DescriptionThis dataset was compiled during wild bird disease surveillance in Scotland between 1994 and 2013, and contains images of nematodes (syngamid worms, spirurid worms, hairworms and roundworms), their eggs and associated pathology in raptors. A searchable list of images is provided in a Word document, and the images and captions are presented together in two PDF documents. Individual images are included in JPEG format. Images from other avian groups, including those that contributed to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine & Surgery (DVM&S) thesis "Diseases of wild birds of the Orders Passeriformes and Columbiformes - a review of conditions reported from the United Kingdom and an analysis of results from wild bird disease surveillance in Scotland 1994-2013" (Thomas Pennycott) can be found in this Collection at http://datashare.is.ed.ac.uk/handle/10283/2033 .
