Variation in ectoparasite infestation on the brown antechinus, Antechinus stuartii , with regard to host, habitat and environmental parameters

Lorch, Dagmar; Fisher, Diana; Spratt, David M.


We studied ectoparasite infestation patterns in a wild population of brown antechinuses, Antechinus stuartii (Dasyuridae) at three sites in south-eastern New South Wales, over a period of seven months. Ectoparasite diversity on brown antechinuses was particularly high for a small mammal: 18 species of ectoparasites were recorded, including one undescribed species of mite. Ectoparasite infestation varied between study sites and changed seasonally. Variation between sites was related to habitat...[Show more]
