Este grupo de protozoarios cuenta con mas de 30 especies de coccidias
de ciclo homoxeno o heteroxeno facultativo que afectan a reptiles y aves depredadoras (Duszynki y Morrow 2014).

was the most prevalent (69.2%) and more abundant oocyte (34.15, n = 13) among the samples analyzed (Table 1).
After multiple infections, surviving chickens become resistant to the coccidia
They also do a magnificent job of highlighting the need for standardized non-morphological characters to be used in new descriptions for coccidia
, such as location and liming of sporulation, host-specificity, length of prepatent and patent periods, and resulting pathology of infection with various life stages, and include summaries of how these data have contributed to the recognition or rejection of each taxon within its representative entry.
Cats living in crowded conditions, such as shelters or group housing, may be predisposed to coccidia
infection, both due to stress and the difficulty in keeping the premises free of infective oocysts.
In this case, the infestation with coccidia
, common intestinal parasites in rabbits that can cause emaciation, may have contributed to the massive mycobacterial infection.
All goats were naturally infected with parasites by allowing them to graze an adjacent bahiagrass pasture infected with L-3 stage larvae of GIN and coccidia
infective oocysts from 0800 to 1500 h daily and then returned to the pens where the same diets as in Experiment 1 were offered for ad libitum consumption (110% of the previous day intake).
1/14 (7.1%; 1.7-31.9%) Coccidia
(Family Eimeriidae) 4/14 (28.6%; 11.8-55.1%) Entamoeba spp.
Indeed, extensively managed pigs are reported to harbor intestinal helminthes and protozoans  while pigs raised in intensive operations though thought to be less prone to gastrointestinal infestation are infested as well; the large roundworm (Ascaris suum), whipworm (Trichuris suis), the nodular worms (Oesophagostomum sp), and protozoa (Coccidia
) are often found in intensive pig production [8, 9].

oocysts have a remarkable ability to survive in exogenous environment making its control by common disinfectants difficult .
