Patterns of trematode and nematode lungworm infections in northern leopard frogs and wood frogs from Ontario, Canada



Patterns of trematode and nematode lungworm infections in northern leopard frogs and wood frogs from Ontario, Canada



Journal of Helminthology 83(4): 339-343



In this study we examined trematode and nematode lung helminths commonly found in two species of host ranid frogs for competitive interactions. We examined 147 adult (breeding and non-breeding) and juvenile northern leopard frogs, and 84 breeding male wood frogs in Bishops Mills, Ontario for Haematoloechus spp. (Trematoda) and Rhabdias sp. (Nematoda) infections.
