The influence of human settlements on gastrointestinal helminths of wild monkey populations in their natural habitat

Mücke, Alexandra

Abstract:
Human-wildlife interactions have reached unprecedented levels in the present days and humans are changing the earth's ecosystems more rapidly and extensively than ever before. The aim of my work was to determine the influence of humans on the presence of gastrointestinal parasites in wild primates. My results are indicating that human induced changes to the monkey's habitat have a significant negative impact on the parasite burdens and parasite community structure of wild monkeys.
