Throughout the study at Fisheating Creek, average
monthly temperatures never fell below 60o F.
Transmission and Vector Abundance
Cu 1 i coi de s eden i C. h i nman i C. arboricol a and C.
knowltoni were the only species captured in sufficient
numbers in Bennett traps, to be implicated as potential
vectors at Paynes Prairie and Fisheating Creek. Because
representatives of all 4 species had distinctive peaks
in activity at sunset, biting activity was plotted for
each as the logjo 0f the number captured during the peak
Bennett trap run for a sampling night, plus 1.
Paynes Prairie. During the 2-year study at Paynes
Prairie, biting collections and light trap collections for
each species were positively correlated (Figures 13, 14).
Specimens of edeni were active at variable levels
throughout the year. Bennett trap and light trap
catches were usually lowest during the cooler, winter
months between January and March (Figures 13, 14, 18).
Transmission of 1C me 1eagrid i s to sentinel birds began soon
after the biting activity and abundance of (C eden i
increased in late April, 1983 and 1984, with the onset
of warmer spring weather. Peaks in the transmission of H.
me 1 eagridis to sentinel turkeys corresponded to minor peaks


56
Between April, 1983, and May, 1984, unengorged
specimens of Cu I icoi des captured at Paynes Prairie and
Fisheating Creek were pooled and inoculated into
domestic turkey poults. At Paynes Prairie, 2 of 9 pools of
C. eden i totaling 343 individuals, were positive for H.
me 1eagrid i s resulting in an estimated minimum yearly
prevalence of 0.58% (Table 8). The positive pools were
collected in November, 1983, and May, 1984, during periods
of active, natural transmission of the parasite.
At Fisheating Creek, 17 of 49 pools of C^ edeni,
totaling 816 individuals, were positive for me 1eagridis,
resulting in an estimated minimum yearly prevalence of
2.08% (Table 9). Positive pools were collected in
April, July, September and November, 1983, and February,
March and May, 1984, during active natural transmission of
the parasite.
Unengorged individuals of other species of Cu 1 icoi des
were not captured in sufficient numbers to make regular
attempts at isolation. Pools of O hinmani, C. arboricola
and C^ knowltoni, collected at unequal intervals throughout
the year were negative for me 1eagridis (Table 10).

diverse than was realized previously. There is no reason
to suggest that h a emo p r o t e i d s are any less so.
Accordingly, several authors have proposed that this genus
should be divided into 2 genera (Bennett et al., 1965).
They suggested that species transmitted by hippoboscid
flies, with large oocysts containing several hundred blunt
sporozoites, would remain in the genus Haemop r ot eu s
Those species transmitted by ceratopogonids with small
oocysts containing fewer than 100 pointed sporozoites,
would be placed in the genus Parahaemoproteus.
The size and presence or absence of septa in the
exoerythrocytic schizonts has been proposed as another
criterion for separating the 2 genera (Garnham, 1966).
One form of schizont, found in birds infected with H.
co1umbae, H. 1ophor t yx H. pa 1umbis and f ringi 11ae,
is sausage or oval shaped, lacks cytomeres, and occurs
in endothelial cells in a variety of tissues including
lung, liver, spleen, kidney, bone marrow, cecum and heart.
The other type, described in birds infected with H,
ga r nhami, is large and focal with diameters of 200 urn
or larger and contains numerous cytomeres, separated from
one another by septa (Garnham, 1966). Unfortunately,
schizont morphology has not correlated perfectly with
vector or oocyst size. This is exemplified by the
exoerythrocytic stages of fU f r i ngi 11ae (Khan and Falls,
1969). This species, which develops in Cu 1 icoi des has

calculated when more than 1 sample was taken during a
sentinel period (Bid1ingmeyer, 1969).
Between December, 1982, and November, 1984, collecting
trips were made approximately once a month to Lykes
Fisheating Creek Wildlife Management Area at Palmdale,
Florida, 310 km SSE of Paynes Prairie. This area has
one of the most dense Wild Turkey populations in the state
(Powell, 1967; L.E. Williams, pers comm.). Earlier
sentinel work by Forrester (unpublished) had shown that
H. meleagridis was transmitted year-round in this area.
A study site was selected in a live oak harrmock,
surrounded by cypress, at the edge of a creek swamp, 5
km SSE of Palmdale. During each collecting trip, a Bennett
trap was operated in the middle level of the canopy for
1-3 consecutive evenings and occasionally at night and
during the day. The New Jersey light trap, supplemented
with dry ice, was operated 1 night/trip in the middle
level of the canopy at a second hoist, 30 meters from
the first. Three to 5, 2-week-old domestic poults were
also exposed at the study site for the duration of each
trip. They were housed, as described earlier, I meter
above the ground in a sentinel cage. The birds were
transported to and from Gainesville in a screened,
vector-proof cage and bled as described earlier to diagnose
infections.

amorphous, eosinophilic material that resembled the
material observed in necrotic mega 1 os ch i zonts of H.
me 1eagridis.
The mega 1oschizonts described by Nair and Forrester
(unpublished) in skeletal muscle of a naturally infected
Wild Turkey are identical in structure and size to
meg a I oschizonts of me 1eagrid i s from experimentally
infected turkeys. Many of the cysts observed by Nair
and Forrester contained disorganized masses of
basophilic material. Since the tissue had been frozen for
several weeks prior to fixation, degenerative changes in
the megalosch i zont morphology may be an artifact of the
manner in which the tissue had been handled. The discovery
of these forms in a naturally infected Wild Turkey
indicates that the site of development and the
associated host response are not artifacts related to
the way the experimental turkeys were infected.
Mi 1tgen et al. (1931) noted the similarity between the
exoerythrocytic stages of desseri and Arthrocyst i s
ga 1 1 i an organism of uncertain taxonomic status described
by Levine et al. (1970) in chickens from India, and
suggested that the 2 organisms may be synonymous. Other
descriptions of cyst-forming organisms have been
reported from a variety of avian hosts in several families
of birds. Most infections have been characterized by
the presence of large, intramuscular schizonts, similar in


236
Since 14-day-old meg a 1 oschizonts contained numerous
discrete bodies that resembled the cytomeres described
in developing megaloschizonts of Leucocytozoon, the
terminology as defined by 3ray ( 1960) has been applied
to megaloschizonts of me 1eagridis.
The severe lameness and extensive myopathy that
occurred in infected birds during development of the small,
first-generation schizonts of me 1eagridis is unusual for
haemospor i d i an infections. The early, pre-erythrocytic
stages of most species of PI a smodium do not elicit any host
reaction and later exoetythrocytic schizonts appear to
be pathogenic only during unusual circumstances when the
parasite is exceptionally infectious to the host (Huff,
1969). Little host reaction has been observed in
association with the small endothelial schizonts of H.
f ringi 1 Iae H. coIumbae H. pa 1umbis H lophortyx, H.
ne 11 i on i s and macea 1 1 um i (Khan and Falls, 1969;
Moharrmed, 1965; Ahmed and Mohammed, 1977; 3aker, 1966a;
O'Roke, 1930; Sibley and Werner, 1984; Greiner, 1971).
Garnham (1966) reported cellular infiltration similar to
acute interstitial pneumonia in the alveolar septa of Rock
Doves with heavy, early infections of co1umbae, but did
not provide any details of the infection. Of the 3 genera
of avian haemosporidians the exoerythrocytic stages of
Leucocytozoon have been documented as the most
pathogenic (Lund and Farr, 1965). However, most pathology

September, 1983, and below average during July and August,
1983, and July, 1984 (Figure 16).
Two peaks in transmission occurred in 1983 at each
site. A small peak was evident between July and August and
again between November and December at Site A. Peaks at
Site B occurred 1 to 2 months earlier between May and June
and between October and November. In 1984, transmission at
both sites began in mid-April and continued until the
end of the study in July.
Fisheating Creek. Between February, 1983, and
November, 1984, 52 of 66 (78.8%) sentinel turkeys
exposed during collecting trips to Fisheating Creek became
infected with me 1eag r i d i s Exposures as short as 24
hours in November and December, 1983, and January, March
and June, 1984, were sufficient to infect 100% of the 3 or
4 sentinel turkeys that were taken during each trip.
Between June, 1983, and September, 1984, 50 100% of
the sentinel birds exposed during each trip became infected
with me 1eag rid i s (Figure 18). Transmission did not
occur in February, March and April, 1983, during periods of
abnormally cool and wet weather (Figures 19, 20).
Transmission was not detected in November, 1984, when
monthly precipitation was above average and mean
temperatures were slightly below normal (Figures 19, 20).

membranes and a thickened, ostniophilic inner membrane
composed of 2 unit membranes in close apposition to one
another (Bradbury and Roberts, 1970; Sterling, 1972;
Sterling and Aikawa, 1973). By contrast, the inner
membrane of mature gametocytes of me 1eagrid i s consisted
of a single unit membrane that was thicker and more
osmiophilic than the outer 2 membranes. It is unlikely that
the difference was a result of poor fixation, since
other membranous structures within the gametocytes and
their host cells were well preserved.
Sterling and Aikawa (1973) suggested that the
double inner membrane of gametocytes of co1umbae was
a remnant of the intramembranous complex of merozoites.
3ased on observations of PIasmod i urn spp., they suggested
that this 2-layered complex was retained in merozoites that
had recently invaded a red blood cell if the merozoite was
to become a gametocyte. De differentiation of the
complex occurred if asexual, schizogonic stages developed.
The similarities in structure and development among most
haemosporidian parasites make it unlikely that the
thickened, inner pellicle of me 1eagridis had a different
origin. Perhaps the 2-layered intramembranous complex
of merozoites of me 1 e a g t i d i s fused to form the
single, thickened layer that ivas observed in gametocytes.
Other studies of macrogametocytes of Haemoproteus and
Leucocytozoon have noted the presence of amorphous,

cage compartments to one another, the inevitable fecal
contamination that occurred in the food and water and
successful isolation of Salmone11 a from representatives of
each experimental group suggests that all the birds were
infected. Since birds vary in their output of
Sa 1 mone 1 la organisms from day to day, the low number of
Salmone11 a isolations from cloacal swabs of each group at 4
and at 3 weeks post-infection is not surprising (Williams,
1978). It is significant that the only birds to develop
clinical salmonellosis were those in the high dose group.
They exhibited signs of infection between 12 and 28 days
post-infection when stress from the lb me 1eag r i dis
infection reached its peak. Perhaps the Haemoproteus
infection weakened the high dose group sufficiently to make
t h em susceptible to Salmon ella and other secondary
bacterial and fungal infections as well. S a 1mo n e 1 la i s
frequently isolated from commercial feeds that use
animal products to boost protein levels (Williams, 1978).
It is likely that the turkeys used in the experiment
acquired their infections from the unmedicated game bird
chow they were fed.
Most authors have considered Haemoproteus to be a
relatively benign parasite (3ennett et al., 1982; Kemp,
1978; Fallis and Desser, 1977; Levine, 1961). Considering
how prevalent Haemoproteus is in many bird populations
(Bennett, 1982), the few isolated reports of pathogenic

Parasitemia
Haemoproteus me 1eagr idis was successfully transmitted
to 1 of 2 Ring-necked Pheasants, 1 of 2 Chuckars and 2
turkeys that acted as positive controls in the first series
of experimental infections. One of the 2 inoculated
Guineafowl was found dead 6 days post-infection (DPI). One
day prior to death, the bird appeared healthy. At
necropsy, all organs appeared normal. Histological
sections of liver, lung, heart, kidney, gizzard, pancreas,
duodenum, cecum and brain were unremarkable. Skeletal
muscle and spleen were not fixed. The surviving inoculated
Guineafowl and all negative controls failed to develop
patent infections throughout the duration of the
exper ¡merit.
All infected birds became patent at 17 DPI. The 2
infected turkeys reached an average peak parasitemia of 813
parasites per 10,000 red blood cells at 22 DPI. The
parasitemia rapidly fell by 28 DPI to 33 parasites per
10,000 red blood cells and remained at levels less than 15
parasites per 10,000 red blood cells for the duration of
the experiment (Figure 59). By contrast, the positive
Chuckar reached a lower peak parasitemia of 162
parasites per 10,000 red blood cells at 17 DPI. A

Ultrathin sections were cut on glass knives, stained with
5% (w/v) aqueous uranyl acetate and 2% (w/v) Reynold's
lead citrate and examined with a Hitachi HU-1 IE electron
microscope.
Mature gametocytes were fixed by drawing blood from
the wing vein of a turkey infected with H_^ me 1eagr i d i s
into a syringe containing the primary fixative. The
resulting clots were diced in the primary fixative, fixed
for 1 hour at room temperature, washed with 3, 10-minute
changes of buffer, post-fixed with osmium for 1 hour at
room temperature, washed with 3 more 10-minute changes
of buffer and dehydrated and embedded as described above.
Several drops of fresh blood from the same turkey were
placed on a glass slide in a humidity chamber to allow
the gametocytes to exf1 age 11 ate. Two minutes and 3 minutes
after the drops were made, the clots were flooded with
primary fixative and processed as above.
Specimens of edeni that had engorged on a turkey
with a heavy H^ me 1eag ridis infection, 3 and 6 days
earlier, were dissected in a drop of Aed e s aegypt i
Ringer's. The midguts were carefully removed, flooded
with a drop of primary fixative and processed through
the first series of washes. To facilitate handling and
to prevent loss during subsequent steps, the midguts were

of the gametocyte in sheets and whorls and floats free
in the host cell cytoplasm. Sterling (1972) did not
observe the detachment of the outer layer from gametocytes
of metc'nnikovi but did note that it was missing once
the gametocytes became extracellular. Desser (1972a)
described mu 1ti I aminar, membranous structures external
to maturing, intracellular gametocytes of ve 1ans, but
failed to associate their appearance with the loss of
the outer layer of the pellicle in extracellular
gametocytes. He suggested instead that they were
altered bands of microtubules from host red blood cells
that normally aid in maintaining the shape of the cell.
Micrographs published by Bradbury and Roberts (1970) and
Aikawa and Sterling (1974), as well as observations from
this study, leave little doubt that these membranous sheets
and whorls originated from the outer layer of the
gametocyte pellicle. This process appears to be limited to
the genus Haemoproteus and has not been reported from
studies of PI a smodium o r Leucocytozoon (Aikawa and
Sterling, 1974a). Ribosome-1ike granules similar to those
observed on some membranous whorls in this study were also
observed by 3radbury and Roberts (1970) on whorls that
detached from gametocytes of ib co1umbae. The significance
of the granules and their origin are unknown.

containing 10% turkey serum in a glass tissue grinder
in wet ice for several minutes. The resulting slurry
was then inoculated as described into uninfected poults.
Estimates of the total number of sporozoites inoculated
were made with a hemocytometer. Permanent sporozoite
preparations were made by mixing the slurry 1:10 with
turkey serum. A drop was smeared on a glass slide, air
dried and fixed and stained as above. Measurements of
stained sporozoites were made as above.
Estimation of Prevalence
During operation of the Bennett trap, only 50-70%
of captured specimens of Cu 1 icoi des normally took a blood
meal from the bait turkey. Unengorged specimens of
Cu 1 icoi des were identified by wing pattern, grouped by
species and ground in lots of 10-20 in Aede s aegyp ti
ringers or RPMI tissue culture media, as described
earlier. The slurry from each pool was inoculated
intraperitonea 11 y into separate 1- to 2-week old turkey
poults. These birds were bled as described earlier to
diagnose any infections. Minimum yearly prevalence of
H. me 1eag rid i s in pools of naturally infected eden i
was calculated for Paynes Prairie and Fisheating Creek
as the total number of positive pools / total number of
specimens of edeni.

had villous processes extending £rom their external
surfaces. They also noted that the megaloschizonts were
divided into thick-walled compartments resembling tubes.
Megaloschizonts of me 1 e ap,r i d i s differ from those
observed by Desser (1970a) and Gardiner et at. (1984). The
megaloschizonts observed in this study were
extracellular and had thick, laminated walls composed of
electron-dense, granular material. Material examined by
Gardiner et al. (1984) was fixed initially in buffered
formalin and then post-fixed with osrni um-d i chromate and
processed for electron microscopy. The poor
preservation of cellular detail in their samples make
comparisons with the megaloschizonts of me 1e agridis
difficult. However, the villous processes on the cyst
walls and cornpa r trnen ta 1 i za t i on of megaloschizonts by the
thick wall were never observed in megaloschizonts of H.
me 1eagridis .
Desser (1970a) described merozoite formation in
megaloschizonts of simo n di by fragmentation of the
cytomere cytoplasm. By contrast, Gardiner et al. (1984)
reported that merozoite development in megaloschizonts from
Northern Bobwhites occurred by budding into an interior
vacuole within the cytomere cytoplasm rather than by the
protrusion of developing merozoites from the cytomere
surface. Neither process was observed in
megaloschizonts of me 1eagridis.

Plasma protein concentration. Statistical analysis of
plasma protein concentration revealed that all variables in
the model statement were significant (p < .0125).
When comparisons were made by week, all 3 groups were
significantly different at I week PI. Control birds had
the highest average plasma protein concentration and
high dose birds had the lowest. 3y 2 weeks PI, average
plasma protein concentrations were significantly greater
for high dose birds than either low dose or control birds.
The 3 experimental groups were not significantly different
at 3 and 4 weeks PI. At 5 and 6 weeks PI, high dose birds
had average plasma protein concentrations that were
significantly higher than low dose and control birds. The
3 groups were not significantly different at 7 and 8 weeks
PI (Figure 40).
When comparisons were made within groups, the low dose
birds had significantly lower average plasma protein
concentrations at weeks 0, 1 and 3 PI than they did at
weeks 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 PI.
Average plasma protein concentrations in the high dose
group were significantly lower at 1 and 3 weeks PI than
they were at 0, 4, 7 and 8 weeks PI. Average
concentrations at the latter 4 weeks were significantly
lower than those at 2 and 5 weeks PI. Average values at 0
and 3 weeks PI were also significantly lower than those at
4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 weeks PI.

Desser (1972a, 1972b) suggested that the large
crystalloid inclusions in ookinetes of ve 1ans originated
from amorphous, dense lipid inclusions in the
macrogametocyte. He felt that this material was converted
to a crystalline form by addition of a protein component
by a network of endoplasmic reticulum that surrounded
the precursor material. In contrast, crystalloid particles
in ookinetes of co1umbae first appeared between the
lamellae of the endoplasmic reticulum (Gallucci, 1974b).
Other differences between the ookinetes of these 2 species
occur in the fine structure of their anterior ends.
Gallucci (1974b) found a distinctive conoid in ookinetes
of co1umbae. Ookinetes of other haemosporidia ,
including fH ve 1ans, seem to lack this structure, although
observations among some species are limited (Gallucci,
1974b; Desser, 1972b). Other anterior organelles such
as conoidal rings, the apical pore, the canopy and
subpe 11 i cu 1ar microtubules appear to be present in both
H. co1umbae and ve 1ans, although Gallucci (1974b) and
Desser (1972b) interpret their micrographs differently.
Differences in interpretation are particularly evident
in descriptions of the polar ring and ribs in ookinetes
of these 2 species. Desser (1972b) interpreted structures
resembling the ribs described by Gallucci (1974b) in H.
co1umbae as an empty subpe 11 i cu 1 ar space and stated that
the subpe11 icu1 ar microtubules in ve 1 an s arose from

Pathology
Experimental infections of Haemoproteus meleagridis
produced a moderate to severe myositis and myocarditis
in domestic turkeys. The inflammatory reactions were
associated with the development of first and
second-generation schizonts. The lameness exhibited by
infected birds and the gross and microscopic lesions
were similar to naturally acquired infections of
Arthrocystis gall i (Levine et a I ., 1970; Opitz et a 1 ,
1982). Both Levine et al. (1970) and Opitz et al. (1982)
noted extensive muscle necrosis, inflammation and
hemorrhage around the mega 1oschizonts. Opitz et al. ( 1982)
also observed dystrophic calcification of necrotic
muscle fibers and the formation of scar tissue. Neither
Opitz et al. ( 1 982 ) or Levine et al. (1970) reported
the thrombus formation or cicculatory disturbances that
were observed in this study. It is likely that they
developed in association with the acute and chronic
infla mm atory responses to intact and ruptured
mega 1 osch i zonts and the associated necrotic changes in
surrounding muscle fibers.
The distribution and morphology of second-generation
megalosch i zonts observed in the pathogenicity experiment
was identical to mega 1 oschizonts found during earlier
experimental infections. In addition, small,
thin-walled schizonts that contained both elongate

Thirty-six, 1-day-old, female, broad-breasted white
turkey poults were obtained in October, 1984. They were
housed together in a brooder in a vector-proof room for
7 days, then banded with metal wing tags and randomly
assigned to 3 experimental groups. Birds in the first
group were inoculated IP with separate pools of 5 C edeni
that had taken blood meals from 4 domestic poults infected
with hC me 1eag ridis The specimens of Cu 1 icoi des were
captured in October, 1984, at Fisheating Creek with a
Bennett trap, held for 8-9 days at room temperature to
allow development of sporozoites and then ground by hand
in a glass tissue grinder for several minutes in an ice
bath. The insects were triturated in RPMI tissue culture
medium containing 10% turkey serum. The 4 domestic poults
used to infect the wild-captured specimens of eden i
had acquired their infections from a previous exposure
at Fisheating Creek. Capture of specimens of C^ edeni
occurred during 2 evenings on days 9 and 10 of patency
when most gametocytes were fully mature. All 4 birds
had similar parasitemias. Engorged C^ eden i from both
trap nights were assigned randomly to pools used to infect
the experimental poults. Sporozoites from I pool of
specimens of C^ eden i were counted with a hemocy tometer

Bradbury and Trager (1968b) described the polarization
of mi crogametocytes of H^ col umbae into 2 halves 1
that contained organelles such as axonemes, mitochondria
and food vacuoles and another that contained remnants of
the microgametocyte nucleus. They observed the
disintegration of the nuclear membrane and a
condensation of nuclear material around the bases of
developing axonemes. The condensed masses of nuclear
material were subsequently surrounded by a membrane and
incorporated into microgametes that "peeled" from the
mi ergametocy te.
Desser (1972a) described the formation of atypical
cent r¡oles and electron dense nuclear plaques in
mi c r ogame t ocy t e s of ve 1 an s He did not observe the
polarization of exflagellating microgametocytes
described by Bradbury and Trager (1968b), but did describe
the breakdown of the nuclear membrane and the subsequent
condensation of masses of chromatin around the bases of
developing axonemes.
Observations from this study are very limited, but
they are most similar to the process described by Aikawa
and Sterling (1974a). The nuclear membrane remained intact
in m i c r og ame t oc y t e s of me 1 eag r i d i s throughout the
process of exflagellation, but was often difficult to
discern. During the final budding of microgametes, the
nucleus appeared to be stretched to their base. The

Engorged specimens of ed e n i and hinmani were
collected and held as described earlier for 7 to 9 days.
They were randomly assigned to pools of 48 specimens of
C. eden i and 33 specimens of h i nman i triturated as
described earlier and inoculated IP into 6, 5-day-old,
female broad-breasted white turkey poults. One pool was
ground and quantified with a hemocytometer to estimate
total sporozoite dose. Each bird was inoculated with
1.0 cc of slurry containing approximately 169,000
sporozoites. Six control birds of the same sex and age
were inoculated intraperitonea 1 1 y with 1.0 cc of the
carrier.
On days 3, 5, 8, 11, 14 and 17 post-infection, 1
inoculated poult and 1 control bird were killed by
decapitation. Representative pieces of pectoral muscle,
liver, spleen, lung, heart, brain, kidney, bone marrow,
duodenum, pancreas and cecum were fixed in 10% buffered
formalin and Carnoy's fixative. Tissue fixed in Carnoy's
was dehydrated in absolute ethanol, cleared overnight
in amyl acetate and embedded in paraplast. Sections were
cut at 4 um and stained with hematoxylin and eosin or
Giemsa-colophonium (Bray and Garnham, 1962).

