Abstract

A method is described for the identification of arthropod fragments in the faeces of gamebird chicks. The method of collection and preparation of faecal samples and the identification of commonly occurring arthropod parts is described. The use of diagnostic parts, specific to certain groups, enables the method to be used quantitatively as well as qualitatively. Photographs of the major diagnostic features are provided.
