From: Gastrointestinal parasites in an isolated Norwegian population of wild red deer (Cervus elaphus)

Parasite species Mean proportion of the different species (males only) [95% CI for the mean] Mean proportion of major morphs [95% CI for the mean]
Spiculopteragia spiculoptera/mathevossiani 64.5 [43.0-86.0] 93.4 [80.0-100.0]
Ostertagia leptospicularis/kolchida 26.4 [9.3-43.4] 71.9 [45.0-98.9]
Trichostrongylus axei 9.2 [-2.8-20.7] Not applicable
  1. The 95% confidence interval (CI) for the mean proportions are shown.