(Table 15). However, average cell width was greater in
mi ergametocyts from the pheasant and probably related
to the large, lateral displacement oE the host cell nucleus
(Figure 65). The average adjusted number of pigment
granules in mi crogametocytes from the Chuckar was
considerably higher than values from the pheasant and
turkey.
A discriminant analysis was performed on adjusted
variables from a calibration data set derived from 15
m i crogametocytes from each host. It correctly
identified 73.3% of the discriminant scores from the
Chuckar, 60.0% of the scores from the pheasant and 66.7% of
the scores from the turkey (Table 16).
The derived function was tested with a smaller data
set composed of adjusted measurements of 4 microgametocytes
from each of the 3 host species. It correctly identified 3
(75%) Chuckar scores, 3 (75%) turkey scores, but no (0%)
pheasant scores. Two pheasant scores were identified as
turkey, 1 as Chuckar and 1 failed to meet the criteria for
inclusion into any of the 3 categories (Table 17).
Infected host cells macrogametocytes. Host cells
infected with macrogametocytes underwent a number of common
changes in each host species (Figures 60, 62, 64). All had
greater cell lengths and cell areas than corresponding
uninfected cells from the same host species. Infected host

1971; Falls and Bennett, 1961; Miltgen et al., 1981). The
relatively low (50%) infectivity of salivary gland
sporozoites ftom specimens of edeni, hinmani and
C. arboricola as well as the lack of infectivity of
sporozoites from the single specimen of haematopotus,
may be related to the problems inherent in handling sticky
salivary glands that are only 100 200 um long.
Another possibility is that the sporozoites observed in
these wild-caught specimens of Cu 1 icoides belonged to
another species of haemosporid i an Bennett and Coombs
(1975) reported a sporozoite prevalence of 13.6% in 184
individuals of sti lobezziodes f r om insular
Newfoundland. However, only 1 individual (0.5%) out of 210
unengorged, wild-caught specimens of ed e ni from
Paynes Prairie was positive for salivary gland sporozoites
by dissection, in spite of the fact that collections
were made during periods of active transmission of H.
me 1 eagridis. Natural infections were not detected in
salivary gland dissections of unengorged specimens of C.
arbor icola or C_^ h i nma n i Attempts to transmit H.
me 1eag ridis with individual Cu 1 icoi des and with pools of
several specimens that had been ground in a suitable
carrier were more successful.
The 17 day prepatent period of successful experimental
infections was less than the 28 day period that Greiner and
Forrester (1980) estimated from observations of sentinel


104
and brownish-black. Those in the lung were smaller and
golden-brown. All were contained in macrophages.
Follicular hyperplasia was corrmon in the spleens of all
infected birds. The degree of hyperplasia as well as
the number of pigment deposits varied directly with the
size of the infective dose.
Sections of gut from the control, low dose and high
dose birds had a few multifocal areas of infiltrate
composed of heterophils. Coccidian parasites were not
observed. One high dose bird had a granulomatous
peritonitis. The granulomas were composed of macrophages,
heterophils and giant cells that surrounded amorphous,
eosinophilic masses.
Sections of brain, bone marrow, kidney, heart,
proventri cu 1 us and gizzard were unremarkable.
Parasitemia. Young gametocytes appeared in the
peripheral circulation of all birds in the high and low
dose groups at 17 DPI. The control birds remained
uninfected throughout the study. The parasitemia in
both infected groups quickly reached a peak by 21 DPI
and then rapidly fell within 7 days to values less than 10%
of those at the crisis (Figure 36). A second, smaller peak
occurred at approximately 5 weeks pos t-infection Both
groups remained patent through the course of the study,
although parasitemias were often less than 1.0 %.

e g. Toxoplasma and Hammondia, develop in other organs
or tissues (Frenkel and Dubey, 1975; Frenkel, 1973).
The single, 3-day-old schizont that was found appeared
to be within the capillary endothelium (Figure 42).
However, the presence of disrupted muscle fibers in the
infected bird and the development of 5-day-old schizonts
both within and between muscle fibers suggests that
development may occur in other locations as well
(Figures 43, 44, 53).
Studies of other avian haemoproteids have reported
development of the mature exoerythrocytic stages in

Farmer (1965 ) found large mega 1 oschizonts within the
gizzard muscles of Rock Doves with natural infections of H.
sacharovi. He suggested that they may be the
exoerythrocytic stages of H^ sacharovi, but was unable
to transmit the infections with transplants and injections
of infected gizzards. Similar forms have not been found in
Mourning Doves infected with HL sacharovi (Farmer, 1965;
Greiner, 1971) and most workers have ignored the
possibility that they may be part of a haemoproteid life
cycle. Mi 1tgen et al. (1931) reported the development
of megaloschizonts within muscle tissue of

The slurry from a second pool of 37 engorged
specimens of eden i and 84 engorged specimens of C.
hinmani, collected in July, 1984, was divided equally
among 2, 3-day-old Northern Bobwhites, Col inus virginianus,
2, 7-day-old Rhode Island red chickens, Ga11u s ga 1 1 us ,
and 2, 5-day-old broad-breasted white turkeys. The
chickens were obtained from a local hatchery and the quail
were obtained from the Department of Poultry Science,
University of Florida. Each bird was inoculated IP with
0.1 cc of slurry containing approximately 5,000
sporozoites. A pair of uninfected birds of each species
was kept as negative controls. All birds were maintained
and bled as described earlier. Tissues from birds that
died prior to the end of both experiments were fixed in
10% buffered formalin and embedded, sectioned and stained
as described earlier.
Morphometric Analysis
Parasitemias were quantified as the number of
parasites per 10,000 red blood cells as described earlier.
Morphometric parameters were determined from a maximum
of 15 mature, 7- to 9-day-old mi crogametocytes and 15
mature, 7- to 9-day-old macrogametocytes from each host.
Measurements were made by the methods of Bennett and
Campbell ( 1972) as modified by Forrester et al (1977).

where the basement membrane was stretched tightly over the
oocyst wall (Figure 83).
The pellicle surrounding the 3-day-old sporo'olast was
imme diately interior to the oocyst wall. It was
composed of a single unit membrane, underlaid in many
places with dark, osmiophilic thickenings (Figure 83).
Prominent, membrane-bound, lipid-like inclusions were
clustered together near the center of 3-day-old oocysts
(Figure 83). Surrounding these and scattered throughout
the cytoplasm were numerous mitochondria with tubular
cristae (Figure 83). Several irregularly shaped nuclei
with prominent nucleoli were present around the
periphery of the parasites. The nucleoplasm had a density
similar to the cytoplasm and was difficult to discern in
areas where the nuclear envelope was indistinct (Figure
83). Spindle fibers and kinetic centers were not observed.
Six-day-old oocysts. 3y 6 days, oocysts ranged in
development from immature forms, resembling 3-day-old

than the 3-day-old forms had more space between the
sporoblast body and the oocyst wall. Numerous budding
sporozoites developed around the periphery of the
sporoblast. The buds originated under the osmiophilic

Failure to detect developing schizonts at 11 days
post-infection may have been because the infected bird had
an infection of low intensity. The large difference in
size between the 8-day-old and the 14-day-old forms
makes it unlikely that a third generation of schizogony
could have taken place in other tissues.
The large size of the second-generation
megaloschizonts of me 1e a a ridis is comparable to
mega 1oschizonts that have been found in birds with natural
infections of aa r nhami desser i and s acharovi
(Garnham, 1966; Miltgen et al., 1981; Farmer, 1965).
However, the megaloschizonts of aarnhami contained
cytomeres, separated from each other by distinct septa,
lacked a thick, hyaline wall and have not been found in
muscle tissue (Garnham, 1966). Miltgen et al. (1981)
described "pseudo-septa" in inmature megaloschizonts of H.
de s s e r i The authors suggested, though, that these were
artifacts caused by contraction of the surrounding
muscle fibers during fixation of the tissue. The presence
of a hyaline cyst wall around megaloschizonts of H,
de s se ri, the absence of septa in mature forms and the
exclusive development in muscle tissue were very similar to
H. me 1eag ridis. The thick-walled, aseptate cysts
described by Farmer (1965) were also very similar to mature
megaloschizonts of me 1eagridis, but their development
appeared to be limited to gizzard muscle. Immature

suggesting that the early inflanmatory reaction may have
been to dead and dying host cells and parasites.
The host response surrounding 14-day-old and
17-day-old second-generation mega 1oschizonts is similar to
the host reactions to the large intramuscular cysts of
Sarcocystis. Leek et al. (1977) noted multifocal
perivascular inflamnatory infiltrates in the musculature of
lambs that were experimentally infected with Sarcocys tis.
The response was not associated with developing sarcocysts,
but was apparent around degenerating cysts. Mundy et al.
(1975) reported similar results. Other studies of
Sarcocystis and Hammondia have reported the necrosis and
mineralization of muscle fibers adjacent to developing
cysts (Cawthorn et al., 1984; Frenkel and Dubey, 1975).
Among haemosporidian parasites, the host response
to mega 1 oschizonts of me Ieagridis is similar to host
reactions to simondi. Miller et al. (1983), Desser
(1967), Cowan (1957) and Newberne (1957) reported the
presence of mixed inflammatory infiltrates composed of
mononuclear cells, heterophils, plasma cells and red blood
cells around both intact and ruptured mega 1 oschizonts as
well as necrotic changes in the surrounding host
tissue. Cowan (1957) and Miller et al. (1983) described
the spontaneous necrosis of Leucocytozoon
megaloschizonts in the absence of invading host cells. In
both studies, necrotic mega 1oschizonts were filled with an

Infection of Hosts
In June and July, 1984, domestic turkeys infected
with H^ me 1 eagr i d i s were used as bait birds in Bennett
traps operated at Fisheating Creek. Engorged specimens
of eden i and h i nman i were collected, held at 25o
C for 7 days to allow development of sporozoites, pooled
and ground in Aedes aegyp t i Ringers (Hayes, 1953). The
slurry from the first pool of 40 specimens of edeni
and 32 specimens of hinmani, collected in June, was
divided equally among 2, 2-day-old Chukar Partridges,
A1e c t o ris c h u c k a r, 2, 2-day-old Guineafowl, Numid a

co1chicus and 2, 7-day-old broad-breasted white turkey
poults. The Chuckars, Guineafowl and Ring-necked Pheasants
were obtained from Morris Hatchery (Miami, Florida).
Each bird was inoculated IP with 0.15 cc of slurry.
Sporozoite counts of the slurry with a hemocytometer
revealed that each bird received approximately 375
sporozoites. Pairs of uninfected Chuckars, Guineafowl,
Ring-necked Pheasants and turkeys were kept as negative
controls. All birds were housed by species in separate
battery cages in a vector-proof room and fed and watered
as described earlier. Smears were prepared from blood
obtained from leg veins of all birds, 3 times a week,

electron dense thickening and associated intranuclear
spindle in 1 macrogametocyte Since serial sections
were not cut, it is likely that they may 'nave been missed.
A single cytostoine normally occurs in mature
gametocytes of columbae and rL metchnikovi (Bradbury and
Roberts, 1970; Sterling, 1972). Gallucci (1974a) and
Bradbury and Trager (1968a) reported "internal cytostomes"
and a single, non-functional peripheral cytostome within
mature and immature macrogametes of fL columbae. The
internal cytostomes consisted of 2 electron dense rings,
but were located in the interior of the cell rather than in
the external pellicle. Other observations of cytostomes in
maturing macrogametes and exflagellating
mi ergametocytes have not been reported. The presence
of cytostomes in developing gametes of me 1eagridis
indicates that they persist as part of the pellicle
throughout development of the gametes. However, their
small size and the absence of associated food vacuoles
indicates that they are non-funct iona 1 .
Microgametogenes i s A number of studies of the
mi crogametogenes i s of avian haemoproteids have been
conducted. Bradbury and Trager (1968a, 1968b), Sterling
(1972) and Aikawa and Sterling (1974a) studied co1umbae
and metchnikovi. They reported the development of
axon ernes composed of 9 peripheral microtubules that


190


175
mi crogametocytes developed breaks and discontinuities
throughout its surface so that the middle layer of the
pellicle became the new, outer limiting membrane of the
parasite (Figures 71, 72). By contrast, the inner layer of
macrogametocytes remained intact (Figure 74).
Macrogametocyte nuclei were elongate and extended
across the diameter of the parasites. A prominent
nucleolus was present at 1 pole. A kinetic center composed
of a mass of amorphous, e 1 ectron-dense material was
adjacent to the nuclear envelope at the other pole (Figure
74).
Within 3 minutes after gametogenesis began,
macrogametocytes and mi ergametocytes were free of their
host cells. Both were bound by the middle layer of the
original 3-layered pellicle. The pale, electron lucent
remnants of ruptured host cell nuclei as well as
remnants of host cell membranes were often adjacent to
or surrounded free gametocytes (Figure 77). Both maturing
macrogametes and exf1 age 1 I ating mi ergametocytes contained
a single cytostome (Figures 76, 78).
Maturing macrogametes were packed densely with
ribosomes and contained numerous mitochondria and an
extensive network of smooth endoplasmic reticulum
(Figure 75). They contained an elongate nucleus with a
prominent nucleolus that extended across the center of the
macrogametocyte (Figure 75).

meleagridis Cu 1 i c i od e s crepuscularis is related
closely to knowl ton i and replaces it in northern Florida
and throughout Nortii America (Blanton and Wirth, 1979). It
is the only species of Cu I i co i des reported from Florida
that has been implicated previously as a vector of avian
haemoproteids (Bennett and Falls, 1960). However,
specimens of crepuscularis were collected rarely in
Bennett Traps and light traps at Paynes Prairie and it
is unlikely that this species plays an important role in
the natural transmission of H_^ meleagridis in Florida.
Specimens of h a ema t opo t u s were captured too
infrequently at Paynes Prairie and Fisheating Creek to
implicate this species as a vector of meleagridis at
either site. However, it is related closely to C^ edeni
(31anton and Wirth, 1979). Since the distribution of C.
eden i is limited to Florida and the Bahamas (Blanton and
Wirth, 1979), C^ haematopo tus may be an important vector in
other parts of North America where the prevalence of H.
me 1eagridis is high.
Sporogonic Stages and Experimental Transmission
The size and morphology of the ookinetes, oocysts and
sporozoites of me 1 eag ridis, as well as the relatively
short sporogonic cycle of 6 7 days, resemble the findings
for other species of Haemop rot eu s known to develop in
ceratopogonids (Falls and Wood, 1957; Khan and Falls,


255
Haemoproteus stab1er i can be distinguished from
me 1e a 3 cidis and man son i by the amoeboid margins of
mature gametocytes, their significantly fewer pigment
granules and the higher host cell nuclear displacement
ratio (White and Bennett, 1979; Greiner and Forrester,
1980).
The strong morphological similarities between
h a emop r o t e i d s of Grouse and me I e a g r i d i s may be
significant. Bennett (1960) suggested that the host
behavior, habitat and corrmunity may be more important in
determining the host range of avian haemoprote i ds than
specificity of the parasites themselves. Since the
distribution of Ruffed Grouse coincides with that of the
Wild Turkey throughout the Appalachian Mountains of the
eastern U.S., transmission of fR mansoni and rR me 1eagridis
between either host may be possible. Fall is and Bennett
(I960) reported the sporogony of man soni in species
of Cu 1icoi des from Canada. It is likely that species of
C u 1 i c o i d e s are vectors of man son i throughout the
range of its host. Studies of the experimental cross
transmission of rK me 1 e agridis and man son i between
Ruffed Grouse and turkeys are needed to determine the
validity of both species of Haemoproteus
The results of the morphometric analysis of H.
meleagridis in turkeys, the Ring-necked Pheasant and the
Chuckar demonstrate that few significant changes in

Paynes Prairie. During 96 nights of trapping between
May, 1982, and July, 1984, 34,342 specimens of
Cu 1icoides belonging to 27 species were captured in New
Jersey light traps at Sites A and B (Table 2). Cu 1 i co i des
i n s i g n i s was the most common species taken at Paynes
Prairie. However, 79% of the total catch of 18,996
individuals was captured in a single night at Site B in
November, 1982. Specimens of 9 additional species, i.e. C.

Fifteen uninfected red cells were also measured from each
host. All measurements were made from camera lucida
drawings of infected and uninfected erythrocytes that
were adjusted to the proper scale with a slide micrometer.
A discriminant analysis was performed on measurements
of mi crogametocy t e s mac r ogame t ocy t e s and infected host
cells f r om each species susceptible to fU me 1 eagr i d i s
to determine whether parasite and host cell morphology
differed in each host. Since uninfected red cells from
each host species differed in size and could have a
limiting effect on parasite size, measurements of parasites
were expressed as a percentage of the average area of
uninfected red cells from the same host. To standardize
morphological changes in host cells infected with
gametocytes, measurements from infected host cells were
expressed as a fraction of the corresponding average
measurement of uninfected host cells of the same species
(e.g. infected host cell area/average host cell area).
Before analysis, all variables were tested for normality
with the Shapiro-Wilk statistic (SAS User's Guide: Basics,
1982). Since approximately 1/4 of the variables were
non-normal, a nonparametric, nearest neighbor analysis
(k = 3) was performed (SAS User's Guide: Statistics, 1982).
Adjusted measurements of macrogametocyte length and
width, nucleus length and width, gametocyte area, nucleus
area and number of pigment granules were used as predictor
variables to generate a discriminant function based on

was still high, suggests that the inhibition of
sporogony by lower environmental temperatures may be 1
factor limiting the winter transmission of H.
me 1eag r i d i s at Paynes Prairie. During this study,
biting activity was never detected for any species of
Cu 1 ico i d e s below ISo C. Inhibition of host-seeking
activity by cool evening temperatures between January
and March may also be a major factor in restricting the
winter transmission of me 1eagridis.
The ep i zooti o 1ogy of fh meleagridis in southern
Florida has many similarities to stable, holoendemic
malaria (Wernsdorfer, 1980; Gabaldon and Ulloa, 1980). At
any given time during the year, most of the Wild Turkey
population at Fisheating Creek is infected with H.
me 1eagrid i s and has circulating gametocytes, available for
potential vectors. The high prevalence of H
me 1eagridis and the large, relatively stable vector ( =
C. edeni) population insure that a high rate of natural
transmission can occur throughout the year. In these
respects, the epizootiology of this parasite is
significantly different from other avian haemosporid i ans
that have been studied in temperate North America. In
temperate locations, populations of vectors as well as the
prevalence of avian haemosporidians are highly
seasonal. It has been documented that the spring

gametocytes of mansoni was significantly fewer than
in circumnuc1 ear gametocytes of meleagridis. They also
noted that the number of pigment granules in circumnuclear
forms of mansoni was fewer than in halteridial
forms. By contrast, the number of granules increased as
gametocytes of fh me 1eagridis became circumnuc1 ear.

