  1. ncbi request reprint Regulation of nematode fecundity in the ring-necked pheasant (Phasianus colchicus): not just density dependence
    D M Tompkins
    Institute of Biological Sciences, University of Stirling, UK
    Parasitology 118:417-23. 1999
    ..This is the first study to document both density dependence and inverse density dependence in parasite fecundity in the same host-helminth system...
  2. ncbi request reprint Differential impact of a shared nematode parasite on two gamebird hosts: implications for apparent competition
    D M Tompkins
    Department of Biological Sciences, University of Stirling, UK
    Parasitology 122:187-93. 2001
    ..If this is the case, the associated decrease in the force of infection to which the partridge is exposed may be sufficient to change the model prediction from partridge exclusion to pheasant and partridge coexistence...
  3. ncbi request reprint The role of oxygen availability in the embryonation of Heterakis gallinarum eggs
    L M Saunders
    Institute of Biological Sciences, University of Stirling, UK
    Int J Parasitol 30:1481-5. 2000
    ..These results suggest that daily fluctuations in temperature influence development of the free-living stages and so development cannot be accurately predicted on the basis of constant temperature culture...
  4. ncbi request reprint Patterns of parasite aggregation in the wild European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus)
    B Boag
    Department of Biology, University of Stirling, Stirling FK9 4LA, UK
    Int J Parasitol 31:1421-8. 2001
    ..Myxomatosis had a marked effect on helminth distribution with substantially less aggregation in rabbits showing clinical signs of the disease...
  5. ncbi request reprint Strategies for nematode transmission: selective migration of Trichostrongylus tenuis infective larvae
    L M Saunders
    Institute of Biological Sciences, University of Stirling, UK
    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...
  6. ncbi request reprint Stochasticity accelerates nematode egg development
    L M Saunders
    Department of Biological Sciences, University of Stirling, Stirling FK9 4LA, U K
    J Parasitol 88:1271-2. 2002
    ..These findings show that the development time of H. gallnarum eggs is decreased by stochastic variation in temperature, which may have important implications for the effects of climate change on parasite availability...
