Does anyone know of any citations to parasites (helminths, 
protozoa or ectoparasites) in free range brush turkeys 
(Alectura lathami)a member of the interesting mound 
building birds (Megapodiidae)of eastern Australia. I have a 
reference to cerebrospinal infection with Baylisascaris 
from a case in St Louis Zoo believed to be derived 
from wild racoons,and published in JAVMA 1982! but we are 
a bit short on racoons here.
Thanks.
