Abstract

The Izumi plain in Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan, is an overwintering site of endangered cranes (hooded cranes and white-naped cranes) and of many other migratory birds (including wild ducks) that are considered carriers of avian influenza viruses (AIVs). To assess the risks of a highly pathogenic...

Abstract

A very significant part of the world's freshwater ichthyofauna is represented by ancient, exceptionally diverse and cosmopolitan ray-finned teleosts of the order Siluriformes. Over the years, catfish have been established as an exemplary model for probing historical biogeography at various scales....

Abstract

Since its emergence in South East Asia in 2003, Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) A/H5N1 has reportedly caused outbreaks in poultry and/or wild birds in 62 countries, of which 24 were in Europe. Interestingly, out of the many genetic clades circulating in Asia, the westward spread of HPAI...

Abstract

The origin and geographical spread of Plasmodium falciparum was determined by analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequence polymorphism and divergence from its most closely related species, P. reichenowi (a rare parasite of chimpanzees). The complete 6-kb mitochondrial genome was sequenced from the...

Abstract

An account is given of the dispersal of Chrysomya megacephala from South-East Asia and Australasia to Africa, South America and Japan, as well as of the origins of the synanthropic form of the fly. The phylogeny of the C. megacephala group is discussed, and keys are presented to distinguish species ...
