The objectives of the PhD Thesis were to: a) investigate the abundance and population dynamics of ovine eimeriosis under Greek dairy production systems (publication I) taking into account differences between management systems and lambing season; b) study the efficacy of applied chemical treatment protocols (designed to fit common dairy husbandry practices) using both toltrazuril and diclazuril on clinical and parasitological parameters in lambs naturally infected with Eimeria (publication II) and; c) to test the in vivo and in vitro anticoccidial effect of the tanniferous forage legume sainfoin (Onobrychis viciifolia) in lambs (publication III).
