Abstract

Isolation of wildlife into fragmented populations as a consequence of anthropogenic-mediated environmental change may alter host-pathogen relationships. Our understanding of some of the epidemiological features of infectious disease in vulnerable populations can be enhanced by the use of commensal...

Abstract

The introduction of rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) into Australia and New Zealand during the 1990s as a means of controlling feral rabbits is an important case study in viral emergence. Both epidemics are exceptional in that the founder viruses share an origin and the timing of their...

Abstract

This study presents new data on the evolutionary histories and phylogenetic relationships of southern hemisphere Haliotis spp. Data from sequence analysis of the mitochondrial DNA cytochrome oxidase II (COII) gene from 14 species inhabiting Indo-Pacific waters, including six Australian endemics,...

Abstract

Since the 1990s, Brucella strains have been isolated from a wide variety of marine mammals and were recently recognized as two different species, i.e. Brucella pinnipedialis for pinniped isolates and Brucella ceti for cetacean isolates. The aim of this study was to identify specific DNA fragments...

Abstract

Bovine viral diarrhoea virus 2 (BVDV-2) strains demonstrated in cattle, sheep, and adventitious contaminants of biological products have been evaluated by the palindromic nucleotide substitutions (PNS) method at the three variable loci (V1, V2 and V3) in the 5′ untranslated region (UTR), to...

Abstract

King scallops (Pecten sp.) are commercially important in regions as distant as Europe, Australia, and Japan, and some species are cultured. The taxonomy of king scallops has been traditionally based on characteristics of the shell. Recently, the analysis of protein and DNA polymorphism has shown...

Abstract

Insect iridoviruses (IV) have been found on all continents of the world and in a broad range of insect hosts. The host range for a single strain can cross several insect orders. This along with a paucity of molecular information on all but a few members has led to confusion in the taxonomy and...

Abstract

Intraspecific genetic variation in L. sericata and L. cuprina was studied by random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequencing. Numerical analysis of RAPD fragment data was used to investigate genetic variation in L. sericata across Europe and in both L....

Abstract

To consider the evolutionary origin of the ectoparasitic habit in the blowfly genus Lucilia, phylogenetic analyses of mitochondrial DNA sequence data were performed for 10 species, including all the common Lucilia agents of myiasis, collected from Africa, Australasia, North America and Europe....
