It is accepted that a fair degree of completeness is being achieved in our knowledge of North American mammals and birds. It can be assumed that nearly all the described species of the higher vertebrates are parasitized by helminths, but many of these helminths probably remain undescribed, and little is known of their geographical distribution. Very little information is available on the incidence of the parasites, or their effect on the host.
