouflon de Corse (Ovis ammon musimon) de l'ile Haute, archipel de Kerguelen



Gibier Faune Sauvage. Decembre; 114: 327-338



We identified six species of direct cycle, gastrointestinal, nematodes in the digestive tracts of five Corsican mouflons, Ovis ammon musimon. The animals were shot on an islet of the subarctic Kerguelen Islands in March 1994, and submitted to autopsy. The following nematode species were recorded: Capillaria bovis, Teladorsagia circumcincta, T. trifurcata, Nematodirus filicollis, N. spathiger and Trichuris ovis. The small number of gastrointestinal species found in the mouflons is due to the fact that only a very small number of hosts (the offspring of a single pair of founders) was examined, but also to the subantarctic climate and the absence of native terrestrial mammals in the archipelago. The unusual occurrence of three of these helminth species in the mouflons' digestive tracts might be explained by a transmission of parasites by reindeer, Rangifer tarandus, at the time (1957-1980) when these introduced ungulate species were living together on the island.
