Update on recent publications
Research Pathway: Wildlife Health and Disease
Recently we have published two new articles. One is a short communication published in the Journal of Medical Entomology called “Characterization of New Molecular Markers of Three Botflies Parasitizing Cervid Hosts”, this manuscript reported the characterization of COI, 28S rDNA, ITS1, and ITS2 in Cephenemyia stimulator from roe deer and in Cephenemyia auribarbis and Pharyngomyia picta from red deer.
The other one, published in Parasitology Research, analyzed the prevalence and temporal evolution of the infection by the acanthocephalan Macracanthorhynchus hirudinaceus in the Valencian Community (Eastern Spain) with the information provided by 8 years of sampling with a total of 1486 wild boars.
