Abstract

The authors of this book argue that evolution has been so complex and historically contingent that robust evolutionary explanations must include phylogenetic information. Clearly setting out the conceptual, methodological and empirical foundations of their research programme, they show how...

Abstract

Parasites are agents of disease in humans, livestock, crops, and wildlife and are powerful representations of the ecological and historical context of the diseases they cause. Recognizing a nexus of professional opportunities and global public need, we gathered at the Cedar Point Biological Station ...

Abstract

Aim: To integrate ecological fitting, the oscillation hypothesis and the taxon pulse hypothesis into a coherent null model for the evolution of complex host-parasite associations. Location: Global. Methods: This paper reviews and synthesizes literature that focuses on phylogenetic analyses and...

Abstract

The phylogeny of the 16 recognized genera in the Bunocotylinae was analysed, based on 30 morphological transformation series. Two most parsimonious trees were produced, each with a consistency index of 0.62. The monophyly of the group is supported by 6 synapomorphies. Ahemiurus, Aphanuroides, ...

Abstract

Traditional wisdom, based on assumptions of species-specific revolutionary interactions between hosts and parasites, suggests that pathogens with multi-host life cycles are unlikely to move with their definitive hosts because their transmission requirements are so specialized. Ecological fitting...

Abstract

This paper is designed to show how precisely coevolution's influence can be documented by use of phylogenetic methods. The methods outlined in this article make it possible to estimate when particular host-parasite associations originated, to what extent host and parasite phylogenies are...

Abstract

We examine the evolution of host specificity for species of Telorchis, using the methods developed by researchers studying phytophagous insect-plant systems. Optimization of "generalist" compared with "specialist" onto the phylogeny for Telorchis revealed ambiguous patterns, depending on how the 2...

Abstract

Phylogeny of, and host-parasite relationships between, lice (Heterodoxus octoseriatus group) and rock wallabies (Petrogale spp.) in eastern Australia were investigated to test models of host-parasite coevolution [see e.g. D.R. Brooks (1979) Systematic Zoology, 28: 299-307; (1988) Annual Review of...

Abstract

The possible role of parasite systematics in the 21st century is discussed with reference to the Global Taxonomy Initiative and its 3 structural components: systematic inventory, predictive classifications and systematic knowledge databases. Misconceptions about modern systematics that may have...

Abstract

Species allocated to the digenean genera Enenterum, Feancadenatia, Cadenatella and Koseiria form a clade within the Lepocreadiidae whose sister group is a clade comprising Neoallolepidapedon, Callogonotrema, Allolepidapedon and Bulbocirrus. Phylogenetic analysis of the Enenterinae based on...
