The first dataset is the geographical coordinates, host species identity and Echinococcus mutilocularis data of carnivore faeces collected in a rural town and its surroundings in the Eastern part of France (006°26’46”E, 46°56’53”N). Data were collected every two months between March 2017 and November 2018. The figures represent Kulldorff statistics on the spatial distribution of Echinococcus multilocularis via carnivore faeces. The last dataset is a video of microscopic observation and sampling of taeniid eggs one by one with a Leica DMI3000-B micromanipulator.
