Abstract:In 2014 and 2015, the infection rates and lineage diversity of avian blood parasites were surveyed in the raptors in/around Beijing. Based on nest PCR examination, only 7.94% of the raptors (n=126) were infected. A total of7 lineages were identified by DNA sequencing of Cyt b and phylogenetic analysis. Comparing to MalAvi database, 3 Haemoproteus lineages were newly reported and 2 lineages were first discovered in Strigiformes.
