Summary

Discovery of a new host-parasite relationship, Parelaphostrongylus odocoilei in Dall's sheep (Ovis dalli dalli ) in the Canadian North, prompted the first investigation of the geographic distribution, pathogenesis, ecology and epidemiology of this parasite, as well as the related protostrongylid Protostrongylus stilesi , at Subarctic latitudes (60--65°N). All protostrongylid parasites have an indirect life-cycle, where first-stage larvae are shed in the feces of a mammalian definitive host, penetrate the foot of a gastropod intermediate host, and develop to infective third-stage larvae. Protostrongylid larvae were recovered from over 2000 fecal samples from thinhorn sheep (Ovis dalli ) and other hosts for P. odocoilei and P. stilesi [...]
