  1. aEight animals from forest sites, i.e. a female < 1 year, two males < 1 year, and five males ≥ 1 year old were obtained without stomachs, which was taken into account when estimating the infection of wild boars with A. strongylina and P. sexalatus—the gastric parasite species
  2. b, cIn same column, different superscript letters between particular infection rates (P, R, or A) mean significant difference at P < 0.05
