Abstract

The article contains data on helminthofauna of syntopic B. bufo and R. temporaria from the Middle Urals and P. viridis and P. ridibundus from the Southern Urals, as well as parasites of R. arvalis and R. amurensis from the territory of the South-Eastern Trans-Urals. Three common helminthes species were identified in B. bufo and R. temporaria: O. filiformis, C. ornata and R. bufonis. In P. viridis and P. ridibundus common parasites were not observed. In R. arvalis and R. amurensis 7 common species parasites were found: O. filiformis, C. pulcher, R. bufonis, D. rastellus, H. cylindracea, E. recurvatum and O. ranarum. The parasitic community of B. bufo and R. temporaria are characterized by a high degree of similarity, unlike parasitocenoses of P. viridis and P. ridibundus. Infestation and diversity of parasites in syntopic R. arvalis and R. amurensis inhabiting Southeast Trans-Urals is higher in the tested individuals. Refs 10. Tables 1.
