The positive association between the number of canine faeces and the human density is important to draw the attention of community administratives to the regular cleaning of the streets in areas of highest human population.
The presence of canine faeces and their contamination with parasitic elements are neither unusual nor unexpected findings in urban areas worldwide (a review of the Italian situation have been recently reported by Poglayen and Marchesi [19]).
Faeces count was modelled as over-dispersed Poisson, using a random effects negative binomial model [21,22].

 Bioconversion of organic residues for rural communities
The amount of faeces that can be preseparated from the hog pen is about 80 - 90 per cent of the total, and subsequent treatment of the remaining mixture of 10 - 20 per cent of faeces and urine by the screw press ensures that all solid wastes are preserved for composting.
The continuous process of composting animal faeces, i.e., semi-drying by heat, composting, mixing with raw faeces, and re-composting, was tested on a small scale for evaluation of the process.
Raw faeces could become an ideal organic resource if a system is developed to remove water content economically without just mixing in rice straws, etc. Compost from raw faeces has been proved, not only by small-scale tests, but also by practical use, to be a good fertilizer as well as a soil conditioner.

However, experts told a one-day consultative meeting of stakeholders at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel on Thursday that faeces can only be applied if they are treated, to avoid contamination.
Moses Kiggundu Muwa-nga, a coordinator with the National Organic Agricultural Movement of Uganda, said faeces must not be directly applied on edible plants, adding that they must be mixed with the soil.

 Why Dogs Eat Faeces?
In the past it was believed that faeces eating, also known as coprophagia, was caused by either poor diet or poor health.
Owners find this habit in their pet disgusting -- particularly when the consumed faeces are thrown up all over the new carpet.
Other products can be applied to the faeces directly; however, dogs are very perceptive and can probably distinguish between tainted and untainted faeces.

 Home-Solving Coprophagia or Faeces-Eating Behaviour In Dogs
The only circumstance in which coprophagia is considered a normal behaviour is when a mother dog (bitch) eats the faeces of her pups from the time of their birth until about 3 weeks of age.
It may also be considered a natural, although not normal, behaviour for dogs to consume the faeces of large herbivores (cows, sheep, goats etc.) containing significant amounts of nutrients remaining after large intestinal fermentation.
The most successful treatment appears to be a combination of eliminating access to faeces and using behavioural modification techniques to reward the dog for desired behaviour (positive reinforcement).

 Summary, WAU dissertation no. 790
The purpose of this investigation was to study the microbiological degradation of the cellulose-hemicellulose-lignin complexes of the faeces of pigs.
In the present investigation attention was centred on the aerobic break-down of the undigested organic residues of pig faeces.
The substrate for the enzymic procedure, the undigested residues of faeces, are adequately degraded when a pretreatment has been applied (grinding to a particle size of 0.08 mm).

 News in Science - Caterpillars fling faeces afar to fool foes - 02/04/2003
Caterpillars shoot their faeces more than a metre from their homes to protect themselves from predators, an American ecologist has discovered.
Weiss hypothesised that accumulating faeces in a shelter would expose the caterpillars to microbial and fungal infections, and ejecting them would maintain hygiene.
However, she found no significant difference between the survival of caterpillars raised in 'dirty' environments, or in 'clean' conditions where the faeces were removed daily.

Test results due in March will determine how much of the pollution in the drains is either human or animal faeces, but the EPA expects the human component to be significant due to the problem of sewage spills.
EPA chairman Mick Bourke said it was the human faeces that was the most concerning, as it was a prime transmitter of illness between people.
The Opposition had warned the Government of the problem of human faeces in the river a year ago, said environment spokesman David Davis, and a 1997 scientific study had showed human material was a significant pollutant in the river.

 Balgownie Veterinary Hospital: Coprophagia (faeces eating)
Research has shown that dogs eating their own faeces are not a health risk either to themselves, or necessarily to humans whose faces and hands they may lick.
For instance, in relation to roundworm infection between dogs and man, this is always rare and does require that the worm eggs he "aged" some three weeks outside the dogs body before becoming infective.
Punishment must be remote and seemingly related to the faeces rather than the owner.

In either case, the interpretation reverts back to Freud?s own feelings that the faeces were perceived by the infant as being something they created and therefore something valuable.

 KHV detected in carp faeces | Practical Fishkeeping magazine
A new study has shown that carp faeces can be analysed to determine whether the fish are carriers of the deadly Koi Herpes Virus.
Not only did the faeces contain viral antigens, which can be used to show that the fish has previously been exposed to the virus, they also carried active virus particles.
The faeces of infected carp were shown in the laboratory to be capable of infecting common carp brain cells, and also of triggering the disease in so-called naiive fish that had not previously encountered KHV before.
