Abstract

Parasite Diversity of Lizards found in Amuyong Forest, Alfonso, Cavite Philippines was studied from July 2010 to January 2011. Five species were observed (Cyrtodactylus philippinicus, Gekko mindorensis, Sphenomorphous jagori, and Bracymeles talinis). Threadworms and pinworms (Spauligodon spp.) were determined as the most common parasite load of lizard in the area. Nematode was present in C. philippinicus, G. mindorensis, and S. jagori while fluke is only found in S. jagori and B. talinis. Ectoparasite was only seen in G. mindorensis. Lizard parasite diversity is 1.609 (Shannon – Wiener) for the 4 main parasite groups. The Hmax value for lizard distribution is 1.94 while the computed value of the actual lizard distribution is 1.32 (69%). The computed E (evenness value) is 0.959.
