Title:  A review of the abomasal parasite count study in Florida.
Author(s): Jeter, L. K.
Year: 1981
Abstract: The contents from over 1500 deer abomasums were collected and analyzed for parasite numbers from 1975-1980. Abomasal parasite counts (APCs) were compared at various times with sex, age, weight, reproduction, population levels, seasonal variations, water levels, and kidney fat. The purpose of the study was to develop and refine the APC technique to a level that it can be reliably utilized by Florida Wildlife Biologists as a tool in devising deer management programs. The results indicated a relationship exists between the APCs and some of the data.