Allison, 1979). Sterling and DeGiusti (1974) observed
these organelles throughout the development of oocysts
of metchnikovi and in the residual body after sporozoite
differentiation was complete. Apical organelles derived
from the ookinete of meleagridis appear to persist In
the cytoplasm throughout the life of the oocyst. There is
no evidence that any of them are reused in the formation of
sporozoites (Garnham et a 1., 1969).
The early stages of sporozoite formation in PIasmodium
are initiated by vacuolization of the peripheral oocyst
cytoplasm. This process also occurs in early oocysts of H.
metchnikov i but has not been described in any of the 3
species of Leucocytozoon that have been studied. Terzakis
et al. (1966) suggested that the vacuoles inay develop after
a local change in ionic concentration in the peripheral
cytoplasm causes water to cross the oocyst wall or,
alternatively, after the oocyst cytoplasm secretes fluid at
the oocyst periphery. In support of the latter, Sinden and
Strong (1973) described the formation of vacuoles in
oocysts of falciparum by the fusion of membranous
vesicles that originated in the oocyst cytoplasm.
Electron dense, linear thickenings appear under the
membrane soon after vacuolization begins. The vacuoles
eventually coalesce to form cytoplasmic clefts which
subdivide the oocyst cytoplasm. Sinden and Strong
(1978) found that clefts in the oocysts of falciparum

2 of these birds was fixed and processed for electron
microscopy as described later.
Data on weight, tarsometatarsal length, hematocrit,
plasma protein concentration and hemoglobin were analyzed
with the SAS general linear models procedure as a
split-plot design with subjects as main plot units and
subjects at a particular time as a subplot unit (Freund
and Littel, 1983). Treatment, subject(treatment), week
and treatmentweek were tested for each variable using
the Type 111 sum of squares. A p value of 0.05 or smaller
was considered significant. When treatment*weeks
interactions were significant, further comparisons were
made by treatment and by week with Duncan's Multiple Range
Test. A comparison of organ weights at necropsy was done
with a one-way analysis of variance using the SAS general
linear models procedure (SAS User's Guide: Statistics,
1982).
Experiment 2 Exoerythrocytic Development
A second series of experimental infections was
conducted to study the development of the early
exoerythrocytic stages and their associated host response.
Four domestic turkeys, infected as sentinel birds at
Fisheating Creek, were exposed in Bennett traps at
Fisheating Creek in May, 1985, on days 8-10 of patency.

found in certain species of birds as well as the
specificity of the parasites themselves.
Anomalies in the prevalence of columbiform
haemoproteids have led a number of other authors to
question the importance of hippoboscid flies as vectors.
Huff (1932), Hanson et al. (1957) and Greiner (1975) felt
that the low prevalence of hippoboscids on columbiform
birds at times when the incidence of Haemoproteus is high
suggested the involvement of another vector. Greiner
(1975) collected haematopotus and crepuscularis
feeding on Mourning Doves, Zenaida macroura, in Nebraska
during periods of active transmission of Haemop roteus
He hypothesized that they may play important roles as
vectors of macea 1 1 umi and H^ sacharovi. By contrast,
other workers have found a close correlation between the
seasonal occurrence of co1umbae and its hippoboscid
vector, Pseudo 1ynchi a caar iensis, in populations of Rock
Doves, Co 1umba 1 ivia in Michigan (Klei and DeGiusti,
1975). Ayala et al. (1977) found large numbers of
Microlynchia p u si 1 1 a and S ti 1 borne topa podos t y 1 a on
Columbian Eared Doves, Zenaida auriculata, and felt that
these hippoboscids could account alone for the high levels
of transmission of fU macea 11umi they observed throughout
the year. Unfortunately, critical experiments to test
whether columbiform haemoproteids can be transmitted by
species of Cu 1 icoi des have not been done.

INTRODUCTION
The protozoan genus Haemopcoteus is composed of over
130 different species of blood and tissue parasites of
birds and some reptiles (Levine and Campbell, 1971; Bennett
et al., 1982). Since the discovery of these organisms
by Danilewsky (1889) nearly a century ago, little beyond
the basic a 1 pha-taxonomy of this group has been studied.
This is primarily because laboratory studies of these
species are difficult to accomplish. Transmission of
avian haemoproteids by blood inoculation is rarely
successful because the parasites do not undergo asexual
schizogony in circulating erythrocytes. Attempts by a
number of workers to transmit the parasites using tissue
homogenates or transplants containing the exoerythrocyt ic
stages have occasionally succeeded, but have not been
reliable enough for practical use (Gondor, 1915; O'Roke,
1930; Coatney, 1933; Lastra and Coatney, 1950; Bierer
et al., 1959).
Another major obstacle to the study of this genus
has been the absence of a convenient laboratory model.
Most studies of the life cycle, fine structure and
1


221
been made o£ any of the avian species of P1 a smod i um,
Leucocytozoon o r Haeinopcoteus. Those that have been
conducted have relied primarily on repeated surveys of the
host population by blood smears to monitor the
prevalence of the parasites under study (Herman, 1938;
Herman et al., 1954; Janovy, 1966; Bennett and Falls,
1960; K1ei and DeGiusti, 1975; Greiner, 1975). While this
procedure has the advantage of monitoring changes directly
in the host population, it is limited by the
difficulties and biases inherent in capturing wild birds
and diagnosing latent and low intensities of infection. In
addition, the precise time when transmission of a blood
parasite begins and its relationship to vector populations
may be difficult to establish.
Chernin (1952) was one of the first to overcome these
problems by using domestic sentinel ducks to monitor
natural transmission of Leucocytozoon simondi Later
workers, including Fa 11 is and Wood (1957), Fa 11 is and
3ennett (1966) and Herman and Bennett (1976), refined these
techniques in more extensive studies of L^ s imond i and
applied them to the study of Haemoproteus ne11ionis. In
conjuction with surveys of wild hosts, the use of sentinel
birds provides a powerful tool for studying the dynamics of
natural transmission. By decreasing the length of time
sentinels are exposed, it is possible to measure the onset
of transmission to within days. Sentinel studies are

Pathogen icity
Since the first detailed studies of Haemoproteus
in the early part of this century, many authors have
reported instances where this organism appeared to
debilitate the host. Acton and Knowles (1914), Ad i e
(1924), Coatney (1933) and Markus and Oosthuizen (1972)
each observed a pigeon, heavily infected with columbae,
that seemed weak, anemic and with a poor appetite.
Wasielewski and WUlker (1918) reported 6 fatal infections
of Haemoproteus in the thousand they examined and Becker
et al. (1956) attributed the enlarged, purplish livers
they found in domestic pigeon squabs to infections by
H. sacharovi Many workers have speculated that H.
co1umbae and other avian haemoproteids must be pathogenic
to some extent because peak parasitemias may involve half
of the circulating erythrocytes (Levine, 1961; Garnham,
1966). Yet, there have been no experimental attempts
to measure pathological changes in infected birds, even
among columbiform hosts that can be infected fairly easily
in the laboratory.
Only 1 study has attempted to document the
pathogenicity of Haemoproteus in detail. O'Roke (1930)
found that California Quail, Lopho r tyx cal¡fornica,
infected with fL lophor tyx had variable amounts of pigment
deposited in their lungs, testes, spleens and livers.

by macrophages and giant cells. Regenerating muscle fibers
were corrmon (Figure 55).
Small schizonts with blue-gray cytoplasm and numerous,
irregularly shaped black nuclei were present in
capillaries. The schizonts were sausage shaped, with an
irregular outline and ranged from 5 to 8 um in diameter up
to 28 um in length (Figures 45, 46). Most schizonts
extended only as far as 2 to 3, 4 um serial sections. Some
schizonts were found adjacent to or within the muscle
lesions, although most showed no evidence of an associated
host response.
Hepatocellular atrophy and necrosis were evident in
sections of liver from the infected bird. Numerous large,
10 20 um, intracellular vacuoles were scattered
throughout the tissue. The spleen was enlarged, but
otherwise unremarkable. Other tissues from the infected
and control bird were unremarkable.
El even days. At 11 days post-infection, infected
birds continued to improve. Regenerating muscle fibers,
often surrounded by a monocytic infiltrate, were common in
sections of skeletal muscle from I infected bird. Necrotic
areas containing giant cells and macrophages were rare.
Perivascular nodular infiltrates composed of monocytes and
some heterophils were present. Other tissues from the
infected and control bird were unremarkable.

effects were tested with a Duncan's Multiple Range Test.
When fewer than 3 species were compared, a T-test was
used (SAS User's Guide: Basics, 1982).
A pair of New Jersey light traps, modified as
described earlier and baited with a paper envelope
containing 2-3 kg of dry ice, was operated continuously
for 24-36 hours at Fisheating Creek during the March,
April and May, 1983, collecting trips. One trap was
suspended 1 meter above the ground and the second, 7 meters
above it, in the middle level of the canopy. Both traps
were operated without light bulbs to minimize diurnal
and nocturnal differences in their attractiveness to biting
arthropods. Sample bottles from each trap were changed
every 2 hours between 1700 and 0900 hours and every 4
hours between 0900 and 1700 hours. Dry ice was replenished
every 4 hours. Data were plotted by as the average number
of individuals of each species of Cu 1 icoi des captured
per hour of trap time for each sampling period.
Experimental Infections
To test the ability of individuals of various species
of Cu 1 icoide s to support development of me 1eagrid i s ,
infected sentinel turkeys were exposed in the Bennett
trap. Engorged flies were dissected at daily intervals
up to 9 days after a blood meal was taken in 0.85 % (w/v)

on the outer wall of the midguts (Figures 2, 3, 4).
Representatives of 5 species of Cu 1 icoi des, i.e. edeni,
C. arboricola, C. h a ema t opo t u s, C. hinma ni and C.
knowltoni, were able to support complete development of H.
meleagridis and had mature oocysts, packed with
sporozoites, and salivary glands with numerous slender
sporozoites by 6 to 7 days after they had taken blood meals
(Table 6) (Figures 4, 6). Cu 1 icoi des edeni was the
most susceptible species. Almost 2/3 of the engorged
specimens of e d e n i developed salivary gland
infections (Table 6). Four oocysts from edeni were
subspherical and measured 14-16.5 um in length (Mean =
15.4, SD = 1.11) and 12-16.5 um in width (Mean = 14.1, SD =
1.84). Oocysts contained from 50-100 elongate sporozoites
that were aligned parallel to one another. A small,
eccentric residua! body composed, in part, of golden-brown
pigment granules was present in each oocyst (Figure 4).
Salivary gland sporozoites were within secretory cells
of the single major lobe that composed each of the 2 glands
(Figure 5). In fresh preparations, they often flexed
and twisted within the salivary gland. Fifteen
Gi ems a-stained sporozoites from 1 specimen of eden i
measured 9.25-12.5 um in length (Mean = 11.1, SD = 0.8) and
0.5-1.0 um in width (Mean = 0.69, SD = 0.17). The nucleus
was located approximately 1/3 of the total length from one

pheasant scores were correctly classified as pheasant
(Table 23).
Fine Structure
Mature Gainetocytes
Mi ergametocytes and macrogametocytes were bound by a
pellicle composed of 3 unit membranes. The innermost
membrane was thicker and more osmiophilic than the outer 2
(Figures 66, 67). Other common organelles included a
nucleus bounded by 2 unit membranes, mitochondria with
tubular cristae and food vacuoles that contained
osmiophilic masses of pigment (Figures 66, 67). Both
macrogametocytes and microgametocytes had granular
nucleoplasm with an electron density similar to the
cytoplasm (Figures 66, 67). Macrogametocytes had an
electron-dense nucleolus (Figure 67).
Mature mactogametocytes were packed with numerous
ribosomes that gave the cytoplasm a granular appearance
(Figure 67). By contrast, mature microgametocytes
contained fewer ribosomes and had a paler, more
amorphous cytoplasm (Figure 66). Rough endoplasmic
reticulum and a Golgi apparatus were not observed.
However, gametocytes had a network of smooth endoplasmic
reticulum that extended throughout the cytoplasm. In


259
moderately electron dense material within the dilated
cisternae o£ the endoplasmic reticulum (Sterling and
Aikawa, 1973; Bradbury and Roberts, 1970). Desser et
al. (1970b) suggested that it was the precursor to the
crystalloid material observed in ookinetes, oocysts and
sporozoites of si mo n di The continuity between the
endoplasmic reticulum and the inner, osmiophilic layer
of the pellicle of macrogametocytes of me 1eagridis,
indicates that this material may also play some role in the
changes in pellicular structure that occur prior to
their release from the host cell. Other workers have
suggested that the osmiophilic bodies may have a similar
function and aid in dissolving the host cell membrane
during gametogenesis (Aikawa et al., 1969; Rudzinska and
Trager, 1968).
Gametogenesis
Early changes in the fine structure of gametocytes of
H me Iearidis during the initial stages of gametocyte
maturation were identical to changes observed in
maturing gametocytes of co 1 umbae metchn i kov i and
ve 1ans (Bradbury and Trager, 1968a; 3radbury and Trager,
1968b; Sterling, 1972; Aikawa and Sterling, 1974a; Desser,
1972a). In all species studied to date, the gametocytes
round-up within their host cells. Soon afterward, the
outer layer of the pellicle detaches from the outer surface

a mixed inflammatory infiltrate composed of macrophages,
heterophils, giant cells and red blood cells (Figures
23, 28). They were frequently invaded by macrophages
and heterophils. Macrophages were often adjacent to the
outer wall of ruptured mega 1 os ch i zon t s and occasionally
were seen phagocytizing merozoites that had been liberated
(Figures 24, 25). Giant cells commonly were found adjacent
to intact and degenerating cysts (Figures 23, 25). Muscle
fibers adjacent to the cysts were swollen, rounded and
hyaline and often contained small, gray to dark blue
granules which were oriented occasionally into parallel
lines (Figures 26, 27). Dark blue calcium deposits,
visible with hematoxylin and eosin as well as with von
Kossa's calcium stain, occupied much of the cytoplasm of
muscle fibers adjacent to more degenerate cysts (Figures
26, 27).
Capillaries and venules adjacent to or near
degenerating mega 1oschizonts were often occluded partially
or completely by thrombi composed of pink staining,
fibrinous material (Figure 29). Giant cells often
surrounded thrombi or were adjacent to occluded vessels.
Liver and spleen sections from the 2 birds that
died spontaneously at 22 DPI, 5 days after gametocytes
first appeared in circulating red cells, had numerous
golden yellow pigment deposits in the cytoplasm of
macrophages (Figure 30). The 2 birds that died on 19

lower prevalence o£ sporozoites in naturally infected C.
eden i could be a reflection of the smaller Wild Turkey
population at Paynes Prairie and the lower prevalence of
available gametocytes for potential vectors.
Studies of ? 1 a sinod i urn v i vax and P^ falciparum have
shown that development of the sporogonic stages in
mosquitoes is inhibited completely below temperatures of 15
- 20o q (Russell, 1959; Wernsdorfer, 1980). The
temperature dependent development of the sporogonic stages
is believed to be the major factor limiting the
temperate distribution of P^ vivax and P^ falciparum to
areas within the 20o C summer isotherm (Wernsdorfer,
1980). Morii et al. (1965) observed a similar temperature
dependence in the development of the sporogonic stages
of caul 1 e r y i Development of sporozoites in C.
ci rcumscr ip tus and arakawae was inhibited at
temperatures below 15 20o C. They suggested that
lower environmental temperatures may be an important factor
in the lower prevalences of caul 1e r yi in Japanese
poultry during the autumn.
Average monthly temperatures at Paynes Prairie and
Fisheating Creek are similar between May and October,
but range from 3 6o C cooler at Paynes Prairie between
November and April (Figure 17). The absence of
transmission of me 1eagr i d i s during February, March
and April, 1983 at Site A, when biting activity of Ch edeni

mega 1 oschizonts were not found (Farmer, 1965). Since
sequential observations of the development of g a r n h ami,
H, de s s e r i and the forms described by Farmer (1965) have
not been made, the significance of cytomere development in
mega 1 oschizonts of H^ me 1eagr i d i s cannot be determined.
The progressive formation of smaller and smaller cytomeres
is most similar to that described for mega 1oschizonts of
leucocytozoon (Huff, 1942; Khan and Falls, 1970).
However, final merozoite formation in species of
Le ucocy tozoon occurs by fragmentation of the cytomere
cytoplasm rather than by bud formation (Desser, 1970).
Cytomere formation has not been confirmed in other
species of Haemoproteus. Aragao (1908) described the
segmentation of mu 11inuc1eated schizonts of Ih columbae in
lung tissue into numerous uninucleate masses that underwent
further nuclear division and growth. Wenyon (1926) termed
these masses cytomeres. Other studies have not observed
this process during the exoerythrocytic development of
H co1umbae (Ahmed and Mohammed, 1977; Mohammed, 1965;
Bradbury and Gallucci, 1971). U1trastructura 1 studies
by Bradbury and Gallucci (1972) revealed that
mu 11inucleated masses of cytoplasm developed as clefts and
projections from the parent schizont. Since these did not
develop from discrete, uninucleate masses and did not
always detach from the parent body, Bradbury and
Gallucci (1972) used the term "pseudo-cytomere" as used by


6
exoerythrocytic schizonts that lack cytomeres, as is true
o£ the species transmitted by hippoboscid flies.
The proposed revisions in the classification have
not found wide acceptance because the gametocytes (i.e. the
main diagnostic stage) of each group cannot be
distinguished. While the revision may be a more accurate
reflection of phylogenetic relationships, the proposed
reclassification is speculative and essentially
nonfunctional at our current level of understanding.
Until the life cycles of more species are studied, most
workers have, by groups to subgeneric status.
Epizooti o 1ogy
Since the vectors of most species of Haemoproteus
are unknown, fundamental questions concerning their
epi zooti o 1ogy host specificity and pathogenicity have
remained unanswered. Only a few studies have examined
the seasonal transmission and role that various biting
arthropods may play in the epi zooti o 1ogy of these
parasites. In a study of Haemop roteus in insular
Newfoundland, Bennett and Coombs (1975) did not find
ookinetes, oocysts or sporozoites in 101 Ornithornyia

Glades County, at Fisheating Creek (Powell, 1967; L.E.
Williams, pers. comm.). In addition, Wild Turkeys from
northern Florida have a lower prevalence of me 1eagridis
(Forrester et al., 1974). Since many species of Cu 1 icoi des
have flight ranges of less than 1 km (Kettle, 1977),
transmission of me 1eagridis at Paynes Prairie may be
very local and dependent on the daily movements of Wild
Turkeys and their selection of roosting sites for the
night. A number of studies have shown that Wild Turkeys
maintain home ranges of from 400 1500 hectares in the
southeastern U.S. and, depending on the season, often move
in regular patterns and reuse favorite roosting sites
(Schorger, 1966; Bowman et al., 1979). Since Bennett trap
collections and light trap collections of C^ edeni were of
comparable sizes at Sites A and B, the higher
prevalences of transmission that were observed at Site
B, their earlier peaks and their longer seasonal
duration may have been due to greater use of the area by
Wild Turkeys. Several authors have reported that Wild
Turkeys prefer open woodland, pastures and old fields
for foraging and nesting (Stoddard, 1963; Lewis, 1964).
Since Site 3 was located in an ecotone between an open
field and the deciduous forest, it may have been more
attractive to Wild Turkeys and received greater use. As a
result, potential vectors of me 1 eag r i d i s would be
more likely to become infected with the parasite. The

between the 2 study areas in northern and southern Florida
were evident. Transmission of me 1 eagr i d i s occurred at a
lower prevalence at Paynes Prairie than it did at
Fisheating Creek and was not continuous throughout the year
(Figures 13, 14, 18). It ceased during the cooler
winter months between January and April, when average
monthly temperatures were below 60o ancj wa s often
interrupted by periods of 2 or 4 weeks at each of the 2
study sites during the warmer months of the year. In
addition, Site A and Site 3 at Paynes Prairie had
significant differences in the time of onset of
transmission in the spring, the time when major and
minor peaks occurred and the time when transmission ceased
in the winter (Figures 13, 14). Unlike the collections at
Fisheating Creek, collections of specimens of O edeni were
not closely correlated with peaks in transmission of H.
me I eagridis at Paynes Prairie (Figures 13, 14).
Censuses of the /ild Turkey population in Florida over
the past 30 years have shown dramatic increases throughout
the state (Powell, 1967). Surveys have consistently shown
that the population in Alachua County, where Paynes Prairie
is located, is less than 1/10 as large as it is in

The 4 birds had a number of secondary lesions
unrelated to the muscle cysts. One bird had a large white
nodule, approximately 5 mm in diameter, that occupied
the posterior portion of 1 lung. Another bird had
thickened air sacs with scattered white plaques that
were about 5 nrn in diameter. In all 4 birds, portions of
the gut were swollen and flaccid and the mucosa had
multifocal areas of discoloration. Reddish or black, tarry
mucoid material was occasionally present in the jejunum. A
bacterial culture from 1 bird was positive for
Salmone11 a enteridit i s Group 3.
A randomly selected bird in the control group was

cysts observed in the birds that died may have resulted
from contamination with Sarcocystis. Tissue cysts were not
evident in any skeletal muscles of this bird. All
organs and tissues were grossly normal.

of PI asinod i urn have shown that mosquitoes may inoculate only
a small percentage of their total number of salivary gland
sporozoites when they take a blood meal (Vanderberg,
1977). Similar studies have not been done with
ceratopogonids. However, since the prevalence of H.
me 1eagridis approaches 2% of the population of nulliparous
C. edeni at Fisheating Creek and since a bird may be bitten
by several thousand specimens of Cu I i coi des in a single
night, it is possible that intensities of natural infection
comparable to the low dose may be reached over a period of
several weeks. Additional research on the effects of
repeated, low level exposure of me 1eag ridis to
pen-reared Wild Turkeys would be helpful in determining the
possible significance of this parasite in the Wild
Turkey population.
Hos t Spec if i city
The present taxonomy of avian species of Haemoproteus
is based on the limited experimental evidence that suggests
that some species are specific to host family (Bennett
et al., 1982; Bennett et al., 1972). While this taxonomic
scheme provides a functional framework for dealing with the

Pathogen icity
Experiment 1 Pathology
Gross observations spontaneous deaths. As early as
7 days post-infeetion (DPI) a number of subtle, behavioral
changes became evident among poults within the high dose
group. The birds stood with slightly drooped wings,
ruffled feathers and partially or completely closed eyes
and were less active than birds belonging to either the low
dose or control groups. Between 7 and 14 DPI, birds in the
high dose group developed a mild diarrhea which produced a
"pasty" vent. Their physical condition continued to
deteriorate and by 15 DPI, most birds exhibited lameness in
1 or both legs and severe depression. Most were emaciated,
dehydrated and anorexic.
On days 19, 20 and 22 DPI, 4 birds (33%) in the
high dose group died. The deaths occurred from 2 to 5 days
following the appearance of young gametocytes in the
peripheral circulation. At necropsy, the skeletal muscles
contained numerous fusiform, white cysts, up to 1.0 nm
in length and 0.5 mm in diameter. They were scattered
diffusely throughout the skeletal muscles, but were most
corrmon in the pectoral muscles. All were oriented parallel
to the muscle fibers. From 30 to 50% of the cysts were
discolored red by hemorrhage (Figure 21).


