11:40 AM ASPECTS OF MENINGEAL WORM (PARELAPHOSTRONGYLUS TENUIS)
Parelaphostrongylus tenuis, the meningeal worm is a nematode parasite that of white-tailed deer (1).
The best-known of these is the meningeal worm (Parelaphostrongylus tenuis), a nematode long implicated as a limiting factor of moose populations (Lankester 2001, 2010).
However, current knowledge of the nature of moose declines and the biology of meningeal worm (Parelaphostrongylus tenuis) makes this parasite the most credible explanation.

In addition, Bill and his students produced original research on the meningeal worm (Parelaphostrongylus tenuis) of white-tailed deer demonstrating its effects on wapiti and other ungulates native to western Canada and fought hard battles for the establishment of government policies that would prevent the translocation of this parasite from eastern North America where it is endemic.
Spatial segregation between moose and white-tailed deer at Voyageurs National Park may allow moose to persist despite the presence of meningeal worm (Parelaphostrongylus tenuis) in white-tailed deer.
His hypothesis was put to the test by experimentally infecting 2 moose calves with larvae of the meningeal worm from deer.
Because some of the subsequent mortalities were attributed to meningeal worm, Parelaphostrongylus tenuis, a study was done in 1995-1996 to determine potential exposure of moose to this parasite.
Eric found that most dying moose were in a severely malnourished state, and often parasitized by liver flukes, meningeal worms, winter ticks, and various infectious diseases.
