Article

Summary

A study of diseases and parasites of pigs in the Solomon Islands during 1967 to 1969 indicated that infectious diseases were of little consequence. Four arthropod parasite species were found: one tick, one louse and two tabanids. The tick(Amblyomma cyprium cyprium) was extremely rare. Fifteen species of helminth parasites were recorded and of theseStephanurus dentatus was the most prevalent. All species were identified except a filariid, of which only the microfilariae were seen.

Produccion Porcina En Las Islas Salomon. II. Enfermedades Y Parasitos

Resumen

Se realizó un estudio en las Islas Salomón durante 1967–1969, sobre la importancia de las enfermedades porcinas infecciosas y parasitarias de mayor prevalencia. El estudio indicó poca importancia para las enfermedades infecto contagiosas. Se encontraron cuatro especies de parásitos artrópodos: una garrapata, un piojo y dos tábanos. La garrapata Ambyloma cyprium fue extremadamente rara. Se encontraron 15 especies de parásitos helmintos de los cuales el Stephanurus dentatus fué el más prevalente. Todas las especies encontradas se identificaron a excepción de una filaria adulta de la cual se observaron las microfilarias unicamente.
