Techniques for tracking opossums (Trichosurus vulpecula) by radio telemetry in New Zealand lowland forest

Pracy & Kean (1968) reported finding a cestode in the mid-gut of opossums from western areas of the North Island; this parasite was subsequently described by Khalil (1970) as Bertiella trichosuri. Some observations on the occurence, frequency, and effects of B. trichosuri in opossums from northern Taranaki are presented here.
