Abstract


Vojvodina is situated in the northern part of Serbia. The region is divided into: Bačka in the northwest, Banat in the east and Srem in the southwest. A small part of the Mačva region is also located in Vojvodina, in the Srem District. Vojvodina is abundant with numerous grasslands suitable for sheep grazing. The present study was conducted in 90 sheep flocks from the territory of Vojvodina in the period of March 2014 to January 2015, using into consideration the biodiversity and sesonal occurance and prevalence of isolated parasites. Fecal samples were examined by using qualitative and quantitative coprological methods. Infection we occurred at 81.22% of sheep. We found eggs of Nematodirus sp. (71.22%), Ostertagia sp. (69.22%), Trichostrongylus sp. (66.55%), Haemonchus sp. (64.44%), Chabertia ovina (60.11%), Dictyocaulus spp. (49.00%), Oesophagostomum sp.(36.77%), Dicrocelium dendriticum (34.66%), Marshallagia sp.