275
Mature merozoi tes of me 1 e a 3 rid i s are very
similar to merozoites of other haemosporidian
parasites. All have a specialized anterior end containing
3 polar rings, a pair of electron dense rhoptries and small
micronemes (Aikawa and Sterling, 1974b). Cytostomes
have been reported in merozoites of P1 a smodiurn and
Haernop roteus but have not been observed in merozoites
of species of Leucocytozoon (Aikawa and Sterling, 1974b).
They were not observed in merozoites of me 1eagridis, but
observations are limited. Other organelles, including the
nucleus, mitochondria and pellicle, were similar to
merozoites of other haemosporidian parasites (Aikawa and
Sterling, 1974b).
The large, e1ectron-1ucent vacuoles observed in mature
merozoites of me 1e a %ridis have not been reported from
other haemosporidian merozoites (Figures 90, 91). The
vacuole persists during development of the early
gametocytes and is clearly visible in Giemsa-stained blood
films. It disappears by the time gametocytes reach
maturity. The function and origin of this organelle are
unknown.

body weight at necropsy) were measured. Representative
pieces of pectoral muscle, liver, spleen, heart, lung,
brain, proveniriculus, gizzard, duodenum, pancreas, ileum,
jejunum, cecum, kidney and bone marrow taken from the
femur were fixed in 10% buffered formalin. The 3 lightest
birds from each group were selected and all representative
tissues from each were dehydrated in ethanol or isopropyl
alcohol, cleared in toluene for 2 hours, embedded in
paraplast, sectioned at 5 um and stained with hematoxylin
and eosin. Representative tissues from birds that died
prior to the end of the experiment were fixed in 10%
buffered formalin and Carnoy's fixative, dehydrated,
cleared, sectioned and stained as above. Selected serial
sections of skeletal muscle were stained for calcium with

originated from endoplasmic reticulum scattered in the
cytoplasm and from peripheral vacuolization of the oocyst.
Clefts originating from the endoplasmic reticulum were
covered on their cytoplasmic face by additional 2-layered
membranous sacs. These were lined on their innermost face
by a thin amorphous electron-dense coating analogous to the
electron, linear thickenings described under the plasma
membrane of other species.
As subdivision of the cytoplasm continues, budding
sporozoites develop under the electron dense thickenings.
Apical organelles including polar rings, micronemes and
subpe 11 icu1 ar microtubules differentiate as the sporozoites
bud from the sporoblast body. In contrast to
P 1 a s modiurn, metchnikovi does not undergo cleft
formation. Instead, budding sporozoites develop around the
periphery of the central sporoblast body (Sterling and
DeGius ti, 1974).
The differentiation of early oocysts of Leucocytozoon
occurs without vacuolization and cleft formation. As
sporozoites bud from electron dense thickenings under
the peripheral plasma membrane, the sporoblast body slowly
contracts (Desser and Wright, 1968; Desser, 1972c; Wong and
Desser, 1976; Desser and Allison, 1979). Sporozoite
differentiation and budding resembles P1 a smodiurn.
Leucocytozoon oocysts are smaller and develop fewer
sporozoites than PI asmodium oocysts. The cleft formation,

Tetraonidae, Me 1eagrididae and Numididae were lowered to
subfamily status and the quail were separated from the
pheasants and elevated to form the subfamily
Odontophorinae.
Prior to the major taxonomic revisions in the Order
Galliformes, results of the host specificity experiment
would have invalidated assumptions about the host
specificity of avian haemoproteids and provided evidence
that the current taxonomy of the genus Haemoproteus may be
flawed. Instead, the finding that rL me 1eagridis can be
transmitted experimentally between Turkeys (subfamily
Me 1 eagridinae), Chuckars (subfamily Phasianinae, tribe
Perdicini) and Ring-necked Pheasants (subfamily
Phasianinae, tribe Phasianini), does not invalidate the
basic assumptions of current haemoproteid taxonomy.
Unfortunately, a true test of the taxonomic scheme was not
conducted since avian hosts outside of the current
Phasianid family were not included in the experiment.
However, the conflicting interpretations, dependent on host
classification, illustrate the dangers inherent in
basing the taxonomy of 1 unrelated group of organisms on
that of another.
The results of the host specificity experiment provide
some support for the current revisions within the Order
Galliformes. Nolan et al. (1975) found that rabbit

When comparisons o£ average hematocrits were made by group,
the same trends were evident in each group, indicating that
significant differences within groups may be related to the
age of the birds (Figure 39).
Deposition of pigment in macrophages of the spleen,
liver and lungs began at approximately 22 DPI, when
maturing erythrocytic gametocytes began to develop
detectable pigment granules. The clearance of parasitized
erythrocytes from the circulation was probably accomplished
by phagocytic activity of these cells, as has been
described in infections of PIasmodi um (Taliaferro, 1941).
Most pigment was deposited in the spleen, where the
major elimination of the parasite population from the
peripheral circulation occurs (Taliaferro, 1941).
Follicular hyperplasia and enlargement of the spleen,
characteristic of other species of Haemopro t eu s and
P1 asmodium, also occurred (Becker et al, 1956; Russell
et al, 1943; Taliaferro, 1941).
The significant drop in plasma protein levels in
the low dose and big!) dose birds at 1 week
post-infection may have been related to the increase in
vascular permeability that accompanies acute
inflammatory responses (Figure 40) (Smith et al.,
1972). Mahrt and Payer (1975) did not find significant
changes in total serum protein during experimental
infections of calves with Saccocys tis fusiformi s. However,


214
The total numbers of eden i and h i nina n i collected
in Bennett traps at Paynes Prairie and Fisheating Creek
were considerably larger than collections of any of the
other 10 species. While individuals of both species
were capable of supporting complete development of the
sporogonic stages of me 1 e a g r i d i s the greater
susceptibility of specimens of O edeni and their
preponderance in Bennett trap collections throughout the
year indicate that this species is the primary vector of H.
me 1e a g ridis in Florida.
Specimens of arbor icoI a made up approximately 8% of
the collections from Bennett and New Jersey traps at Paynes
Prairie. This species may be comnon enough to play a minor
role in the transmission of me 1 e a g r i d i s in northern
Florida. However, total numbers captured at Fisheating
Creek were insignificant when compared to the large numbers
of C^ eden i and C^ h i nman i that were taken at the same
time.
Cu 1 icoi des knowltoni is found rarely north of central
Florida and specimens were not captured at Paynes Prairie.
Individuals of this species composed a small fraction
(1.4%) of the Bennett Trap catch at Fisheating Creek,
but were taken more commonly in New Jersey light traps.
This discrepancy suggests that individuals of this species
use other hosts as a blood source and may not play a
significant role in the epizootiology of H_^


cause vascular congestion and edema by mechanical
interference with the circulation. In spite of the large
number of exoerythrocytic parasites, infected muscovy
ducks never developed patent infections with erythrocytic
gametocytes. Yet, inoculation of blood from white Pekin
ducks with patent ne11ionis infections reproduced the
disease in uninfected muscovy ducks. Julian and Galt
suggested that transmission occurred because inoculated
blood contained a few exoerythrocyt ic merozoites Later
work by Sibley and Werner (1984) was unable to confirm
the observations made by Julian and Galt ( 1980). They
succeeded in transmitting FU ne 11 ionis to muscovy ducks
using sporozoites from pools of naturally infected C.
downesi. They failed to observe any pathological effects
from the Haemoproteus infections. Julian et al. (1985)
have since identified the pathogenic organism as an
intracellular bacterium.
Hos t Spec ificit y
The present classification of avian haemoproteids
separates species with morphologically similar gametocytes
by host family. Since morphologically identical species
may occur in the same habitat where their hosts are exposed
to the same vectors, it is possible that many species

Schizonts were not detected in skeletal muscle or
other tissues in the infected bird.
Fourteen days. By 14 days post-infection, infected
birds were smaller than controls, but were otherwise
indistinguishable. Regenerated muscle fibers were
common in sections of skeletal muscle from 1 infected
bird. The regenerated areas occasionally contained
remnants of necrotic fibers that were surrounded by a
monocytic infiltrate. Perivascular, nodular infiltrates
composed of monocytes were present.
Schizonts ranged from 20 to 32 um in diameter and
developed both within and between muscle fibers (Figures
47, 48, 49). They were surrounded by a thick, hyaline wall
and were packed with dark blue, granular cytomeres that
ranged from 2 to 3 um in diameter. Schizonts were elongate
and extended as far as 90 um along the long axis of the
muscle fibers. Several schizonts were densely packed with
dark-staining granules (Figure 47). Others were surrounded
by macrophages (Figure 49).
Sections of heart from the infected bird had focal
areas of mononuclear infiltrates. Other tissues from
the infected and the control bird were unremarkable.
Seventeen days At 17 days post-infection,
pectoral muscle from the last infected bird contained a few


32
tubes were mixed with a vortex mixer and allowed to stand
for several hours. Absorbence was measured
spectrophotometrica11y at 540 nm. Hemoglobin concentration
for each paired sample was determined with a standard
measured at the same time (Cyanomethemoglobin Standard,
Fisher Scientific). Average values for each paired sample
were used in the statistical analysis.
The second hematocrit tube was spun for 5 minutes
in a microhematocrit centrifuge. The packed cell volume
(PCV) was measured and a drop of plasma was placed in
a refractometer to determine the plasma protein
concent rat ion.
Blood smears were prepared from all birds 3 times
per week as described earlier. Parasitemias were
determined by counting the number of gametocytes per 10,000
red blood cells. The number of red cells in each of 5
oil immersion fields behind the leading "tongue" of the
smear were counted. The average number of red cells per
field was determined and the number of fields needed to
scan 10,000 red cells was calculated.
At 4 weeks post-infection and again at the end of
the experiment, fecal samples were collected from each
compartment. Flotations were performed on the samples
with Sheather's sugar solution to detect coccidian
oocysts. At 4 weeks post-infection cloacal swabs were
prepared from 3-5 randomly selected birds in each

parasite morphology occurred. The discriminant analysis of
parasite and host cell variables was unable to correctly
classify scores from nacrogametocytes, mi ergametocytes and
host cells infected with ¡nacrogametocytes to their
respective host species. This indicates that the
garnetocytes of mel eagr i d i s and their associated changes
in host cells were essentially identical in each of the
3 host species. The discriminant analysis was more
successful in classifying host cells infected with
mi crogametocytes and correctly identified 100% of the
Ring-necked Pheasant scores. This was probably related to
the much greater lateral displacement of the host cell
nucleus that occurred in host cells of this species.
Morphometric studies of species of Leucocytozoon have
also failed to show significant morphological variation in
garnetocytes of a single species in different species of
hosts (3ennett and Campbell, 1975; Greiner and ivocan,
1977). These findings led Bennett and Campbell (1975)
to synonymize a number of mo rphologically similar
species reported from the same host family. These
synonymies were based on experimental evidence that most
species of Leucocy tozoon are specific to host family and
illustrate the importance of studies of
cross-transmission. Bennett and Campbell (1975) found that
garnetocytes of d ub r e u i 1 i L. fringillinarum and the
round garnetocytes of si mo n di could not be separated

suggested that zygotic rather than post-zygotic ineiosis had
occur red.
Attempts to trace division of the nucleus during
differentiation of PIasmodiu n oocysts have been only partly
successful. This is largely because of the difficulty
in obtaining and interpreting serial sections through
the complex, multidigitate form of the nucleus. A
number of investigators have found that nuclear division
proceeds without the disappearance of the nuclear
membrane. Electron dense masses termed centrioiar plaques
(Howells and Davies, 1971), kinetic centers (Schrevel et
al., 1977) and spindle pole bodies (Kubai, 1975) appear in
cup-like invaginations of the nuclear envelope. These are
duplicated throughout the nuclear envelope and direct a
series of multiple, asynchronous mitotic divisions.
Each kinetic center is linked with another by a thin
band of dense material. Radiating from each are spindle
microtubules of different lengths. The shorter ones appear
to be attached to electron dense kinetochores. These
are believed to be attached to individual chromosomes
(Schrevel et al., 1977). Schrevel et al. (1977) counted 8
kinetochores at each halfspindle pole, suggesting that the
haploid chromosome number in P^ her ;he i may be as few as
4. Canning and Sinden (1973) estimated that the haploid
number could be as few as 5 and possibly as high as 10 from
kinetochore counts on their micrographs of P^ berghei.

sporozoites in 13.8% of 184 Cu 1 icoi des s ti 1obezziodes
captured in bird baited traps and suggested that it was
the sole vector. Later work by Greiner et al. (1978)
demonstrated that a number of other ornithophi 1 i c
Cu 1 icoide s were present in their study area. It is
possible that they may also contribute to transmission
of the paras i tes.
Bennett and Fa I 1 is ( 1960) found high prevalences
and high parasitemias of Haemoprot eus in resident and
migratory birds examined in June and July in Algonquin
Park, Canada, when Cu 1 icoi des populations were high.
A preponderance of low level, chronic infections occurred
during August and September when hippoboscids were
abundant. Bennett (1960) captured 6 different species
of Cu 1 icoi des with traps baited with woodland and water
birds in the same area and noted differences in
distribution of the flies by habitat. Some species, i.e.
C. s ti 1obezziodes C. sph agnumen sis, C. crepuscularis
and haematopotus, preferred the middle levels of the
forest canopy, while others, i.e. O downesi, preferred
the lake shore. Bennett (1960) also found differences
when comparisons were made by host. Cu 1 icoide s d own e s i
preferred ducks and herons to woodland birds as a blood
source. He noted that both of these characteristics may
be important in determining the types of blood parasites

physiology of avian haemoproteids have been limited to
the few species that infect columbiformes, i.e. H.
co1umbae, H. sacha covi, H. macea 11umi and fK pa 1umbi s .
Pigeons and doves are relatively inexpensive, easy to
breed in captivity and can produce a reliable, although
limited, supply of uninfected young for experimental work.
The early discovery that at least 4 different species
of ectopar a s i tic hippoboscid flies could transmit H.
co1umbae (Sergent and Sergent, 1906; Aragao, 1908, 1916;
Gondor, 1915) led to a number of classical studies of
its life cycle during the first half of this century (Acton
and Knowles, 1914; Adie, 1915, 1925; Coatney, 1933).
Further work has been dampened by the difficulty in rearing
hippoboscids in captivity and harvesting large numbers
of sporozoites for experimental infections.
With the discovery that ceratopogonids in the genus
Cu 1 icoi des could support development of the sporogonic
stages of Haemop ro teu s ne 11ion i s from wild anatids, a
potential laboratory model using domestic ducks became
available (Falls and Wood, 1957). Unfortunately,
Cu 1 icoi des are notoriously difficult to colonize and less
available than hippoboscids for experimental work. Mi 1tgen
et al. (1981) were able to obtain sporozoites of desseri
from Blossom-Headed Parakeets, Psi11 acu 1 a roseata, from
Southeast Asia by exposing infected birds to a colony

Epizooti o 1ogy
Sentinel Study
Between 9 May, 1 982, and 15 July, 1984, groups of
3, 2-week-old, Broad-breasted white domestic turkey poults
were exposed for 2-week periods in sentinel cages placed
at 2 sites at Paynes Prairie State Preserve 2 km SSE of
Gainesville, Florida. One site (A) was located in a mixed,
deciduous forest and had 2 sentinel cages, 1 at ground
level and a second suspended from a rope hoist 7 m above
the first. The second site (B) was approximately 1 km
from the first and was located in an ecotone between the
forest and an open field. At the second site, a single
cage was placed on the ground in a small grove of oak
trees, approximately 30 m from the edge of the main
forest. All 3 sentinel cages were screened with 2 layers
of 1.3 cm hardware cloth to allow entry of vectors and
to restrict entry of large predators. Sentinel turkeys
were fed a high protein, commercial, unmedicated game
bird chow ad libitum and watered regularly throughout
each 2-week sentinel period. At the end of the 2-week
sentinel period, the birds were moved in a vector-proof

was reached.


the most important vector in Florida. Conclusions were
based on the high susceptibility o Cu 1 i co i des eden i to the
parasite, its preponderance in biting collections, its
activity and vertical distribution in the forest canopy and
on isolations of Haemoproteus me Ieagr i d i s from naturally
infected specimens. Results of a concurrent sentinel study
indicated that transmission of the parasite occurred
year-round in southern Florida. The prevalence of
transmission in the more temperate climate of northern
Florida was lower, more variable and limited to between
April and December.
Sporozoite-induced experimental infections produced a
moderate to severe myositis in young domestic turkeys
and had significant effects on their growth and weight
gain. Pathological effects were associated with the
development of mega I osch i zonts in skeletal and cardiac
muscle. Mega 1oschizonts had a thick, hyaline wall, were
aseptate and were morphologically similar to those of
Haemoproteus des s eri and Ac throcys tis ga11i.
At least 2 generations of schizogony occurred.
First-generation schizonts matured between 5 and 8 days
post-infection and produced elongate merozoites. Second-
generation mega 1oschizonts developed between 8 and 17 days
post-infect i on and yielded spherical merozoites that
developed to form erythrocytic gametocytes.

