Parasites Found on Ducks! Beavers Not Surprised!

Posted by The College of Science at OSU on March 25, 2008

Jerri Bartholomew, PhD and professor of microbiology at OSU studies fish parasites. In a study announced today and  published in the International Journal of Parasitology, she identifies nine cases of a newly found species of myxozoa in ducks.
