Abstract

Four random probes from a Globodera pallida DNA library and one rDNA repeat probe from flax were used to highlight specific fragments in total DNA restricted with the endonucleases Bam HI, Eco RI, Eco RV, and Hind III, from 26 potato cyst nematode (PCN) populations (G. rostochiensis and G. pallida...

Abstract

This appendix gives a brief overview of methods for the collection of helminth and protozoan parasites of birds, and then discusses collection by anatomical locations of the parasites.

Host-parasite evolution: general principles and avian models., 1997, pp 396-418
Abstract

The genetic relationships between populations of Globodera rostochiensis and G. pallida were analyzed using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD). Only nine of 250 amplified DNA fragments were common to both species. The intraspecific variation was small. The proportions of shared DNA fragments...

Abstract

Three models for the evolution of host-feeding behaviour in parasitoid wasps are developed. The first assumes that the wasp host-feeds purely to obtain resources to mature eggs (limited resource model) while the second assumes that host-feeding provides energy for maintenance (pro-ovigenic model)....

Abstract

Host selection by solitary parasitoids is modelled as a problem in the evolution of life histories. Two kinds of trade-offs are considered: patchy versus fine-grained host distribution and an egg production rate that is either negatively related to adult survival or a fixed constant. These lead to...

Abstract

A two-species genetic model of host-parasite interaction is used to study the dynamical consequences of varying the number of genotypes in each species, and the recombination rate in the host. With 2 genotypes in each species, the model's behaviour is very simple; there is either a stable interior...

Abstract

The 22 chapters of this book, by many authors, discuss: electrophoresis as a technique in the research of evolutionary biology of agricultural pests; electrophoretic studies in population biology; genetic studies of species differences and their relevance to the problem of species formation in ...

Abstract

The history of the impact of the trypanosomiases on the movement of man and his animals into Africa is reviewed. The discoveries and classification of the trypanosomes and their hosts are recapitulated. Diagnostic methods are detailed. Nagana is discussed as the type, with reference to symptoms,...

Abstract

This paper attempts to trace the probable evolution of mammalian trypanosomes. Haemato-phagous insects probably originated from phytophagous and/or predaceous ancestors, the trypano-somatid parasites of which eventually gave rise to trypanosomes. Trypanosomes transmitted by inoculation...

Abstract

Progress in disease control and animal husbandry during the last 25 years is briefly reviewed. Tuberculosis was controlled by a wider use of diagnostic methods and slaughter of affected animals; satisfactory results are reported for the short thermal tuberculin test as a supplementary test in...
