Abstract

Abstract.

To better understand the ecology of in the northeastern Peruvian Amazon, we evaluated the prevalence of and other trypanosomatids in four orders of wild mammals hunted and consumed by inhabitants of three remote indigenous communities in the Peruvian Amazon. Of 300 wild mammals sampled, 115 (38.3%) were infected with trypanosomatids and 15 (5.0%) with The prevalence of within each species was as follows: large rodents (, 5.5%; spp., 2.6%), edentates (, 4.2%), and carnivores with higher prevalence (, 18.8%). The high prevalence of and other trypanosomatids in frequently hunted wild mammals suggests a sizeable sylvatic reservoir in remote Amazonian locations.
