A macroevolutionary mosaic: episodic host‐switching, geographical colonization and diversification in complex host–parasite systems
Aim To integrate ecological fitting, the oscillation hypothesis and the taxon pulse hypothesis into a coherent null model for the evolution of complex host–parasite associations.

Phylogenetic and divergence date analyses indicate that the occurrence of Taenia tapeworms in humans pre–dates the development of agriculture, animal husbandry and domestication of cattle (Bos spp.)…

The MPT was found to be the most efficient hypothesis for describing character evolution and in specifying relationships among the orders when compared to those concepts that had been developed for the tapeworms over the past century.

It is shown that warming in the Arctic may have already radically altered the transmission dynamics of this parasite, escalating infection pressure for muskoxen, and that this trend is expected to continue.

Ecological Fitting (EF) provides many opportunities for rapid host switching in changing environments, without the evolution of novel host-utilization capabilities, which fuel the expansion phase of the Oscillation Hypothesis of host range and speciation and the generation of novel combinations of interacting species within the Geographic Mosaic Theory of Coevolution.

New morphological characters for identifying individual specimens of Haemonchus spp. (Nematoda: Trichostrongyloidea) and a key to species in ruminants of North America.
Characteristics of surface cuticular ridges (synlophe) are described, which for the first time provide morphological criteria for identifying individual adult specimens of either sex.
Libyostrongylus dentatus n. sp. (Nematoda: Trichostrongylidae) from ostriches in North America, with comments on the genera Libyostrongylus and Paralibyostrongylus.
The species is distinguished from congeners by the presence of a prominent, dorsal, esophageal tooth; in males by the structure of the dorsal ray and spicules; and in females by small eggs.
