Abstract

Natural selection in domestic dogs is of great interest in evolutionary biology since dogs have migrated to every inhabited continent of the world alongside humans, and adapted to diverse environments. Here, we explored their demographic history and genetic basis of adaptation to the tropical...

Abstract

Background: The Pomatiopsidae are reported from northern India into southern China and Southeast Asia, with two sub-families, the Pomatiopsinae (which include freshwater, amphibious, terrestrial and marine species) and the freshwater Triculinae. Both include species acting as intermediate host for...

Abstract

Anopheles darlingi is the principal neotropical malaria vector, responsible for more than a million cases of malaria per year on the American continent. Anopheles darlingi diverged from the African and Asian malaria vectors ∼100 million years ago (mya) and successfully adapted to the New World...

Abstract

Polymorphism of a 810-bp fragment of mitochondrial cox1 gene was studied in 15 cercariae isolates of bird schistosomes (family Schistosomatidae), which were collected in water bodies of Moscow and Moscow oblast and represented three species: Trichobilharzia szidati, T. franki, and T. regenti. A...

Abstract

Intraspecific genetic variation of Echinococcus multilocularis, the etiologic agent of human alveolar echinococcosis, has been evaluated among 76 geographic isolates from Europe, Asia and North America by using sequence data of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA. Relatively low genetic variation was...

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

Schistosoma species have traditionally been arranged in groups based on egg morphology, geographical origins and the genus or family of snail intermediate host. One of these groups is the 'S. indicum group' comprising species from Asia that use pulmonate snails as intermediate hosts. Four members...
