Record #187271:

Liver parasites and body condition in relation to environmental contaminants in caribou (Rangifer tarandus) from Labrador, Canada / Beth Pollock.

Title: Liver parasites and body condition in relation to environmental contaminants in caribou (Rangifer tarandus) from Labrador, Canada / Beth Pollock.
Author(s): Pollock, Beth.
Date: 2009.
In: Arctic. (2009.), Vol. 62(1) (2009)
Abstract: Investigates links between specific health parameters and contaminants found in caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) in George River herd. Evaluates 27 caribou killed by local Innu hunters between February-December 2001 for gross and microscopic pathology, body condition, liver parasitology, and contaminant levels in kidney and fat. Finds sampled caribou to be in adequate body condition for time of year; also contaminant levels in general to be relatively low, with exception of cadmium in kidneys. Identifies two types of liver parasite: liver fluke (Fascioloides magna) and tapeworm larva consistent with Taenia hydatigena.
