Biological contamination of soils in urbanized ecosystems by Toxocara sp. eggs.

As a result of the study of three sites (two city parks and a special area for walking dogs) on the contamination of Toxocara sp. eggs it was found that 28.0±2.3% of the studied fecal samples from the territories of the Kirov Park were infected with Toxocara eggs, 21.0±3.6% of fecal samples from the territory of the Park of the 50th anniversary of the Komsomol and 7.0±0.4% of fecal samples were infected with Toxocara eggs selected at a specially equipped dog walking area in the Metrograd residential complex in Kirov. The average rate of dogs which were infected by Toxocara (EI) was 18.7±6.2%. The average rate of contamination of soil by eggs Toxocara in the study sites amounted to 34.6%. Contamination of soil samples with eggs of Toxocara sp. in parks was 45.6% and 45.8%, respectively, and in the dog walking area it was 12%. The largest number of dogs, including stray ones, were registered in the parks: 74.8±7.1 and 62.8±7.0 individuals, respectively. There were no stray individuals in the dog walking area, and there were 21.6±1.0 individuals over the entire study period. © The Authors, published by EDP Sciences, 2020.
