    J Helminthol 75:367-72. 2001
    ..This implies that T. tenuis and H. contortus L3 exhibit selective migration towards heather, perhaps reflecting a general response to plant cues which may be stronger for heather than for grass...

    H J W Sturrock
    Department of Zoology, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand
    N Z Vet J 55:158-60. 2007
    ..To investigate the cause of a high seroprevalence of antibodies to Plasmodium spp known to cause avian malaria, but extremely low levels of observed infection, in yellow-eyed penguins, Megadyptes antipodes...

    Landcare Research, 764 Cumberland Street, Dunedin, Private Bag 1930, New Zealand
    J Anim Ecol 79:445-52. 2010
