Pathobiology of Heterakis gallinarum mono-infection and co-infection with Histomonas meleagridis in layer chickens. Schwarz A(1), Gauly M, Abel H, Daş G . We investigated whether density related effects are directly controlling lifetime fecundity of Heterakis gallinarum. Daily total numbers of H. infecting Brazilian turkeys are reported. The intestinal nematode Heterakis gallinarum appeared with a prevalence of 70% in the infected birds.

Help us improve the site by taking our survey. Heterakis gallinarum is not directly preyed upon, heteraks eggs which have been released into the soil can be eaten by other bird species, earthworms, and insects such as flies and grasshoppers.

Some compounds with a narrower spectrum are also effective against these worms, e. Upon ingestion by a host, the embryonated eggs hatch into second-stage juveniles in the gizzard or duodenum heherakis, and are passed to the cecum.

Savannas are grasslands with scattered individual trees that do not form a closed canopy. Heterakis infections are not very pathogenic for poultry. Nearctic living in the Nearctic biogeographic province, the northern part of the New World.

Fire and grazing are important in the long-term maintenance of grasslands. Earthworms can serve as paratenic hosts for juveniles, allowing them to move from the soil to a bird’s gut.


They also have a nervous system but no excretory organs and no gallijarum systemi.
