abstract

Brazilian wildlife birds constitute a group in which the parasite-host relationship still needs to be investigated.

The present study describes the occurrence of Contracaecum pelagicum Johnston & Mawson 1942 (Nematoda, Anisakidae) in a new host, Sula leucogaster Boddaert 1783 (Pelecaniformes, Sulidae), species commonly known as brown-booby
