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

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

Polymerase chain reaction products were characterized for a repeated sequence family (designated "O-150") of Onchocerca volvulus. In phylogenetic inferences, the O-150 sequences clustered into closely related groups, suggesting that concerted evolution maintains sequence homology in this family....

Abstract

Phylogenetic analysis of 18S ribosomal RNA sequences placed Trypanosoma brucei from humans [T. rhodesiense and T. gambiense] in a clade comprising exclusively mammalian trypanosomes of African origin, suggesting an evolutionary history confined to Africa. T. cruzi from humans and sylvatic mammals...
