Abstract

Over the past decade, a significant increase in the circulation of infectious agents was observed. With the spread and emergence of epizootics, zoonoses, and epidemics, the risks of pandemics became more and more critical. Human and animal health has also been threatened by antimicrobial...

Abstract

The epidemiology of H5N1 HPAI is still unclear despite the efforts of the research community. Studies bringing new insights add more variability in the host-pathogen system and uncertainty in the prediction of local risks. Global analyses of the pathways of wild birds in parallel with virus...

Abstract

The present review summarized the factors or determinants that may explain parasite diversity among host species and the consequences of this parasite diversity on the evolution of host-life history traits. As host-parasite interactions are asymmetrical exploited-exploiter relationships, ecological ...

Abstract

The polymorphism of DAB genes encoding MHC IIβ was investigated in 11 cyprinid species from central Europe. The species belonged to four subfamilies: Cyprininae, Tincinae, Gobioninae and Leuciscinae. Two paralogous groups of sequences, DAB1 and DAB3, were recognised according to the similarity of...

Abstract

Although competitive speciation is more and more regarded as a plausible mechanism for sympatric speciation of non-parasite species, virtually no empirical or theoretical study has considered this evolutionary process to explain intra-host diversification of parasites. We expanded the theory of...

Abstract

Animals often suffer from multiple parasite attacks in natural conditions (i.e., polyparasitism). The community of these parasites, which simultaneously or sequentially infest given host species, has rarely been investigated as a parasitic pressure per se. From this perspective, and despite the...

Abstract

Patterns associated with the evolution of parasite diversity, speciation and diversification were analysed using Dactylogyrus species (gill monogeneans) and their cyprinid hosts as a model. The aim of this study was to use this highly specific host-parasite systems to review: (1) the diversity and...

Abstract

This book draws the reader's attention to the great diversity of parasites and to the importance of this diversity. It discusses how much is known about parasite diversity, its estimation, its relationship to epidemiology, the role of hosts in its evolution, its relationship with parasite features...

Abstract

Ecological specialization is hypothesized to result from the exploitation of predictable resource bases. For parasitic organisms, one prediction is that parasites of large-bodied host species, which tend to be long-lived, should specialize on these hosts, whereas parasites of small host species,...

Abstract

Patterns and likely processes connected with evolution of host specificity in congeneric monogeneans parasitizing fish species of the Cyprinidae were investigated. A total of 51 Dactylogyrus species was included. We investigated (1) the link between host specificity and parasite phylogeny; (2) the...