1971; Tanner and Turner, 1974). In general, ornithophi 1ic
species were active in the forest canopy, where avian hosts
are presumably more available. Tanner and Turner (1974)
suggested that species of Cu 1 ic oid e s may occupy a
particular vertical stratum and search for a suitable host
within that stratum, regardless of whether it is a bird or
a mamna 1 .
Wild Turkeys normally roost at night in the middle
levels of the forest canopy (Schorger, 1966) and typically
fly to a suitable branch at sunset when individuals of
C. eden i C. arbor ico1 a and knowlton i are becoming
active. The significantly higher levels of transmission of
H. me 1e a a ridis that occurred to sentinel birds exposed
in the canopy at Paynes Prairie and Fisheating Creek
(Forrester, unpublished data) supports the evidence that
individuals of 1 or more of these species serve as vectors
of the parasite. Since total numbers of h i nman i
captured in Bennett traps and suction traps were
greatest before Wild Turkeys roost for the night and, since
this species was never captured in Bennett traps or suction
traps operated near the ground, it may play only a minor
role in the epi zooti o Iogy of me 1eagridis.
Transmission and Vector Abundance

Danilewsky ( 1 889 ), few epizooti o 1ogica 1 studies have

DISCUSSION
5pi zooti o 1ogy
Vectors
The functional vectors of any arthropod-borne
infection must be present at a density sufficient to
maintain transmission of the organism, must use the host
species as a regular source of blood meals and must be
susceptible to development of the parasite (Sates, 19+9;
Russell, 1 959). Of the 29 species of Cu I iciodes that were
captured in New Jersey light traps at Paynes Prairie and
Fisheating Creek, individuals of only 12 species took blood
meals from turkeys exposed in Bennett traps. Biting

Mahalanobis distances (Kachigan, 1982). A similar function
was derived for microgametocytes using adjusted
measurements of gametocyte length and width, gametocyte
area and number of pigment granules. Measurements of
microgametocyte nuclei were not included because they
were diffuse and poorly defined in Gi emsa-stained blood
smears (Greiner and Forrester, 1980). Two additional
discriminant functions were derived for red blood cells
containing macrogametocytes and for red blood cells
containing microgametocytes. Adjusted measurements of
host cell length and width, host nucleus length and width,
host cell area, host nucleus area and nuclear displacement
ratio were used to derive the functions. The efficacy
of each of the 4 discriminant functions was tested using
adjusted measurements of a fresh sample of 3 or 4
gametocytes and host cells from each infected host species.
Fine Structure
All tissue processed for electron microscopy was
fixed in 3% (v/v) g 1 utara 1dehyde in 0.1% (w/v) sodium
cacodylate buffer with 4% (w/v) sucrose, ph 7.2. Tissue
was post-fixed in 1% (w/v) osmium tetroxide in the same
buffer, stained £n b1oc with 2% uranyl acetate in 75%
ethanol, dehydrated through a graded ethanol series,

Sections of heart from the infected bird had focal
areas of monocytic infiltrate. A single mega 1 oschizont
without an associated host response was present. Other
tissues from the infected and control birds were
un remarkab1e.
Exoerythrocytic Development in Natural Infections
In November, 1970, a male Wild Turkey was captured
near Lake Apopka, Florida. The bird died soon after
capture, was frozen and then necropsied several weeks later
by K.P.C. Na i r and D.J. Forrester (pets. comm.). At
necropsy, scattered whitish cysts, the size of millet
seeds, were noticed on the pectoral muscles. Histological
examination of the tissue revealed occasional spherical
mega 1 oschizonts from 200 400 um in diameter. The
mega 1oschizonts were surrounded by a thick hyaline wall
(Figures 57, 58). Some contained disorganized masses of
dark staining material (Figure 57). Others held
numerous spherical merozoites (Figure 58). Muscle
fibers surrounding some of the mega 1oschizonts were
pale, swollen and had hyaline cytoplasm. Some fibers
contained small, dark-staining granules (Figure 58).
Other infections with the organism were not
detected in many subsequent necropsies of Wild Turkeys from
northern and southern Florida (Forrester, pers. comm.).

At the crisis, the peak parasitemia in the high
dose birds reached an average high of 5,760 gametocytes per
10,000 red cells. Two birds had peak parasitemias that
exceeded 7,000 gametocytes per 10,000 red cells. In
many birds, more than 50% of the red cells contained
developing gametocytes. Multiple infections of red
cells were common, with some cells containing as many as 6
gametocytes. At the crisis, low dose birds had an average
peak parasitemia of 2,109 gametocytes per 10,000 red cells,
less than half that of the high dose group.
Weight. Statistical analysis of the weight data
revealed that all 4 variables in the model statement,
i.e. treatment, subject(treatment), week,
treatment*week, were highly significant (p< .0001).
When comparisons were made by week, all 3 groups were
significantly different 1 week post-infection (PI) and
at the crisis at 3 weeks PI. Weights of high dose birds
were significantly lower than control and low dose birds
during all other weeks. Other differences between the
control and low dose groups were not significant (Figure
37).
When comparisons were made within groups, control and
low dose birds had significant increases in weight at each
week PI. By contrast, average weights for the high dose
group increased during each week, but not significantly at

A discriminant analysis was performed on adjusted
variables from a calibration data set derived from 15
macrogametocytes from the Chuckar, 15 from the turkey and 7
from the Ring-necked Pheasant. It derived a function that
correctly classified 80% of the discriminant scores from
the Chuckar and 80% of those from the turkey (Table
13). It correctly classified only 1 (14.3%) of the 7
scores from the Ring-necked Pheasant. Five of the pheasant
scores (71.4%) were incorrectly identified as turkey and 1
(14.3%) failed to meet criteria for classification in
any of the 3 categories (Table 13).
A small data set composed of adjusted measurements of
4 macrogametocytes from the turkey, 4 from the Chuckar and
3 from the Ring-necked Pheasant was analyzed to test the
validity of the derived function. The derived function
correctly classified 100% of the turkey scores, but only
25% of the Chuckar scores and 33% of the pheasant scores -
values close to what would be expected by chance alone
(Table 14). Three (75%) of the 4 Chuckar scores were
incorrectly classified as turkey (Table 14).
Microgaroetocytes Microgametocytes from each of the 3
host species were morphologically similar and encircled the
host cell nucleus (Figures 61, 63, 65). Average
adjusted values of cell area and cell length were smallest
for m i crogametocytes from the Ring-necked Pheasant

Mi crogametocyt e s contained a large, diffuse nucleus
(Figure 77). Dense aggregates of electron dense
material with embedded microtubules were occasionally
located adjacent to the nuclear envelope (Figure 77).
Axonemes in various stages of assembly were scattered in
the cytoplasm of exf1 age 11 at ing microgametocytes and often
extended from the nucleus to the outer limiting membrane of
the parasite. In cross section, they consisted of 9
peripheral doublets of microtubules that surrounded 2
central tubules (Figures 77, 78). In longitudinal section,
the central tubules had regular striations along their
length (Figure 79). As development progressed, axonemes
budded from the outer surface of the parasite, between
interrupted portions of the osmiophilic inner layer of the
pellicle (Figure 80). Portions of the mi crogametocyte
nucleus were occasionally drawn to the base of flagellar
buds (Figures 80, 81). Exf1age11 ated microgametes
contained a single axoneme and a membrane-bound nucleus
(Figure 82).
Oocys ts
Three-day-old oocysts. Three-day-old oocysts were
subspherical in shape and surrounded by a thick, amorphous
wall (Figure 83). Oocysts were located under the basement
membrane of the midgut. The 2 structures had the same

studies in elucidating the taxonomic and phylogenetic
relationships among the Haemosporina, only 1 study oE
the oocysts of Haemoproteus has been published (Sterling
and DeGiusti, 1974). These workers found that H.
me t c h nik o v i a chelonian parasite that develops in deer
flies, shares features of its sporogonic development
w i t h P 1 a smod i urn and Leucocy t o zoo n that neither of
these2o genera hold in comuon.
Differentiation of the oocyst. The sporogony of avian
and mammalian species of P1 a smod i urn follows a number of
similar steps (Mehlhorn et al., 1980; Sinden and Strong,
1978; Garnhan et al., 1969; Terzakis et al., 1967; Terzakis
et al., 1966; Duncan et al., 1960). After penetrating the
midgut, the ookinete rounds-up under the basement
membrane. Mehlhorn et al. (1980) found the remains of
polar rings and mictonemes derived from the apical complex
of the ookinete at the periphery of early P^ ga 1 1 inaceum
oocysts. Similarly, Garnham et al. (1969) found
remnants of this complex in a dimple or small groove in the
peripheral cytoplasm of early oocysts of P^ b e r g h ei
yoe1 ii. Studies of older PI asmodium oocysts have failed to
find evidence that these organelles persist more than a few
days. Among other Haemosporina, the remnants of apical
organelles from the ookinete have been observed in
early, but not later oocysts of t awaki (Des ser and

cage to Cu 1icoides-proof turkey rooms and held for 4 weeks
to allow any infections acquired in the field to become
patent. They were replaced in the field on the same day
with unexposed, 2-week-old poults. The sentinel birds
were bled from a leg vein, 3 times a week for 4 weeks,
following their exposure in the field. Blood smears were
fixed with absolute methanol and stained with 10% Giemsa,
pH 7.2. Infections were diagnosed by scanning
approximately 10,000 red blood cells at 1000X. All turkeys
used in this study were obtained as day-old poults from
Thaxton's Turkeys (P.O. Box 127, Watki nsvi 11e, Georgia).
Vectors
Once every 2 weeks a Bennett trap (Bennett, 1960)
and a New Jersey light trap were operated at each site
within 50 m of the sentinel cages. The Bennett trap was
operated in the middle level of the forest canopy where
ornithoph i 1 i c species of Cu 1 icoi des are most active (Tanner
and Turner, 1974) from approximately I hour before sunset
to 1 hour after sunset. A turkey was placed into an 0.3
cubic meter welded wire cage made from 1.3 cm mesh and
hoisted on an 0.6 square meter plywood board into the
canopy by means of lightweight nylon rope and small
pulleys. Following an exposure of 10 20 minutes, the
bird was lowered quickly to the ground and covered with
an 0.6 cubic meter wooden frame screened with fine nylon

The infected birds tended to have lighter body weights,
enlarged, blackened spleens and livers that were slightly
smaller than normal. O'Roke (1930) felt that the
parasitized blood cells had less oxygen carrying capacity
and were less elastic and more likely to rupture when
passing through small capillaries. He described 4 stages
of disease in birds infected with fU lophortyx: 1)
mild-chronic with no obvious signs of infection, 2)
mild-acute where birds were restless and had poor appetites
for 2 to 4 days, 3) moderate-chronic where birds were
anemic, weak and more susceptible to death by exposure
and exhaustion and 4) heavy-acute where birds lost weight,
refused food, were unable to fly and eventually died.
O'Roke commonly observed birds with moderate-chronic
infections in the field, but saw only 4 heavy-acute
infections in the several hundred birds he examined.
Unfortunately, O'Roke did not attempt to reproduce the
disease in experimentally infected quail or precisely
quantify parasitemias and course of infection as they
related to the stage of the disease.
More recently, Julian and Galt (1980) reported several
incidents of a pathogenic Haemoproteus infection in Muscovy
Ducks, Cairina mo s c h a t a from Ontario. They found large
numbers of schizonts, morphologically similar to those
of other species of Haemop r o t eu s in endothelial cells
from a variety of tissues. The schizonts appeared to

areas of diffuse, white streaks, several rnn in length,
embedded deeply in the tissue. These were less distinctive
than the white fascia that separated muscle bundles. Fully
mature megaloschizonts containing numerous, densely packed,
spherical zoites and several large, central vacuoles
were present in sections of the tissue (Figure 50, 51).
Immature forms resembling 14-day-old schizonts were also
present. The mega losch i zon t s were surrounded by a thick
hyaline wall and ranged from 30 to 113 urn in diameter.
They extended as far as 465 urn along the long axis of
muscle fibers. Fibers adjacent to the mega 1oschizonts were
swollen, pale and hyaline (Figure 50). Several layers
of connective tissue, infiltrated with macrophages,
surrounded some schizonts. A large degenerating
meg a 1 oschizont filled with amorphous, gray material
containing irregularly shaped red masses, was present in 1
section. The mega 1oschizont was surrounded by giant cells
and an outer layer of connective tissue (Figure 56).
Ruptured, partially empty mega 1oschizonts that contained
small numbers of scattered zoites were also present (Figure
52). Each zoite contained a small mass of chromatin and a
large vacuole. Giemsa-sta i ned erythrocytes from the
same bird contained young gametocytes that were
morphologically indistinguishable from the exoerythrocytic
zoites.

309 eastern Wild Turkeys collected in the southeastern
U.S., Kellog et al. (1969) only found hippoboscid flies
occasionally. Forrester (unpublished) has never recovered
hippoboscids from Florida Wild Turkeys. Despite the
uncommon occurrence of hippoboscid flies on Wild Turkeys,
the prevalence of Ha einop roteus infections is high.
Forrester et al. (1974) found 69% of 85 Wild Turkeys from
northern Florida and 87% of 399 Wild Turkeys from southern
Florida infected with this parasite. Other workers have
found prevalences ranging from 5% in Pennsylvania (Kozicky,
1948) to 80% in southern Texas (Cook, et al., 1966).
The rarity of hippoboscid flies, the high prevalence of
Haemop r ot eus infections and the fact that transmission
of the parasite to caged domestic turkeys readily occurs
when they are placed in a suitable habitat (Forrester,
et al., 1974) suggest that ceratopogonids are the primary
vectors of fC me 1eag rid i s in Florida. In confirmation
of this, Atkinson et al. (1983) recently demonstrated
that at least 3 species of Florida Cu 1 icoi des could support
complete development of the sporogonic stages of H,
me 1eag ridis.
This study was undertaken to
(1) determine the vectors and investigate the seasonal
transmission and ep i zooti o 1ogy of me 1eag rid i s in
Florida,


257
on the basis of measurements alone. All 3 species were
retained because experimental studies had demonstrated
their specificity to particular host families. In view of
the recent revisions in avian taxonomy, similar studies of
host specificity of avian haemoproteids, e g H
me 1eag ridis and man soni, should be conducted before
synonymies are proposed.
Fine Structure
Mature Gametocytes
Mature gametocytes of me 1 eagridis were similar
in fine structure to gametocytes of other species of
Haemoproteus Ultrastructural features of the
cytostoine, nucleus and nucleolus, mitochondria, osmiophilic
bodies, cytoplasmic ribosomes and endoplasmic reticulum
were essentially identical to gametocytes of H.
co 1 umba e v e 1 an s and me t c h n i k o v i (Bradbury and
Roberts, 1970; Sterling, 1972; Sterling and Aikawa,
1973; Bradbury and Trager, 1968a; Desser, 1972a).
Differences from other species of Haemoproteus were
apparent in the pellicle of meleagridis. Studies of
gametocytes of other species have shown that the
pellicle is composed of 3 layers 2 outer unit


251
Mac rosametogen es is Few detailed ultrastructural
observations of the maturation of ma ergame tes have been
made for any species of Haemoproteus 3radbury and Trager
(1968a) provided the most detailed description. During the
initial steps of gametocyte maturation in columbae, they
noted the detachment of the endoplasmic reticulum from the
nuclear envelop and the elongation of the
macrogametocyte nucleus from a spherical to an ellipsoidal
shape. The changes in nuclear shape were accompanied by
the appearance of an intranuclear spindle that converged on
an electron dense plaque in the nuclear membrane. Two
"atypical" centrioles composed of a circle of 9, single
microtubules rather than the conventional circle of 9,
triple microtubules were embedded in an electron dense
material. They appeared in the cytoplasm next to the
electron dense plaque. Approximately 10 minutes after the
start of gametocyte maturation, the nucleus constricted
twice to form 2, detached maturation bodies. The
intranuclear spindle as well as the nucleolus were retained
by the nucleus.
A similar process appeared to occur in maturing
inacrogametocytes of H_j_ meleagridis although
observations are limited. Unfortunately, gametocyte
maturation was not followed longer than 3 minutes, so
the formation of maturation bodies was not observed.
Atypical centrioles were not found in association with the

Focal aceas of enteritis characterized by the presence
of heterophils in the lamina propria and submucosa were
present in sections of intestine and cecum. Coccidian
parasites were not detected. Sections of kidney, brain,
bone marrow, proventri cu 1 us and gizzard were unremarkable.
Microscopic observations surviving birds. At 8
weeks post-infection, nodular infiltrates of mononuclear
cells, macrophages, heterophils and giant cells were
evident in sections of skeletal muscle from low dose and
high dose birds (Figure 33). The hyaline remnants of
the outer wall of degenerating mega 1oschizonts and necrotic
and calcified muscle fibers were at the center of some
of the nodules. A scattered lymphocytic, heterophilic
infiltrate was frequently perivascular and often present
between muscle fibers. Pectoral muscle from 1 low dose
bird contained a degenerating cyst with merozoites (Figure
34). Thrombi surrounded by macrophages and heterophils
were present in some sections (Figure 34). Remnants of
degenerating muscle fibers, infiltrated with macrophages
and heterophils, were scattered randomly throughout the
sections of muscle (Figure 35).
Sections of liver, lung and spleen from both low
and high dose birds contained moderate to extensive, random
deposits of pigment. No pigment was found in control
birds. Deposits in the liver and spleen were massive


31
to determine the approximate dosage. Each of the 12 birds
was inoculated with 0.5 cc of slurry containing
approximately 4,400 sporozoites.
Birds in the second experimental group were inoculated
IP with separate pools of 35 specimens of edeni ground
and quantified as above. Each bird was inoculated with
0.5 cc of slurry containing approximately 57,500
sporozoites. Birds in the control group were inoculated
IP with 0.5 cc of RPM1 tissue culture fluid containing
10% turkey serum.
Following inoculation the birds were housed in groups
of 3 in 12 battery cages in a vector-proof room. Each
compartment held 1 bird from each experimental group.
Birds were assigned to the compartments with a random
number table. The poults were fed and watered as described
earlier.
Twenty-four hours prior to their inoculation (Week
0), and once a week for 8 weeks following infection, each
bird was weighed and the tarsometatarsal length of the
right leg was measured with calipers. Two heparinized
capillary tubes were filled with blood from a wing vein.
Blood was immediately drawn from I capillary tube into
2, 20 ul pipettes. The contents of each pipette was
irrmediately dispensed into each of 2 separate test tubes
containing 5 mis of cyanomethemag1ob i n reagent (1:251

large number o£ often poorly described species in this
genus, it is totally dependent on the maintenance of a
stable system of classification of the avian hosts.
Recently, the Committee on Classification and Nomenclature
of the American Ornithologist's Union (1983) published a
revised sixth edition of the Checklist of North American
Birds For the first time since the publication of the
third edition in 1910, the committee incorporated major
changes in the systematics of higher categories. These
changes were based on the conservative evaluation of
many new discoveries in the morphology, paleontology,
biochemistry, genetics and behavior of avian species
(Checklist of North American Birds, 1983). While the
status of many orders and families remained unchanged,
extensive revisions were made in others, e.g.
Passeriformes, Gall¡formes, that may require corresponding
revisions in haemoproteid taxonomy.
Prior to the 1983 revision of the Checklist of
North American Birds, the Order Gall¡formes was composed of
5 families: Cracidae (Curassows and Guans), Phasianidae
(Pheasants and Quail), Tetraonidae (Grouse), Me 1eagrididae
(Turkeys) and Numididae (Guineafowl). In the 1983 edition
of the Checklist of No r t h Ame rican Birds, only 2
families were recognized in the Order Gall¡formes: Cracidae
(Curassows and Guans) and Phasianidae (Pheasants, Quail,
Grouse, Turkeys, Guineafowl). The families Phasianidae,




247
Leucocytozoon have documented increases in parasite
specific immunoglobulins as the infections progressed
(Congdon et al., 1969; Mor ii, 1972).
3y o weeks pos t i n f ec t i on when the experiment was
ended, surviving birds had regenerating muscle fibers
and scarring associated with the destruction and removal of
mega 1 oschizonts (Figures 33 34 35 ). The persistence
of some meg a 1 oschizonts up to 8 weeks post-infection
suggests that they may be a source for relapses.
It is impossible to determine whether the high
(33%) mortality in the high dose group resulted from the H.
me 1eag rid i s infection alone, or whether the concurrent
SalmoneI 1 a infection was a significant factor. Studies of
the interactions between P^ be r g h ei and S a Imone11 a
typhimuriurn have shown that mice infected with both agents
died earlier than mice infected with either agent alone
(Kaye et al., 1965). Viens et al. (1974) had similar
results when they infected mice with P_^ y o e 1 i i and
Bo r de t e1 la pe r t u s s i Cox (1978 ) suggested that the
synergism between Plasmodium infections and other
infectious agents may result from the imnunodepression that
often accompanies P1 a smodiurn infections. Similar
studies have not been conducted with Haemoproteus.
Because of the way they were housed, all birds in each
of the 3 experimental groups had an equal exposure to
Salmone11 a enteriditis. The close proximity of the battery


269
subdivision of the oocyst cytoplasm into many sporoblast
bodies and the endogenous or internal sporozoite budding
that occurs in P1 a smod i urn is probably an adaptation to
increase the surface area available for sporozoite
formation (Sinden and Strong, 1978).
Limited observations of me 1 eagr i d i s from this study
suggest that vacuolization and cleft formation do not
occur. Thus, this parasite closely resembles Leucocytozoon
in size of oocysts and number of sporozoites produced as
well as in contraction of the sporoblast body and
differentiation of the sporozoites.
Nuclear divisions. The nuclear events following
fertilization of haemosporidian parasites are still poorly
understood. Bano (1959) and Canning and Anwar (1963) found
evidence of post-zygotic meiosis in the early oocysts of
P1 a smodi urn. They observed what they believed to be 4
chromosomes in diploid oocysts and 2 in haploid oocysts in
stained preparations. Later studies with electron
microscopy have shown that the chromosomes do not
condense. The dark-sta in i ng nuclear masses observed
earlier may have been nucleoli (Mehlhorn et al., 1980)
or fragments of an enlarged digitate nucleus (Canning
and Sinden, 1973). Mehlhorn et al. (1980) observed nuclear
spindles in zygotes and in ookinetes of P^ ga 1 1 i naceum and

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH
Carter Tait Atkinson was born on November 23, 1954, in
Betbesda, Maryland. He graduated from Gaithersburg High
School in June, 1972, and received a Bachelor of Science
degree with honors in biology from Dickinson College in
May, 1976. During the following 3 summers, he worked as a
field ornithologist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
on their Hawaii Forest Bird Survey. While working in
the Hawaiian Islands, he became interested in the role
of introduced diseases in the decline and extinction of
native Hawaiian birds. This interest led him to enroll as
a graduate student at the University of Maryland between
September, 1978, and May, 1979. In August, 1979, he
enrolled as a student in the Department of Tropical
Medicine and Medical Parasitology at the Louisiana State
University Medical Center in New Orleans. He graduated in
August, 1981, and received a Master of Science degree in
parasitology. In September, 1981, he enrolled in the
graduate program at the University of Florida.

