Mesocoelium Odhner, 1901 (Digenea: Mesocoelidae) revisited; a revision of the family and re-evaluation of species composition in the genus
The family Mesocoelidae Dollfus, 1929 is revised supporting the recognition of Pintneria Poche, 1907 where the testesare tandem and Mesocoelium Odhner, 1910 where the testes are oblique to nearlyExpand

Risky business: linking Toxoplasma gondii infection and entrepreneurship behaviours across individuals and countries
Disciplines such as business and economics often rely on the assumption of rationality when explaining complex human behaviours. However, growing evidence suggests that behaviour may concurrently beExpand

Role of Antimicrobial Peptides in Amphibian Defense Against Trematode Infection
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) contribute to the immune defenses of many vertebrates, including amphibians. As larvae, amphibians are often exposed to the infectious stages of trematode parasites,Expand

Community disassembly and disease: realistic—but not randomized—biodiversity losses enhance parasite transmission
Debates over the relationship between biodiversity and disease dynamics underscore the need for a more mechanistic understanding of how changes in host community composition influence parasiteExpand

Parasites of invasive freshwater fishes and the factors affecting their richness
Freshwater environments are threatened by nonnative species introductions, often involving fishes. Parasites and pathogens introduced with fishes have the potential to infect native taxa and shouldExpand

Endohelminths in Bird Hosts from Northern California and an Analysis of the Role of Life History Traits on Parasite Richness
Abstract The life history characteristics of hosts often influence patterns of parasite infection either by affecting the likelihood of parasite exposure or the probability of infection afterExpand

The influence of landscape and environmental factors on ranavirus epidemiology in a California amphibian assemblage.
A fundamental goal of disease ecology is to determine the landscape and environmental processes that drive disease dynamics at different biological levels to guide management and conservation.Expand

Circadian rhythms of trematode parasites: applying mixed models to test underlying patterns.
Circadian rhythms of parasites and their hosts can influence processes such as transmission, pathology and life cycle evolution. For trematode parasites that depend on free-living infectious stagesExpand
