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

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: 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

This paper attempts to trace the probable evolution of mammalian trypanosomes. Haemato-phagous insects probably originated from phytophagous and/or predaceous ancestors, the trypano-somatid parasites of which eventually gave rise to trypanosomes. Trypanosomes transmitted by inoculation...

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...

Abstract

A forty page critical survey of the literature of the subject by CAMPBELL of the National Institute for Medical Research, London. The general interest of the subject, and the fact that much of the information is not readily available in the veterinary literature, perhaps justifies a somewhat...

Abstract

The optimum method of transmission for a blood parasite is brought about when it is withdrawn from the blood by an insect and is reintroduced by it into suitable blood. Leaving aside the cases where the insect plays but a mechanical rôle in much the same manner as a syringe needle, cases of...

Abstract

In this interesting monograph Watson presents a succinct account of Canadian experience with dourine, an experience extending over a period of 15 years, and covering the study and suppression of a rare and serious disease previously unknown in Canada. It is well to tear in mind that although the...
