Abstract

The distribution of trypanosomes infecting wild ruminants of North America has only recently been investigated . Many isolates have been mensurally studied and were determined to be conspecific with Trypanosoma cervi. Widely divergent forms exist however, between host species and seasonally within a host . To determine the validity of all inclusions in the taxon and the extent of intraspecific variability , trypanosome isolates of moose, reindeer , antelope, muledeer, Roosevelt Elk and two discrete transplant populations of Rocky Mountain elk were characterized and differentiated using recombinant DNA techniques.
