Faunestic Diversity and Distribution of Cestode Parasites of Piscean, Avian and Mammalian Host
Vertebrates are known to harbour a number of parasitic infection i.e. trematodes, cestodes and nematodes which cause deterioration in their health and increase the rate of mortality of hosts. The parasite does not have the capability to obtain food directly from the ecosystem and hence they have no option but to adopt to live in or on some other organisms and derive their food either ecto or endo parasitically from it. If the flesh of fishes, birds and mammals were not properly cooked, cysts can enter inside the body of human and cause dangerous diseases to human beings. Since work on Piscean, avian and mammalian Cestodes in India had left a great deal of scope for research. Marathwada Region (M.S.) is a hot spot for Biodiversity studies, the aim of present work was to study Faunestic diversity of Piscean, Avian and mammalian cestodes of genus Lytocestus, Senga, Gangesia, Cotugnia, Davainea, Raillietina, Moniezia, Stilesia and Avitellina from Nanded region (M.S.) India. Diversity of Piscean Cestodes includes ten species of three genera. Four species of genus Lytocestus; four species of genus Senga and two species of genus Gangesia were reported. Eight species of three genera viz. Cotugnia (3 sp.), Daivenia (2 sp.) and Raillietina (3 sp.) were reported from avian host Gallus gallus domesticus. Whereas Seven species of three genera were reported from mammalian hosts. Three species of genus Moniezia; three species of Stilesia and one species of Avitellina were collected from Capra hircus and Ovis bharal. The study represents diversity and distribution pattern of Piscean, Avain and Mammalian cestodes and made detailed survey of cestode parasites from Nanded, (M.S.) India.