New Jersey trap catches. Cu 1 icoi de s e deni and
Cu 1 i co i des h i n in a n i were the most common species
collected in the CC>2-baited New Jersey suction traps.
During the March, April and May, 1983, collecting trips to
Fisheating Creek, specimens of eden i had a peak in
activity during the 2-hour sampling period that included
sunset (Figure 11). Individuals of this species were
active at low levels during the night in March and April.
During all 3 collecting trips, activity increased following
sunrise and continued throughout the day at levels lower
than the evening peak. During the day, specimens of C.
eden i were often observed crawling on the head and on
the back feathers of sentinel turkeys exposed on the
ground. Most individuals of edeni were captured in the
suction trap that was operated in the canopy (Figure 11).
During the April and May collecting trips,
specimens of hinmani had peaks in activity during the
2-hour sampling period that included sunset and during the
early morning hours following sunrise (Figure 12).
Activity during the April trip continued into the early
afternoon. Similar diurnal activity did not occur
during the March collecting trip. All specimens of C.
hinmani were captured in the canopy trap. This species
was never captured in Bennett traps operated on the ground.


249
effects in natural Haemoproteus infections have done little
to refute this view. The best documented pathology in
natural Haemoproteas infections was done by O'Roke
(1930) with his study of lophor t yx in California Valley
Quail. He attributed the morbidity and mortality he
observed to anemia caused by rupture of parasitized
erythrocytes and felt that the gametocytes made their host
cells more fragile and susceptible to rupture as they
passed through the capillary beds. The results of this
study indicate that me 1 e ag r i d i s can be severely
pathogenic in high doses and can have detectable effects on
growth and weight at low doses. The pathogenic effects
associated with the experimental infections was more
similar to host reactions to megaloschizonts of
L e ucocy tozoon than to the erythrocyte destruction and
anemia caused by ?1asmodiurn.
Since the lesions in the naturally infected Wild
Turkey found by Nair and Forrester were similar to those of
the experimentally infected birds, 1C me 1eagridis may be a
cause of morbidity and mortality in Wild Turkeys. It
may only be significant in holoendemic areas such as
southern Florida and perhaps southern Texas where the
prevalence of the parasite ranges from 90-100% and rates of
transmission are high (Forrester et al., 1974; Cook et al.,
1966).

turkey-baited Bennett traps at both sites. The traps were
operated on 115 different evenings for a total of 211 hours
(Table 3). Cu 1 ico i de s eden i (48.0%) and hinmani
(26.2%) were the most conrnon species and, together, made up
74.2% of the combined catch from each site. Specimens
of s can 1 oni (7.9%), arbor ico1 a (7.6%) and nanus
(5.1%) composed 20.6% of the total. Representatives of the
remaining 7 species made up 5.1% of the total Bennett trap
catch.
Fisheating Creek. During 28 nights of trapping
between December, 1982, and November, 1984, 17,857
specimens of Cu 1 icoides belonging to 13 species were
captured in New Jersey light traps at Fisheating Creek
(Table 4). Cu 1 icoi de s i n s i gnis (44.5%) and edeni
(40.1%) were the most corrmon species and composed 85.2% of
the catch. Cu 1 icoi des knowlton i (7.6%) and O stelIifer
(4.2%) were less conrnon and made up 11.8% of the catch.
Representatives of the remaining 9 species were captured
infrequently or in low numbers and composed only 3% of the
total catch.
During the same period, 2,561 engorged individuals of
5 species of Cu 1 icoi des were captured in turkey-baited
Bennett traps operated on 47 different evenings for a total
of 108 hours (Table 5). Approximately 98% of the total
catch was composed of specimens of edeni (79.6%) and

Avian species of the genus Haemoproteus are comnon
haemosporidian parasites found in many families of birds.
In spite of their widespread occurrence, little is known of
their vectors, epizootiology and pathogenicity.
Ha emo proteus me 1e a g rid i s occurs in Wild Turkeys
throughout the southeastern United States. Results of this
study showed that members of at least 5 species of
ceratopogonid flies in the genus Cu 1 i coide s, i.e.
Cu 1 ic o id e s e d e n i Cu 1 icoid e s hinma ni, Cu 1 icoide s
arbor ¡cola, Cu 1 ic o id e s k n ow1t o n i and Cu 1 ic oide s
haematopotus, could support development of the
sporogonic stages of the parasite.
Results of a 2-year epizooti o 1ogica 1 study of
Ha ernoproteus me 1 eagr i d i s indicated that Cu 1 i co i des eden i is

similar lesions. Instead, he found small schizonts in
endothelial cells of lung tissue. It is not clear from his
work, though, whether he examined histological sections of
skeletal, cardiac and gizzard muscle. The absence of
obvious gross lesions and cysts in the turkey with a
17-day-old infection of me 1eagr i d i s suggests that
megaloschizonts may be missed, particularly if their
development is not suspected. Since muscle tissue makes up
a large proportion of the total body mass, small numbers of
scattered cysts may be difficult to find and yet produce
enough gametocytes to infect a large proportion of the red
blood cells.
The elongate, f i rst-generat i on merozoites of H
me 1 e a g r i d i s are similar to the merozoites contained in
small schizonts described by Gardiner et al. (1984). The
development of schizonts in the spleen of 1 turkey
during the pathogenicity experiment indicates that the
exoerythrocyt ic stages found by Gardiner et al. (1984) may
be part of the life cycle of lophortyx. Since
haemoproteids are believed to be specific to host family
(Bennett et al., 1982), Northern 3obwhites may be a
susceptible but aberrant host for lophortyx.
Clearly, additional experimental work with other species of
Haemop roteus is needed to determine the significance of
these exoerythrocytic stages in haemoproteid life cycles.

Since most studies o£ oocysts o£ liaemospor i d i an
parasites are not based on serial sections, it is not clear
when final fragmentation of the large polyploid nucleus
occurs. Howells and Davies (1971) suggested that the
large, lobulate nucleus of berghei may break up soon
after cleft formation subdivides the cytoplasm into
sporoblast bodies. Each nucleus may then undergo a
final division as opposing ends migrate into sporozoite
buds. Schrevel et a 1 (1977) felt that budding and
fragmentation of the nucleus occurred at the same time
sporozoites budded from the sporoblast body. They also
suggested that the multiple mitoses that occurred prior to
sporozoite differentiation allowed numerous genetic
units to be positioned in the nuclear cortex for the
direction of sporozoite differentiation.
Studies of Leucocytozoon have indicated that
nuclear division may occur in a manner similar to
PIasmodiurn. Multiple kinetic centers have been observed in
the nuclear envelope of s imond i L_^ dubreu i 1 i and L.
t a w a ki, but the sequence of events leading to final
fragmentation of the nucleus has not been studied in detail
(Desser, 1972c; Wong and Desser, 1976; Desser and Allison,
1979).
Kinetic centers have not been described in H
metchnikovi, nor were they found in this study.
However, it seems likely that haemoproteids may undergo

1 night during a sentinel period, the geometric mean of
all samples was calculated (Bid1ingmeyer, 1969).
A standard New Jersey light trap (Hausherr's Machine
Works, Old Freehold Rd. Toms River, NJ) equipped with
a 40 watt incandescent bulb, an automatic timer and a
delivery cone made from 40-mesh brass was operated at
each of the 2 sites 1 night approximately every 2 weeks.
Two to 3 kg of dry ice were placed in an insulated paper
envelope and hung next to the top of the trap to act as
a carbon dioxide attractant. The trap was operated in
the middle levels of the canopy at the same spot where
the Bennett trap had been placed. Sampling with the New
Jersey trap usually followed or preceded operation of
the Bennett trap by 1 day. The trap was powered by a
portable 500 watt gasoline generator and was started 30
minutes to 1 hour before sunset and run until dawn.
Insects were collected into a 1 pint mason jar containing
10% buffered formalin and a small amount of detergent
(Alconox, Fisher Scientific). Aliquots of each sample
were poured into a white enamel pan and diluted with
water. Specimens of Cu 1 icoides were picked from each
aliquot with a Pasteur pipette, identified, grouped by
sex and parity and counted. New Jersey light trap data
for each species were expressed as the log]g of the number
captured per trap night, plus 1. The geometric mean was

post-infection (Figure 37). The surviving high dose birds
remained significantly smaller than control and low dose
turkeys throughout the course of the study (Figure 38).
Low dose birds were smaller than controls, but not
significantly so. If the sample size had been larger,
it is possible that significant effects on growth and
weight gain would have been detected for the low dose group
as well.
Few host effects were associated with the development
of the erythrocytic gametocytes, although these may have
been masked by the massive host response to the
mega 1oschizonts. Average hematocrit and hemoglobin values
were not significantly different for any of the 3
experimental groups at the crisis, or at the second peak in
parasitemia at 6 weeks post-infection (Figures 39, 41). A
significant drop in average hemoglobin concentration
occurred in the high dose group, 1 week after the crisis.
This drop corresponded to the rapid clearance of
parasitized red blood cells from the circulation and their
replacement with immature erythroblasts that had not
completely synthesized their total hemoglobin content
(Lucas and Jamroz, 1961). The absence of other significant
weekly differences in average hemoglobin concentration and
average hematocrit among the 3 experimental groups
indicates that removal of parasitized red cells was
balanced by the synthesis and release of erythroblasts.

will need to be synonymized once their life cycles are
better known. Few of the experiments needed to confirm
the current classification have been done. Huff (1932),
Coatney (1933) and Baker (1957, 1966, 1968) studied the
host specificity of sacharovi and 1C macea 11 umi from
Mourning Doves, Zenaida macroura carol inensis, H. co1umbae
from Rock Doves, Co 1 umba 1 i v i a, and pal umbi s from Wood
Pigeons, Co 1umba pa 1umbis, respectively. Huff ( 1 932)
was able to transmit H^ s acha r ov i and H^ macea 11 umi to
Rock Doves by the bite of infected hippoboscid flies,
but Coatney (1933) was unable to infect Mourning Doves
with H^ columbae by either fly bite or inoculation of
sporozoites. Baker (1966b, 1968) attempted unsuccessfully
to transmit fK pa 1 umb i s from Wood Pigeons to Rock Doves
by injection of sporozoites. Similar host restriction
was demonstrated by Fa 1 1 is and Bennett (1960) for H.
canachites f r om a Spruce Grouse, Canachi tes canadens i s.
They inoculated sporozoites obtained from Cu 1 icoides
sphagnume n sis into uninfected Ruffed Grouse, Bonasa
umb e11u s domestic ducks, Anas bo s cha s a Rock Dove,
Columba 1 i via, and a Java Sparrow, Padda oryzivora. Only
Ruffed Grouse became infected. These results must be
interpreted with care since the authors did not include
positive controls when they inoculated the Rock Dove and
Java Sparrow.

morphology to the mega 1 osch¡zonts of Leucocytozoon
(Gardiner et al., 1984). In most cases, development of
megaloschizonts occurred in the absence of circulating
gametocytes. Garnham (1973a, 1973b) suggested that
these were aberrant Leucocytozoon infections in abnormal
hosts. Gardiner et al. (1984) recently reviewed these
reports and described similar mega 1oschizonts in pen-reared
Northern Uobwhites from Ca1ifornia. The cysts described in
all the reports have a number of features in common,
including a hyaline wall of variable thickness, development
in muscle tissue and formation of numerous, spherical
merozoites approximately 1 um in diameter. Most have an
associated host myopathy.
The results of this study provide the first
experimental evidence that some of these organisms may
be haemoproteids Gardiner et al. (1984) observed
pigmented gametocytes, morphologically similar to H.
1ophor t y x, in red blood cells of Northern Bobwhites that
died from an extensive myositis associated with developing
mega 1 oschizonts However, since they observed small
schizonts with elongate zoites and hypertrophied host cell
nuclei in spleen tissue that were unlike any reported
schizonts of Leucocytozoon or Haemoproteus, they suggested
that the causitive organism may be a new member of the
Haemosporina. O'Roke (1930) conducted a detailed study of
H. 1ophortyx in California Valley Quail, but never reported

by site, year and quarter. To determine whether capture
data from each site, year and quarter could be combined
by species and analyzed as a single data set, the mean
capture time, standard deviation and sample size was
computed for each species by site, year and quarter.
Because some species were not active during all quarters,
and a number of empty "cells" were present when mean
capture times were examined by site, year and quarter,
it was assumed that year had a minimal effect on
variability in the data. Data for each species from each
of the 3 years of the study were combined by site and
quarter. An analysis of variance using the Statistical
Analysis System, general linear models procedure was used
to test for significant interaction effects between
species*si te, spec i es*quir ter, s i te*quar ter and
spec ies*site*quarter (SAS User's Guide: Statistics, 1982).
An alpha level of 0.05 was considered significant.
Species*site and species*quarter interactions were
significant (p< 0.0001). The analysis was repeated without
the Fisheating Creek data to determine whether data from
the 2 sites at Paynes Prairie could be combined by
quarter. Species*quarter interactions were significant
(p < 0.0001). The final analysis was done by site (Site
A and B combined) and quarter with a one-way analysis
of variance using the SAS general linear models procedure
(SAS User's Guide: Statistics, 1982). Significant species

hyaline and often had disrupted sarcoplasm (Figure 54).
Individual swollen, rounded and hyaline muscle fibers were
scattered randomly throughout healthy tissue. A few focal
areas of perivascular monocytic infiltrate were present.
Schizonts measuring from 12 to 20 um in diameter were
present both within and between muscle fibers (Figures 43,
44). The smaller, more immature parasites contained
dark-staining, granular cytoplasm (Figure 43). The larger,
more mature forms were packed with dark-staining, elongate
zoites that were bent and twisted around each other (Figure
44). None of the parasites had an associated host
reaction.
Sections of heart from the infected bird had focal
aggregates of mononuclear cells scattered randomly
throughout the tissue. Hepatocellular atrophy and necrosis
were evident in sections of liver. The spleen was enlarged
and contained numerous erythropoietic cells in the vascular
sinuses. Other tissues from the infected and control bird
were unremarkable.
Eight days. By 8 days post-infection infected birds
showed dramatic signs of improvement and were back on their

skeletal muscle from the inoculated poult had a few
focal areas of perivascular monocytic infiltrate. Some
muscle fibers appeared disrupted, with granular sarcoplasm
and scattered islands of pale, disorganized myoglobin
(Figure 53). A single, uninucleate parasite with blue-gray
granular cytoplasm was detected within a capillary (Figure
42). The organism was 3 um in diameter and present in only
1 of a series of 4 um serial sections. Other tissues in
the infected and control bird were unremarkable.

10 species of Cu 1 icoi des were collected from Bennett traps
baited with turkeys infected with 1G me 1eagr i d i s Fresh
preparations and Giemsa-stained smears of engorged midguts,
dissected from specimens of edeni within 24 hours after
a blood meal was taken, had numerous ookinetes. In
fresh preparations, ookinetes had a retractile "knob" or
"point" at one end and a mass of golden-brown pigment at
the other (Figure 1). Fifteen Giemsa-stained ookinetes
measured 16.5-21.1 um in length (Mean = 18.95, SD = 1.4)
and 2.5-3.75 um in width (Mean = 2.98, SD = 0.458). The

length (Mean = 2.48, SD r 0.417) and 1.5-2.25 um in
width (Mean = 1.98, SD = 0.32). In well stained
preparations, 1, and occasionally 2, empty vacuoles,
slightly smaller than the ookinete nucleus, were located
anterior and/or posterior to it.

mesh (28 mesh per cm). Two domestic turkeys that were
the same age and size were hoisted alternately into the
canopy. While 1 bird was exposed, the second was left
undisturbed under the screened wooden frame for 10 minutes
to allow specimens of Cu 1 icoi des to complete their blood
meals. Engorged and unengorged individuals of each species
of Cu 1 icoides were then aspirated through a sleeve in
the top of the outer screened frame as they rested on
its interior.
Specimens of Cu 1 icoi des aspirated during each run
of the Bennett trap were placed into half-pint cardboard
cartons with screened tops and supplied with a cotton
pad moistened with 5% (w/v) sucrose. The beginning and
ending times for each run of the Bennett trap, temperature,
wind velocity estimated by the Beaufort scale (Oliver,
1973) and overall weather conditions were recorded. Since
early attempts at Bennett trapping were unsuccessful in
rain and when wind velocity exceeded Beaufort 3 (4-7
miles/hr.), all trapping throughout the course of the
study was done on calm evenings when rainfall was not
imminent. Between 1 and 9 days after capture, the
specimens of Cu 1 icoi des were identified (Blanton and Wirth,
1979) and classified according to parity by the method
of Dyce (1969). Bennett trap catches of individuals of
each species were expressed as the 1 og ] q of the number
captured, plus 1. When sampling was done on more than

ve 1 an s (Fall is and Wood, 1957; Fall is and Bennett, 1960;
Khan and Falls, 1971).
Activity Cycles
Most species of Cu 1 i coide s have crepuscular and/or
nocturnal peaks in their daily activity cycles that may
play an important role in their contact with potential
hosts (Kettle, 1965, 1977; Barnard and Jones, 1980).
Kettle (1968b) noted that this cycle is probably an
endogenous circadian rhythm, regulated by changes in light
intensity and modified by local meteorological
conditions such as wind velocity and temperature. A number
of sampling techniques have been used to measure diel
changes in activity, including truck-mounted
interception traps (3 id1ingmeyer, 1961), suction traps
(Service, 1971), biting collections (Kettle, 1968a) and
paddle traps (Nathan, 1981). Studies that have employed
more than 1 sampling method have generally found them to be
in close agreement in detecting major peaks of activity
during the 24-hour cycle (Nathan, 1981; Service, 1971).

muscles. They were 2-3 times larger and were more diffuse
than cysts observed in the 4 fatal infections. Cysts were
not detected in any of the 11 control birds.
All surviving birds had focal areas of reddened,
swollen mucosa and occasional petechial hemorrhages
throughout the length of the gut. None of the birds
exhibited clinical signs of salmonellosis, i.e. "pasty"
vent, bloody diarrhea or depression. The "pasty vents"
observed in high dose birds at 1 week PI resolved
spontaneously in surviving birds by 4 weeks PI. At the
termination of the experiment, cloacal swabs from 2 of
11 control birds, 1 of 12 low dose birds and 1 of 8 high
dose birds were positive for Salmone11 a enteriditis
Group 8. Coccidian oocysts were not detected in pooled
fecal samples at either 4 or 8 weeks post-infection.
Incidental findings included the presence of numerous
white nodules, approximately 5 ¡ira in diameter, that were
scattered throughout the mesentery lining the abdominal
cavity of 1 control bird and 2 high dose birds.
Average wet weights of hearts and livers removed from
the birds at necropsy were not significantly different for
any group (Table 11). The difference in average spleen
weights among the 3 groups was highly significant (p<
.0002).

is associated with development of the large mega 1oschizonts
(Miller et a 1 ., 1983; Newberne, 1957).
During the earliest stages of infection with H
me 1eagr i d i s myopathy was restricted to isolated muscle
fibers. Sy 5 days post-infection, entire bundles of as
many as 5-10 adjacent myofibers were necrotic. The absence
of focal areas of inflammation and necrosis irrmediately
around f i rst-generat ion schizonts suggests that the
extensive necrosis was not due to the release of toxins by
developing parasites or to blockage or interference with
the local circulation. The extensive myopathy may have
been related to the size of the initial inoculum. The
total numbers of exoerythrocytic schizonts were
significantly fewer than in the pathogenicity experiment
where the total sporozoite dose was only 1/3 as large.
Perhaps many host cells were invaded by more than 1
sporozoite and were unable to support the development of
multiple schizonts. Their early death would explain the
low number of megaloschizonts that developed relative to
the infective dose. Wallace (1973) observed myositis
and myocarditis in mice that had been infected orally with
large numbers of Sarcocys t i s sporocysts. He found that the
myositis became apparent before sarcocysts developed and
was not associated with the early first-generation
schizonts. The myositis was also evident in experimentally
infected mice that failed to develop detectable sarcocysts,

