Abstract

Fifty faecal samples of wild ruminants including 15 samples of Chital Axis axis, 15 of Neelgai Boselaphus tragocamelus, 10 of Gaur Bos gaurus and 10 of Sambar Cervus unicolor were collected from the peripheral forests around Jabalpur and subjected to coprological examination by standard techniques. The coprological examination of different wild herbivores showed that maximum helminth infection was present in Sambar (90.0%) followed by Neelgai (86.67%) whereas 80.0% infection was reported in Gaur and Chital. It was observed that 94.0% helminth infection was present in mixed form whereas only 6.0% mono-infection was observed.
