Prevalence, Helminth, Cestodes, Nematodes, Trematodes, Gallus domesticus


The present review study overviews some basic information on various helminth parasites. It summarizes the significance of poultry & studies on helminth prevalence, specifically in host-domestic fowl. This study includes a list of some commonly reported gastrointestinal helminthic fauna in domestic fowl by various  researchers from various parts of the globe.