Crystal 1 oid Crystalloid aggregations of electron
dense particles consisting of a lipo-protein complex
have been reported from the oocysts of Leucocytozoon, H.
me t c h n i!: o v i and from the early oocysts of EC ga 1 1 i naceuin
and EC b e r g h e i (Trefiak and Desser, 1973). Trefiak and
Desser (1973) found that they they originate from amorphous
aggregations of electron dense material in the macrogametes
o f L_^ s i mond i They suggested that the crystalloid
functions as an energy source since it appears to be
utilized quickly in rapidly growing oocysts of
P1 a smodium and is incorporated into the sporozoites of
Leucocy tozoon and me t chnikovi. The former have been
found to persist in their avian hosts for up to 11 days and
may require a reserve energy source to maintain their
viability (Khan et al., 1969).

limited, though, by the availability of a suitable domestic
host for the blood parasite under investigation. As a
result, this technique has been limited primarily to the
study of Leucocytozoon and Haemoproteus in ducks.
Forrester (unpublished data) and Akey (1981), at
Fisheating Creek, were the first to use domestic, sentinel
turkeys to monitor the natural transmission of H
me 1eagridis. Earlier surveys in this area by Forrester et
al. (1974) established that me 1eagr i d i s had a prevalence
that ranged from 70 100% in Wild Turkeys older than 5
months. The increasing prevalence of me 1 eagrid i s in
juvenile birds collected at monthly intervals up to 1 year
after hatching suggested that transmission of the parasite
occurred throughout the year (Forrester et al., 1974). In
concurrence with this, Forrester (unpublished) found
that transmission occurred to 50- 100% of the sentinel
poults that he exposed for 12, 2-week intervals between
May, 1978 and May 1979. Akey (1981) had similar results
during a shorter study between May and August, 1980, in the
same area. Both Forrester (unpublished) and Akey
(1981) noted that transmission of me 1eag rid i s
occurred at higher prevalences among birds caged in the
canopy, than to those caged on the ground. Results of the
present study confirm these previous observations at
Fisheating Creek and extend the observations from the warm,


224
or whether a significant reduction in the population
size had occurred.
Fisheating Creek is subject to frequent flooding
and wide fluctuations in water levels and flow (U.S.
Geological Survey, Water Resources Division, Orlando,
Florida). During the drier months of the year (November -
March), flow may be reduced to a trickle and the stream can
become a series of shallow pools and ponds. During
heavy rainstorms, stream levels may rise as much as 7 feet
in 24 hours. Because the topography in the area is very
flat, ranging from 30 to 55 feet above sea level, the
creek swamp may be flooded up to 1 km or more on either
side of the stream channel. Since individuals of many
species of Cu I i c o i d e s including C^ eden i breed in
moist soil or mud at the edges of permanent or
semi-permanent bodies of water (Kettle, 1977),
extensive flooding may erode breeding sites and wash the
immature stages away. Corresponding reductions in adult
populations may reduce the numbers of potential vectors to
below the critical density needed to maintain continuous
transmission of the parasite.
Patterns of transmission and vector abundance at
Paynes Prairie were similar to those at Fisheating Creek.
The year-round activity of individuals of Ch edeni, the
isolation of me 1ea3ridis from specimens of naturally
infected O e d e ni and the conspicuous absence of


273
tend to be smaller in oocysts of those species that form
prominent crystalloids.
The absence of a crystalloid in 3-day-old and
6-day-old oocysts of me 1eagridis suggests that the large
lipid-like inclusions observed in this study may
function as energy reserves. Observations of earlier
oocysts are needed to determine whether a crystalloid is
present in this parasite.
Mega 1oschizon t s
The thick laminated cyst wall and the process of
inerozoi te formation within mature mega 1 osch i zonts of H,
me 1eagr i d i s appears to be unique among haemosporidian
parasites. Observations of me ga 1 oschizonts of L.
s i mo nd i and the meg a 1 o s c h i zo n t s of the unidentified
haemosporidian from Northern Bobwhites are most similar to
those of this study. Desser (1970a) reported a capsule
around mega losch i zon t s of s i mo n d i composed of a meshwork
of reticular fibers and an outer fibrous layer. The
capsule was external to the host cell plasma membrane.
Desser and Falls (1967) suggested that it was primarily of
host origin and probably secreted by fibroblasts that were
often found surrounding the mega Ioschizonts and their host
cells. Gardiner et a 1 (1984) found that
mega 1oschizonts of the parasite of Northern Bobwhites were
surrounded by a moderately dense, amorphous wall that

The large, evening Bennett trap catches of
specimens of eden i CC hinmani, C. arboricol a and C.
knowlton i suggest that individuals of these species are
primarily crepuscular with major peaks in biting
activity near sunset. Since sampling with the Bennett
traps was restricted primarily to the 2 hours preceding and
following sunset, peaks of activity at other times of
the day would have been missed. However, the limited
amount of Bennett trapping that was done at night, at dawn
and during the day did not detect any major periods of
activity.
Peak evening collections of specimens of O hinmani
were consistently and significantly earlier than
collections of the other species (p < 0.05). Differences
among mean capture times for specimens of eden i C.
arboricol a and knowltoni were not consistent from
quarter to quarter or site to site. The large amount of
overlap among capture times for individuals of these
species and the correspondingly large standard deviations
for mean capture times at each quarter and site, suggests
that the differences are not biologically significant.
The Bennett trap catches and the CC>2_baited suction
trap catches of specimens of edeni and hinmani
were similar at Fisheating Creek. Individuals of both
species had peaks in their biting/host-seeking activity in
the forest canopy during the 2-hour sampling period that


152
occurred by 20 DPI. Gametocytes were cleared from the
circulation by 36 DPI. The Ring-necked Pheasant that
developed a patent infection proved to be the least
susceptible to me 1eag r i d i s The parasitemia reached
a peak of only 22 parasites per 10,000 red blood cells
at 20 DPI and was cleared from the peripheral
circulation by 26 DPI (Figure 59).
The 2 turkeys inoculated in the second series of
experimental infections were the only birds that developed
patent infections of me 1 e a g r i d i s The Northern
Bobwhites, chickens and all negative control birds remained
negative throughout the course of the experiment.
Morphometric Analysis
Macrogametocytes. Macrogametocytes from each of
the infected host species were morphologically similar
(Figures 60, 62, 64). All completely encircled the host
cell nucleus and were consistent with descriptions of
neotypes of me 1eagridis (Greiner and Forrester, 1980).
The average adjusted cell area of macrogametocytes from the
turkey was larger than that of macrogametocytes from either
the Chuckar or the Ring-necked Pheasant (Table 12).
Average values of other adjusted variables were within 1
standard deviation of each other (Table 12).

and 20 DPI lacked similar deposits. Spleen sections
from all 4 birds had extensive areas of follicular
hypoplasia caused by a large reduction in the size of
the periarterial lymphatic sheaths. Numerous mature and
ruptured schizonts were present in reticular cells in
the spleen of 1 bird. These schizonts were smaller in
diameter and lacked the thick, hyaline wall that surrounded
megaloschizonts from muscle tissue (Figures 31, 32). Most
averaged from 10 to 15 urn in diameter and contained small,
spherical zoites, less than 1 urn in diameter. A few
contained elongate zoites.
Heart sections from 1 bird had several thrombi with
associated giant cells and a single, large mega 1oschizont.
Incidental findings in lung tissue from 3 of the 4
birds included the presence of large granulomas composed of
giant cells, mononuclear cells and heterophils that
surrounded large, amorphous eosinophilic central cores.
Fungal hyphae resembling As pe r gi 11u s sp. were evident
in sections from 1 bird. Epithelial cells lining alveolar
capillaries were hypertrophic and associated capillaries
were congested. A fibrino-hemorrhagic exudate containing
macrophages and heterophils flooded alveolar spaces. Some
large blood vessels were occluded by thrombi. Sections of
air sacs of 1 bird and mesentery of another had similar
granulomas that surrounded eosinophilic masses
containing fungal hyphae.

included sunset. Suction trap catches of specimens of
C. e d e n i and hinmani fell rapidly in numbers
following twilight and remained low until after sunrise,
when catches of individual hinmani had a second, smaller
increase in numbers. Individuals of both species were
active at lower levels during the day on 1 or more of the 3
collection dates .
Few specimens of eden i and no specimens of C.
h'nmani were captured in the CC>2-baited suction traps
operated near the ground. However, the numbers of
individual eden i observed on the exposed sentinel
turkeys during the day, as well as the high prevalence
of transmission of me 1 e a g r i d i s to sentinel birds
caged on the ground, indicates that ground-level biting
activity occurred. The ground traps may have been located
in a poor position or the technique may not have been
sensitive enough to detect low numbers of Cu 1 icoi des. Snow
(1955) noted that biting activity of individuals of C.
paraensis, C. spinosus and borinqueni spread upward
along the main trunk of the tree and then outward into the
canopy during the day. Since the ground traps were not
positioned near tree trunks, they would not have
detected similar movements by specimens of eden i or
C. hinmani Other studies have found distinct differences
in the vertical distribution of Cu 1 icoides species in
forest habitat (Snow, 1955; Bennett, I960; Service,

thickenings beneath the pellicle (Figure 84). As the buds
became more elongate, apical organelles including polar
rings, electron dense rhoptries and subpe1 1 i cu 1 ar
microtubules differentiated from the sporoblast body
(Figure 8S). One budding sporozoite had at least 18
subpe 11 i cu 1 ar microtubules in cross section (Figure
85). The pellicle of developing sporozoites consisted
of an outer unit membrane that was underlaid by 2 unit
membranes in close apposition to one another (Figure 85).
Large nuclei were located at the periphery of the
sporoblast body, underneath the budding sporozoites.
Remnants of the apical complex of the ookinete, consisting
of an electron dense canopy and supporting microtubules
were present within the sporoblast (Figure 84). Large
lipid-like vesicles were clustered near the center of
the sporoblast body (Figure 84).
As sporozoites completed budding, the sporoblast body
became progressively smaller, leaving a residual mass
composed of large, lipid-like vesicles and amorphous
cytoplasm (Figure 86). At maturity, oocysts ruptured,
liberating sporozoites into the haemocoel of the
insect. Ruptured oocysts contained the degenerating
remnants of the residual body (Figure 87).

with several peaks between April and November of each
year. Culico ides arboricola was captured rarely in Bennett
traps and had only 1 major peak in biting activity in May,
1984 (Figure 18).
Culicoide s knowlton i was primarily a late-spring,
early-summer species, with major peaks in abundance and
biting activity between April and July, 1983, and May and
June, 1984. Fall peaks in biting activity and abundance
occurred in October, 1984.
Estimation of Prevalence
Between May, 1982, and April, 1983, unengorged
specimens of Culicoi des captured in Bennett traps at Paynes
Prairie were dissected and examined for sporozoites in the
salivary glands. Seventeen of 17 specimens of C nanus, 9
of 9 C crepuscu1aris, 33 of 33 C^ arbor ico1 a and 12 of 12
C h i n m a ni were negative for salivary gland
sporozoites. Sporozoites were found in a single,
unengorged specimen of C^ edeni, captured on 25 August,
1982, at Site A. Dissections of 209 other unengorged
specimens of C^ edeni, collected between May and April were
negative. Unfortunately, an uninfected recipient turkey
was not available for inoculation of the sporozoites to
confirm their identification.

o£ O nubecu1osus but neither the avian host nor the
vector are available to workers in this country.
Currently, vectors have been reported for fewer than
10% of the described species of Haemoproteus (Table 1).
Five of these, i.e. co1umb a e, H. sacharovi, H.
ma c c a 1 1 um i H lophortyx and FL pa 1 umb i s have been
transmitted by the bite of hippoboscid flies. The
remaining 7 species are presumed to be transmitted by
ceratopogonid flies in the genus Cu 1 ico i de s Several
workers have reported complete development of the
sporogonic stages in 8 species of Cu 1 icoi des and have
transmitted the parasite by i ntraperitonea1 or intravenous
inoculation of sporozoites into suitable, uninfected hosts
(Bennett et al., 1965; Kahn and Fa 1 I is, 1971; Miltgen
et al, 1981; Atkinson et al., 1983). Transmission by
bite has not been demonstrated for any haemoproteid in
this group.
The discovery that hippoboscid flies could transmit
Haemoproteus their common occurrence on birds and the
morphological similarities among gametocytes of various
species, led to the early assumption that this group was
fairly homogeneous. The recent advances in understanding
of the complex life cycles of cyst forming coccidian
parasites such as Sarcocystis and Toxop1 a sma, has
demonstrated that sporozoan life cycles are far more


229
under hormonal control and occurs in conjuction with the
reproductive cycles of their avian hosts (Haberkorn, 1968;
Desser et al., 1968; Rogge, 1968; Applegate, 1970).
Transmission of the parasites occurs during a relatively
short period when recently hatched, susceptible young
are leaving their nests, when vector populations have
increased with the onset of warmer weather and when the
older adult population, with chronic, relapsing infections,
is available as a reservoir of infection (Janovy, 1966;
Falls and 3ennett, 1966).
The more temperate climate at Paynes Prairie, the
smaller and more variable vector populations and the lower
prevalence of infection in the host population are similar
to conditions of hyperendemic, unstable malaria
(Wernsdorfer, 1980). Wide variations in the prevalence of
infection may occur, depending on environmental conditions,
host density and vector abundance and bionomics. However,
in contrast to the more unstable, epidemic transmission of
other avian blood parasites in northern North America,
transmission can remain high throughout most of the year.

Fine Structure
For the most part, u1trastructura 1 studies of the
genus Haemoproteus have been limited to the mature and
exf 1 age 11 ating gametocytes of columbae Work by
Bradbury and Roberts (1970), Bradbury and Trager (1968a,
1968b), Gallucci (1974a, 1974b) and Sterling and Aikawa
(1973) has demonstrated that the morphology of these stages
is consistent with that of other haemosporidians.
Studies of the ookinetes of co 1 umbae and velans
have shown that they are similar to each other in structure
and organization, but with several important differences.
Gallucci (1974b) hypothesized that the ookinete is a
conservative stage in the life cycle of the parasite,
since it is produced sexually and more likely to retain
the organelles of its primitive ancestor. Hence,
differences between the ookinetes of these 2 species may
lend credence to the idea that haemoproteids transmitted
by Cu 1 i coi des belong in a separate taxonomic group.

saline or Aedes aegypti ringers (Hayes, 1953). The flies
were removed from their cartons with an aspirator and
blown into a small petri dish containing saline and a
drop of Triton 100 X (Fisher Scientific). The specimens
of Culico ides were then transferred to a glass microscope
slide and identified by wing pattern under a dissecting
scope (Blanton and Wirth, 1979). The salivary glands
and midgut were carefully removed with fine dissecting
pins (minuten nadeln) in a drop of saline, covered with
a coverslip and examined at 400X for oocysts and
sporozoites with Norma r ski contrast interference
microscopy. Questionable identifications of individual
specimens of Culicoides were confirmed after dissected
flies had been cleared overnight in liquid phenol and
mounted on a microscope slide in a drop of 50% liquid
phenol and 50% Canada balsam. Engorged midguts were
smeared on glass slide, air dried, fixed in absolute
methanol and stained with Giemsa as described earlier.
Measurements of ookinetes were made from camera lucida
drawings and adjusted to scale with a slide micrometer.
Domestic poults were infected by drawing salivary
glands containing sporozoites into the needle of a
tuberculin syringe and injecting them int r ape r i tonea 1 1 y
(IP) or intravenously (IV) into uninfected poults. Whole
flies were also ground in 0.85% saline, Aedes aegypti
ringers (Hayes, 1953) or RPMI tissue culture medium

underwent a number of cleavages to increase the surface
area available for merozoite budding. Since they did
not observe the detachment of separate nucleated masses
from the parent schizont, they suggested that the term
" p s eudocy t ome r e11 as described by Garnham (1951) should
be applied to descriptions of co1umbae.
Based on their study of mature merozoites of H.
co1umbae and their comparisons to merozoites of other
haemosporidia, Bradbury and Gallucci (1972) felt that
Ha emoproteu s and P1 a smodium were more closely related
than Leucocytozoon Mature merozoites of both PI asmod i um
and Haemoproteus appear structurally identical, while
those of Leucocytozoon differ in number of limiting
membranes, overall shape, absence of cytostomes and absence
of a mitochondrion associated spherical body (Bradbury
and Gallucci, 1972).
Studies of the sporogonic stages of avian
haemoproteids have been limited to the sporozoites of
H. co1umbae. Klei ( 1972) and Klei and DeGiusti (1973)
failed to find significant differences between the
structure of these sporozoites and those of other
haemosporidians The only u1trastructura 1 study of a
haemoproteid oocyst was conducted by Sterling and DeGiusti
(1974) on metchnikovi a parasite of turtles that is
transmitted by the tabanid fly, Chrysops ca11idus. The

Meteorological data for the study sites at Paynes
Prairie and Fisheating Creek were obtained from the nearest
weather stations, operated on a continuous basis
(Climatological Data: Florida, 1982, 1983, 1984). In
northern Florida, data were obtained from the U.S. weather
station operated at the Gainesville airport, located
approximately 8 km N of the study areas at Paynes Prairie.
In southern Florida, data were obtained from the U.S.
weather station at LaBelle, approximately 24 km SVV of
the study site at Fisheating Creek.
Activity Cycles
Capture times were determined for specimens of C.
edeni, C. hinmani, C. arbor¡cola and C^ knowltoni obtained
in Bennett traps at Paynes Prairie and Fisheating Creek.
Capture times for individual specimens of Cu 1 icoi des were
calculated as the midpoint of the Bennett trap run when
they were collected. The data were plotted by species,
site, year and quarter (January-March, April-June,
Ju1y-September and October-December) as the number of
minutes before or after nautical sunset on the date of
capture. Sunset times were calculated from standard tables
(Nautical Almanac, Nautical Almanac Office, U.S. Naval
Observatory) and adjusted for the proper latitude and
longitude of each study site. Scatter plots for
individuals of each species were very similar when examined

Mesaloschizont s
Mature, 19-day-old mega 1osch¡zonts were extracellular
and surrounded by a thick, laminated cyst wall composed of
electron dense, amorphous material (Figure 88). Host
tissue adjacent to megaloschizonts was necrotic and
infiltrated with phagocytic cells (Figure 88). The region
between healthy muscle tissue and megaloschizonts contained
large quantities of amorphous, granular material with
the same electron density as the cyst wall (Figure 88),
membranous vesicles, free mitochondria with swollen and
ruptured cristae and scattered fragments of myofibrils.
Many mitochondria were opaque and electron dense. The
amo rphous, granular material exterior to the
megaloschizonts appeared to be deposited in layers onto the
outer surface of the cyst wall (Figure 88). Phagocytic
cells adjacent to ruptured megaloschizonts were often
packed with merozoites.
Megaloschizonts contained merozoites that developed as
buds from discrete cytomeres (Figure 89). The
merozoites were bound by a single unit membrane that was
underlaid by an interrupted intra-membranous layer composed
of 2 unit membranes in close apposition to one another
(Figure 89). Merozoites had 3 anterior polar rings, a pair
of electron-dense rhoptries, micronemes, a nucleus bound by
2 unit membranes and a single mitochondrion with tubular
cristae (Figures 89, 90, 91). All merozoites also had a

in the biting activity o£ eden i in July and December,
1983, at Site A (Figure 13) and in December, 1982, and May,
1983, at Site B (Figure 14). Transmission did not occur
between May and September, 1982, at either site, in
spite of relatively large, but variable, catches of C.
edeni (Figures 13, 14). Similar anomalies between the
transmission of me 1eagridis to sentinel birds and the
abundance and biting activity of eden i occurred in
October, 1982, and October, 1983, at site B (Figure 14)
when catches of edeni were low, in spite of high rates
of transmission.
Cu 1 icoi de s hinma ni was active only during the
warmer months of the year, between May and October. Both
biting activity and abundance were essentially unimodal in
distribution, with variable peaks between May and
October during periods of active transmission of H.
me 1 eag ridis to sentinel birds. Cu 1 icoi des hinman i wa s
absent during periods of high transmission of H
me 1eagridis in December, 1982, and December, 1983 (Figures
13, 14).
Cu 1 icoi des arbor i col a was absent at both sites in 1983
and 1984 during the cooler winter months of January,
February and March. Peaks in biting activity occurred
in September, 1982, April and September, 1983, and
March, 1984, at each site. Light trap collections during
the same period at Site B had a similar, bi modal

subtropical climate of southern Florida to the more
temperate climate of northern Florida.
The high prevalence of transmission of roe 1eagrid i s
to sentinel turkeys at Fisheating Creek was correlated with
the large number of specimens of edeni that were
captured in light traps and 3ennett traps throughout the
year. The repeated isolations of me 1eagridis from pools
of wild-captured, unengorged specimens of O edeni provide
further evidence of the importance of this species as a
major vector of meleagridis. The conspicuous
absence of individuals of hinmani, C. arbor ico1 a and C.

