Abstract

The protein encoding zone of Mitochondrial DNA region (inherited from single lineage) seems most suitable and effective for taxonomic, systematic, ecological, evolutionary, DNA barcoding, cryptic species and population studies, exploiting nucleotide/amino acid datasets (1D/2D/3D conformational...

Abstract

Background: Avian malaria parasites (Plasmodium spp.) and related haemosporidians (Haemosporida) are responsible for diseases which can be severe and even lethal in avian hosts. These parasites cause not only blood pathology, but also damage various organs due to extensive exo-erythrocytic...

Abstract

The taxonomic richness of lice (Phthiraptera) varies considerably among their avian and mammalian hosts. Previous studies explored some factors shaping louse diversity; however, the so-called Eichler's rule-according to which taxonomic richness of parasites co-varies with that of their hosts - has...

Abstract

Plasmodium (Novyella) homopolare, a newly described Plasmodium species, was found in a wide range of Passeriformes species in California, USA, and Colombia. This parasite infected more than 20% of the sampled bird community (N=399) in California and was found in 3.6% of birds sampled (N=493) in...

Abstract

Libyostrongylus sp. are nematodes that infect ostriches. Libyostrongylus douglassii was first described in ostriches from several countries in the world. Later Libyostrongylus dentatus was morphologically identified in ostriches in the USA and Brazil, and mixed infection is common in the latter...

Abstract

Blood samples from 655 passerine birds were collected in rainforests of Ghana and Cameroon and examined both by microscopy and polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based techniques. The overall prevalence of Plasmodium spp. was 46.6%, as determined by combining the results of both these diagnostic...

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...

Abstract

The classification of trypanosomes is discussed, and it is pointed out that attempts to subdivide the genus Trypanosama have not been satisfactory. Wen-yon's division into groups based on the mode of transmission and method of evolution in the invertebrate, may be satisfactory from the medical and...
