A Megafauna’s Microfauna: Gastrointestinal Parasites of New Zealand’s Extinct Moa (Aves: Dinornithiformes)

Figure 4

Network diagrams of identified moa - parasite interactions.

(a) interactions between moa species and parasite egg types, based on morphological identification of parasite eggs from 84 coprolites; (b) interactions between moa species and DNA sequence groups, based on DNA identifications of parasites from a subset of 16 coprolites. Parasite boxes are scaled relative to overall prevalence in analysed coprolite assemblages and moa bones are proportional to the number of coprolites analysed from each species/locality. Localities (in parentheses) are: O, Central Otago; D, Dart River Valley; E, Euphrates Cave.
