Abstract

The aim of this work was to determine the evolutionary relationship among tick populations of Rhipicephalus sanguineus sensu lato distributed in Africa north of the Sahara and different lineages of R. sanguineus s.l. distributed in different regions of Sub-Saharan Africa, America and Europe through ...

Abstract

Pufferfishes belonging to the genus Tetraodon form one of the largest groups in the family Tetraodontidae. This group consists of more than 20 species distributed across freshwater, as well as brackish and coastal waters, of Africa and Southeast Asia. However, their phylogenetic and evolutionary...

Abstract

The genus Physa (=Physella) includes the most abundant and diverse freshwater gastropods native to North America. Due to their invasive nature many species occur throughout the world. The most abundant species, Physa acuta, has been introduced to Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia by human commerce ...

Abstract

The role played by bats as a potential source of transmission of Leptospira spp. to humans is poorly understood, despite various pathogenic Leptospira spp. being identified in these mammals. Here, we investigated the prevalence and diversity of pathogenic Leptospira spp. that infect the...

Abstract

Complementary nuclear (28S rRNA) and mitochondrial (COI+II) gene markers were sequenced from the blowflies, Lucilia cuprina and L. sericata, from Europe, Africa, North America, Australasia and Hawaii. Populations of the two species were phylogenetically distinct at both genes, with one exception....

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...

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...
