Abstract

Parasitic protozoan parasites have evolved many co-evolutionary paths towards stable transmission to their host population. Plasmodium spp., the causative agents of malaria, and related haemosporidian parasites are dipteran-borne eukaryotic pathogens that actively invade and use vertebrate...

Abstract

Surra disease is a zoonosis caused by Trypanosoma (Trypanozoon) evansi, a salivary trypanosome, originally from Africa, which affects a wide range of mammalian worldwide. Dogs are highly susceptible to T. evansi infection and they often exhibit strong clinical signs than can lead to death, even...

Abstract

Background: Snails species belonging to the genus Bulinus (Planorbidae) serve as intermediate host for flukes belonging to the genus Schistosoma (Digenea, Platyhelminthes). Despite its importance in the transmission of these parasites, the evolutionary history of this genus is still obscure. In the ...

Abstract

In this study, using a combined data set of SSU rDNA and gGAPDH gene sequences, we provide phylogenetic evidence that supports clustering of crocodilian trypanosomes from the Brazilian Caiman yacare (Alligatoridae) and Trypanosoma grayi, a species that circulates between African crocodiles...

Abstract

Investigating patterns and processes of parasite diversification over ancient geological periods should involve comparisons of host and parasite phylogenies in a biogeographic context. It has been shown previously that the geographical distribution of host-specific parasites of sarcopterygians was...

Abstract

A molecular epidemiological survey of the protozoal parasites that cause equine piroplasmosis was conducted using samples collected from horses and zebra from different geographical locations in South Africa. A total of 488 samples were tested for the presence of Theileria equi and/or Babesia...

Abstract

Among Polystomatidae (Monogenea), the genus Polystoma, which mainly infests neobatrachian hosts, is the most diverse and occurs principally in Africa, from where half the species have been reported. Previous molecular phylogenetic studies have shown that this genus originated in South America, and...

Abstract

A phylogenetic study of 10 schistosome genera using approximately 1100 bases of the large subunit of the nuclear ribosomal gene complex revealed 2 major clades. One clade is entirely mammalian and includes the genera Schistosoma and Orientobilharzia. A close examination of relationships in this...

Abstract

Phylogenetic analysis of 25 morphological characteristics among 12 Haemonchus species resulted in one most parsimonious tree (60 steps; consistency index, 0.67; retention index, 0.80). Monophyly for Haemonchus was diagnosed by 3 unequivocal synapomorphies, including the asymmetric origin of the...

Abstract

This study correlates information on the evolutionary relationships of the anuran genus Xenopus with patterns of speciation and host specificity of the monogenean parasites of the genus Protopolystoma (mostly newly recognised species whose descriptions have not yet been formally published). ...
