Description

Title:Preliminary Studies on Parasites of Upland Game Birds and Fur-Bearing Mammals in Illinois
Author(s):Leigh, W. Henry
Subject(s):Parasites

Mammals
Illinois
Abstract:THE following is a brief report on studies of the parasites of Illinois upland game birds and fur-bearing mammals. It was undertaken by the author during graduate study at the University of Illinois as a project of the Section of Game Research and Management of the Illinois Natural History Survey. While it obviously is not to be regarded as giving a satisfactory picture of host-parasite relations of the animals mentioned, the information embodied by this paper constitutes most of that available concerning these relationships in Illinois, and is to be viewed only as an explorative attempt to evaluate the possibilities for further productive and more intensive work to determine what part parasites play in the economy of nature as it concerns these animals in Illinois.
