Observations on the free-living stages of strongylid nematodes of the horse

  • C. P. Ogbourne (a1)
Extract

Observations have been made on the development and survival of the free-living stages in faeces deposited out of doors at different times of year, and on the migration of infective larvae to the surrounding herbage. Laboratory experiments were performed to assist in the interpretation of the field observations. Studies were made on the rate of development to the infective stage in faeces kept at different temperatures. The rates at which eggs and larvae of Strongylus vulgaris, S edentatus, S. equinus and Trichonema nassatum developed on faecal-agar cultures at different temperatures were compared. Studies were also made on the effect of desiccation of faeces on the development and survival of the free-living stages. The results of these observations are discussed in relation to the development of herbage infestations on British pastures.