The low numbers of specimens of eden i that were
captured during abnormally cool, wet weather in February
and March, 1 983 and November, 1984, and the absence of
detectable levels of transmission of me 1eagridi s may be
related. Greiner (pers. c onm.) also failed to detect
transmission of HL meleagridis to sentinel turkeys in
the same area during abnormally wet weather in March and
April, 1978. It is unclear whether the population of
adult Cu 1 icoi des was inactive because of cool temperatures

macrogainetocytes, the endoplasmic reticulum contained a
moderately dense, amorphous material (Figure 68). The
endoplasmic reticulum was occasionally continuous with the
innermost, osmiophilic layer of the pellicle (Figure
68). Ma c r ogame t oc y t e s also contained membrane-bound,
osmiophilic bodies (Figure 67).
Gametocytes contained a single cytostome,
surrounded by 2 electron dense rings (Figure 69). Food
vacuoles containing host cell cytoplasm and limited by the
2 outer membranes of the pellicle formed at the inner
surface of the cytostome, between the 2 electron dense
rings. Other food vacuoles in the macrogametocyte were
bound by a single unit membrane and contained
osmiophilic masses of pigment (Figure 69).
Gametogenes i s
In the earliest stages of gametogenes i s, gametocytes
rounded-up within their host cells (Figures 70, 71,
74). The outer unit membrane of the 3-Iayered pellicle
separated from the parasite and formed membranous vesicles,
coils and whorls or remained free as discrete fragments in
the red blood cell cytoplasm (Figures 70, 72, 73).
Dense granules, approximately the same size and electron
density as free ribosomes, occasionally lined the inner
side of the membrane in a single layer (Figure 73). The

Exoerythrocytic Development
The description of the schizonts of columbae by
A r a g a o (1908) was the first detailed account of the
exoerythrocytic development of any haemosporidian parasite
(Garnham, 1966). In the 77 years since then, little
more has been learned about the exoerythrocytic development
of avian haemop r o teids Because experimental infections
have been difficult to perform for most species of
Haemoproteus, virtually nothing is known about their early
stages of exoerythrocytic development.
The results of this study demonstrate that H.
me 1eagridis undergoes at least 2 generations of schizogony
in skeletal and cardiac muscle of experimentally
infected turkeys. Following i ntraperitonea 1 inoculation,
sporozoites probably gained access to the circulation
via the lymphatic system and became localized in the
rich capillary beds of the skeletal muscle. It is unclear
whether they began their development within capillary
endothelial cells, satellite cells or myofibroblasts. The
early schizogonic stages of Sarcocy s t i s may occur in all 3e
cell types, as well as macrophages, but are most corrmon in
endothelial cells (Entzeroth, 1983; Dubey et al., 1983;
Cawthorn et al., 1983; Leek et al., 1977). The early
schizogonic stages of other cyst-forming sporozoans,


232
8 i ossum-Headed Parakeets, naturally infected with H.
desser i. They noted that development appeared to be within
muscle fibers, rather than cells of the reticuloendothelial
system. In their study, as well as the one by Fanner
( 1965), the mega 1 os ch i zon t s were too large to precisely
determine the type of host cell.
Mature, 5-day-old, first-generation schizonts of H.
me 1eagridis contained elongate zoites that differed in size
and morphology from the pre-erythrocytic merozoites of
mature, 17-day-old, second-generation mega 1 osch i z on t s
(Figures 44, 50). They were approximately the same size as
first-generation hepatic schizonts of simo n di but
lacked the hypertrophied host cell nucleus that is
characteristic of Leucoc y t ozoon infections (Huff,
1942). In addition, first-generation merozoites of
Leucocytozoon are oval to round in shape, rather than
elongate (Desser, 1967, 1974; Akiba et al., 1971; Huff,
1942). The first-generation schizonts of H^ me 1eagridis
were more similar in morphology to the first-generation
schizonts of Sarcocystis (Leek et al., 1977; Dubey et al.,
1983). The small size of schizonts found in the 8-day-old
infection suggests that the first-generation schizonts
ruptured between 5 and 8 days post-infection and
released zoites that initiated a second-generation of
schizogony.

distribution. A bimodal distribution was less evident
in light trap collections from Site A (Figures 13, 14).
Biting activity of a r boricol a was very low or absent
during periods of high transmission of me 1eagridis
between November and December, 1982, and between October
and December, 1983.
Fisheating Creek. Bennett trap and light trap
collections of edeni, C. h i nmani and CL arbor ico1 a from
Fisheating Creek had seasonal patterns that were similar to
catches from Paynes Prairie. Cu 1 icoides edeni remained
active throughout the year, with fewer numbers and lower
biting activity from December, 1982, through March, 1983,
and January and November, 1984, during cooler winter
weather (Figure 18). Ha emopr o t e u s me 1eag ridis was
transmitted at high levels to exposed sentinel birds
between May, 1983, and October, 1984.
Cu 1 icoi des h i nmani and (L arboricola were absent or
present in low numbers from December, 1982 March, 1983,
and from December, 1983, and March, 1984, when average
monthly temperatures were lowest (Figures 17, 18).
Light trap and Bennett trap collections of hinmani were
bimodal in distribution in 1983 with peaks in May and
September. The distribution was more unimodal in 1984.
Light trap collections of arborico1 a were variable
throughout 1983 and 1984, but were essentially unimodal

cells from the turkey underwent the greatest enlargement.
Cells from all 3 hosts also had atrophied nuclei with
smaller lengths, widths and areas than nuclei from
unparasitized red blood cells (Table 18). Infected host
cells from the Ring-necked Pheasant underwent the greatest
nuclear atrophy.
A discriminant analysis was performed on adjusted
variables from a calibration data set composed of
measurements of 15 Chuckar cells infected with
ma crogametocytes 15 infected turkey cells and 7
infected pheasant cells. It correctly identified 73.3% of
the Chuckar scores, 66.7% of the turkey scores and none of
the pheasant scores. Three (42.9%) of the pheasant scores
were identified as Chuckar and 3 (42.9%) were identified as
turkey percentages approximately equal to what would
be expected by chance alone (Table 19). One pheasant score
failed to meet the criteria for inclusion in any of the
3 categories.
The derived function was tested with a smaller data
set composed of adjusted measurements of 4 host cells from
the Chuckar and turkey and 3 host cells from the pheasant.
Three (75%) of the Chuckar scores were classified as turkey
and 2 (66.7%) of the pheasant scores were classified as
Chuckar. Two (50%) turkey scores were correctly
identified, but the classification was only slightly
less than would be expected by chance alone (Table 20).

a dense ring anterior to the ribs rather than from a polar
ring, as is true of most sporozoans. Additional studies
of the ookinetes of ve 1ans or other haemoprote i ds
transmitted by Cu 1 icoi des are needed to determine whether
these differences are important.
Few studies of the schizonts and sporogonic stages
of avian haemoproteids have been conducted. Bradbury
and Gallucci (1971, 1972) examined the fine structure
of schizonts and differentiating merozoites of H.
co1umbae. They clarified a number of inconsistencies
and errors made by Aragao (1908 ) in his description of
schizonts from lung tissue in a Rock Dove. Bradbury and
Gallucci (1972) failed to find evidence of sexual
dimorphism in the schizonts they examined and suggested
that the differential staining noted by Aragao (1908)
was probably due to differences in stage of development.
Desser (1970a) described a conspicuous sexual dimorphism
in merozoites of Leucocy tozoon s imond i but Bradbury and
Gallucci (1971) failed to find similar differences among
mature merozoites of columbae
Bradbury and Gallucci (1971) also clarified the use
of the term "cytomere". Aragao (1908) and later Bray
(1960) used the term to refer to development of separate,
uninucleate masses that eventually underwent extensive
nuclear division to produce merozoites. Bradbury and
Gallucci (1971) found that the schizonts of H. coIumbae

his help with holding and bleeding birds and for his unique
sense of humor.
Finally, 1 would like to reserve a special
acknowledgement for my fellow graduate student, Lora G.
Rickardfor help with catching Cu 1 icoi des, holding turkeys
and swatting mosquitoes at Fisheating Creek and Paynes
Prairie, for all the stimulating discussions about worms
and protozoans and, most of all, for her friendship.

polarization of mi c r ogame t ocy t e s of me 1eagridis into
2 halves was not observed. Atypical centrioles were not
detected, but they may have been missed since serial
sections were not cut.
Microgametes of me 1easridis were similar to
microgametes of other species of Haemoproteus .
Microgametes of most other species contain a single axoneme
and a small, membrane-bound nucleus. Mitochondria have not
been observed (Aikawa and Sterling, 1974a; Sterling, 1972;
Desser, 1972a). Bradbury and Trager (1968a) observed 2
axonemes in mi c r ogame t e s of co 1 umbae but these
observations have not been confirmed (Aikawa and Sterling,
1974a). The periodic striations observed in the central
microtubules of axonemes of me 1eagridis have been
reported in axonemes of me t c h nik o v i and si mo n di
(Sterling, 1972; Aikawa et al., 1970).
Oocyst s
Most ultrast ructuraI studies of the oocysts of
haemosporidian parasites have been limited to avian and
mammalian species of PI a smodium (Mehlhorn et al., 1980;
Sinden and Strong, 1978; Canning and Sinden, 1973; Howells
and Davies, 1971; Terzakis, 1971; Terzakis et al., 1966;
Duncan et al., 1960) and to 3 species of Leucocy tozoon
Oes ser and Allison, 1 979; Wong and Desser, 1 976 ;
Desser, 1972c). In spite of the importance of comparative


48
for specimens of e d e n i C a r bo cicola and C.
know 1 toni were less clear and varied from quarter to
quarter. At Fisheating Creek, mean capture times for
specimens of arborico1 a and knowltoni were not
significantly different during any quarter. However,
the peak biting activity for specimens of edeni was
significantly earlier than specimens of arboricola
during quarters 2 and 4, but not during quarters 1 and 3.
At Paynes Prairie, specimens of edeni had a peak capture
time that was significantly earlier than specimens of C.
arboricola during quarters 3 and 4, but not during quarter
1. During quarter 2, specimens of eden i had a peak
in activity that was significantly later than specimens of
C. arbor ico1 a (Table 7).
In spite of these differences, the same trend was
evident at each site. Specimens of hinmani reached a
peak in biting activity before sunset. They were followed
from 0 to 19 minutes after sunset by specimens of C.
edeni. Specimens of arboricola were most active from 8
to 55 minutes after sunset. Specimens of knowltoni were
the last to become active between 26 and 51 minutes
after sunset. When mean capture times for individuals
of each species are compared between Paynes Prairie and
Fisheating Creek, differences are usually within 1 standard
deviation of each other.

Microscopic observations spontaneous deaths. The
most significant lesions found in tissues from the 4
spontaneous deaths were in the skeletal muscles. All 4
birds had numerous intact and degenerating, fusiform
me ga 1 oschizonts between the muscle fibers. The
schizonts ranged from 43 to 155 urn in diameter with a mean
diameter of 95.0 urn (n = 35, SD = 34.67). Depending on the
plane of section, they ranged up to 600 urn in length. Most
mega 1 oschizonts were oriented parallel to the muscle
fibers, although a few were perpendicular. Many were
outlined by a thick, hyaline wall which occasionally
indented slightly to form node-like constrictions (Figures
22, 23).
Mature mega 1 oschizonts were packed with small,
spherical merozoites less than 1 urn in diameter. Each
contained a small mass of chromatin. Some immature
mega 1 oschizonts contained irregularly shaped cytomeres
of different sizes that were located next to the cyst
wall. Chromatin masses were arranged around the periphery
of each cytomere. Other mega 1oschizonts were packed
with round, granular, dark blue cytomeres. As
mega 1oschizonts matured, the number of cytomeres increased
in inverse proportion to their diameter. Merozoites
developed as buds from the outer surface of the cytomeres.
A severe hemorrhagic myositis was associated with the
mega 1 osch i zonts Ruptured schizonts were surrounded by

Leucocytozoon in reticular cells of the spleen (Huff, 1969;
Akiba et al., 1971). Host cell nuclei of the reticular
schizonts were not hypertrophied as is characteristic of
Leucocytozoon infections.
The reductions in growth and weight gain in
experimentally infected birds were dose dependent and most
pronounced between 1 and 3 weeks post-infection,
during development of second-generation
mega 1 oschizonts (Figures 37, 38). The onset of lameness
and anorexia in the high dose birds was approximately 1
week later than in the earlier series of experimental
infections and was probably associated with the
infla mm atory response to the second-generation
mega 1oschizonts. Because high dose birds received fewer
than 1/3 as many sporozoites as birds that were infected to
study exoerythrocytic development, pathological changes
associated with development of the f i rst-gene r a t i on
schizonts may not have been as severe.
Following the crisis, all infected birds improved.
This was most evident among turkeys in the high dose group
that exhibited little significant weight gain between weeks
0 and 2, between weeks 1 and 3 and between weeks 3 and 4

Garnharn (1951) to describe them. Bray (1960) attempted to
resolve differences between the terms "cytomere" and
"pseudo-cytornere" and simplify terminology by redefining
cytomeres as "separate growing nucleated masses,
produced within a process of schizogony by the division of
a schizont.". He stated that the process "may produce
further cytomeres but produces uninucleated organisms as an
end point." Unfortunately, the redefinition has not
been widely accepted. Most authors have applied the
term "pseudo-cytomere" to descriptions of schizonts that
contain mu 11 i nuc1eated masses of protoplasm that remain
attached to the parent schizont (Bradbury and Gallucci,
1972; Sterling and DeGiusti, 1972). Since knowledge of the
entire developmental sequence is required to determine
whether a mu 1 t i nuc 1 ea t ed mass developed from a separate
uninucleate body or from a multinucleated mass that
detached late in development from the parent body, use
of either term may be misleading when the complete
morphogenesis is unknown.
During the development of second-generation
mega 1 oschizonts of meleagridis, cytomere formation
occurred between 8 and 14 days pos t-i n f ect i on At the
present time it is not possible to determine whether the
cytomeres developed by segmentation of the mu I tinuc1eate
8-day-old schizonts into uninucleate masses or by
detachment of multinucleated masses from the parent body.

formation of sporozoite buds from a single residual body

Ha emop r oteu s me 1eag rid i s was first reported in a
domestic turkey, Me 1eagris ga11opavo, in Texas by Morehouse
( 1945). Since then, this parasite has been found in wild
and domestic turkeys throughout the Nearctic range of
the host and in Venezuela (Greiner and Forrester, 1980).
Eve et al. (1972) and Eve et al. (1972) speculated that
H, me 1eag ridis might be a potential pathogen of wild and
domestic birds. Much of the evidence for this was circum
stantial, at best, and based on observations that high
parasitemias seemed to coincide with periods of high
mortality in wild birds.
The existence of a domesticated host that is
inexpensive and available throughout the year has made
H. me 1eagridis an attractive laboratory model for the
study of avian haemoproteids. Until recently this model
has not been feasible because the vectors of hU me 1eagridis
have been unknown. In a survey of ectoparasites from

Leek et al. ( 1977) observed a significant drop in total
serum protein in lambs infected with Sa rcocys tis The
decrease occurred during development of first-generation
schizonts in endothelial cells. Leek et al. suggested that
the drop in serum protein levels resulted from
glomerulonephritis associated with development of schizonts
in endothelial cells of the kidneys. Similar lesions were
not detected in infected birds examined in this experiment.
The increase in plasma protein concentrations in
the high dose group at 2 weeks pos t-i nf ect ion may have been
related to dehydration observed among these turkeys (Figure
40). Augustine (1982) noted similar increases in plasma
protein concentrations when turkeys were deprived of water
for periods of up to 72 hours. Wien birds were deprived of
both food and water, significant changes in plasma protein
concentrations did not occur. Since feed consumption
was not measured in the pathogenicity experiment, it is
unclear whether the high dose birds ceased eating and/or
drinking completely. The diarrhea associated with the
concurrent S a 1 inon ella infection may have acted in
conjunction with decreases in food and water consumption to
dehydrate the birds and concentrate total plasma proteins.
The increase in average plasma protein
concentration at 5 and 6 weeks post-infection may
reflect the synthesis of immunoglobulins (Figure 40).

Bennett trap catches. Of the 5 species of Cu 1 icoi des
capable of supporting development of me 1 eagridis,
individuals of only 4 species, O edeni, C. hinma ni C.
a r borico1 a and knowltoni were captured in sufficient
numbers to permit analysis of their times of capture. A
scatter plot of capture times for specimens of C.
hinmani from 2.5 hours before sunset to 2.5 hours after
sunset was unimodal with a peak at 41.6 minutes before
sundown (Figure 7). Scatter plots of capture times for
specimens of edeni, C. arboricola and O knowltoni were
also unimodal, but average peaks were 10.3, 19.2 and
28.3 minutes after sundown, respectively (Figures 8, 9,
10).
Comparisons of mean capture times among individuals of
the 4 species revealed the same trends at each site (Paynes
Prairie and Fisheating Creek) and during each quarter
(January March, April June, July September, October -
December) (Table 7). Specimens of C^ hinmani had a peak in
biting activity from 24 to 59 minutes before sunset that
was significantly earlier than individuals of the other

chickens reacted as well to their protein counterparts
from turkeys as they did to their protein counterparts from
Ring-Necked Pheasants. They briefly reviewed other
evidence from hybridization experiments, chromosome
studies, electrophoretic and inmunolog i ca I experiments and
anatomical studies that supported the similarities between
turkeys and other Phasianids. Since cell penetration
by some sporozoan parasites may be mediated by highly
specific cell surface receptors (Miller et al., 1978), the
parasites can, in a sense, be considered as highly specific
probes. The successful experimental transmission of H.
meleagridis from a turkey to a Ring-necked Pheasant and
a Chuckar suggests that all 3 species may have similar cell
surface receptors. Whi 1e these similarities may be of
minor taxonomic significance, they support the data showing
close biochemical similarities among these species.
The family Phasianidae presently contains members of 4
former avian families. Prior to the revision, Bennett

Infected host cells mi crogametocytes Host cells
infected with mi ergame toeytes underwent several common
changes in each host species. All had an increase in
average cell length, width and area and a corresponding
decrease in nucleus length, width and area (Figures 61, 63,
65). A lateral displacement of the host cell nucleus
occurred in parasitized red cells from each host. The
d i s pI ac erne n t was greatest in host cells fr om the
Ring-necked Pheasant and least in host cells from the
Chuckar (Table 21). Differences in infected host cell
morphology were most evident in cells from the
pheasant. Infected red blood cells were rounder than those
from the other host species and the red blood cell nucleus
was often displaced to the outer margin of the host cell.
A discriminant analysis was performed on a calibration
data set composed of adjusted measurements of 15 host
cells, infected with mi crogametocytes, from each host
species. It correctly classified 60% of the Chuckar
scores, 46.7% of the pheasant scores and 60% of the turkey
scores (Table 22) .
The derived function was tested with a smaller data
set composed of adjusted measurements of 4 host cells from
each of the 3 host species. Two (50%) of the Chuckar
scores were classified as Chuckar, 1 (25%) of the turkey
scores was classified as turkey and 4 (100%) of the

Sentinel Study
Paynes Prairie. Between May, 1982, and July, 1984, 30
of 327 (9.2%) sentinel poults at Site A and 32 of 140
(22.9%) sentinel poults at Site B became infected with
H, me 1 eagr i d i s At Site A, 6 of 166 (3.6%) exposed on the
ground vs. 24 of 161 (14.9%) exposed in the canopy
developed patent infections. A 2 by 2, Chi Square test of
the independence of exposure height and transmission was
highly significant (p<0.01).
During 1982, transmission of me 1eagridis began
in mid-August at Site B and m i d-S ep t erab e r at Site A
(Figures 13, 14), peaked from mid-October to
mid-December during periods of above average
temperatures for northern Florida (Figure 15) and
tapered off at the end of December at Site A and in
mid-January at Site B, with the onset of cooler winter
weather in January, 1983 (Figures 15,17). As average
monthly temperatures reached and exceeded 60o F (Figure
17), transmission began again in mid-April, 1983, at Site B
and early May, 1983, at Site A and continued at both
locations throughout the summer and fall until the onset of
cooler, winter weather in mid-December, 1983 (Figures
IS, 17). Deviations from the average monthly rainfall at
Paynes Prairie were minor throughout most of the study.

surrounded 2 central microtubules during the earliest
stages of exf1 age I 1 at i on These were located free in
the cytoplasm in various stages of assembly. One end of
developing axonemes was usually associated with a dense
plaque in the nuclear membrane that usually had associated
intranuclear tubules. Sterling (1972) reported an atypical
centriole embedded in electron dense material adjacent
to the plaque. He observed the attachment of axonemes
to basal bodies that v/ere associated with the atypical
centriole. Aikawa and Sterling (1974a) found that the
intranuclear microtubules extended across the nucleus of
ex flagellating gametocytes of co1umbae to another
electron dense plaque on the opposite side of the
organelle. They observed the condensation of electron
dense material around the base of the plaques and suggested
that this material was eventually incorporated into the
microgamete nucleus. As axonemes began to bud from the
exterior of microgametocytes Aikawa and Sterling
(1974a) described the protrusion of a portion of the
mi c r ogame t ocy t e nucleus to the base of the bud. They
presented micrographs indicating that a portion of the
nucleus, still bound by a nuclear membrane, detached
from the mi ergametocyte nucleus and became incorporated
into the exf1 age 11 ating microgamete as a spiral around the
axonerne. Sterling (1972) described a similar process
during the ex f 1 age 1 1 a t i on of me t chn i Itov i .
