Abstract

Research was initiated in 1983 to investigate the ecology of Parelaphostrongylus tenuis in New Brunswick. The objectives were to determine the prevalence and intensity of infection in white-tailed deer, and to determine whether or not moose feces contained first stage larvae, signifying the completion of the life cycle of P. tenuis in this host. Forty-nine percent of deer pellet samples were positive and 60% of deer heads contained adults of P. tenuis. None of the moose pellet samples contained first stage larvae.
