Species density distributions as null models for ecologically significant interactions of parasite species in an assemblage
A multiple-kind lottery model is presented for use in determining whether species density distributions in parasite species assemblages reveal regularly occurring species-to-species interactions. The… Expand
Myxosoma funduli Kudo (Myxosporida) in Fundulus kansae: Ultrastructure of the Plasmodium Wall and of Sporogenesis*
SYNOPSIS Ultrastructure of the plasmodium wall and of sporogenesis were studied in Myxosoma funduli Kudo infecting the gills of Fundulus kansae (Garman). Plasmodia were located within the… Expand
Observations on Myiasis by the Calliphorids, Bufolucilia silvarum and Bufolucilia elongata, in Wood Frogs, Rana sylvatica, From Southeastern Wisconsin
Larvae of certain species of blowflies (Calliphoridae) can cause myiasis in frogs and toads, but there are few reports from North American amphibians. Of these, most are from toads (bufonids). In… Expand
The roles of ecological and evolutionary influences in providing structure to parasite species assemblages.
Parasite species assemblages currently are thought to range from isolationist to interactive, their dynamic properties being related to the number of species and types of hosts involved. The… Expand
Comparative Life Cycles and Life Histories of North American Rhabdias Spp. (Nematoda: Rhabdiasidae): Lungworms from Snakes and Anurans
Abstract The present study used experimental infections to compare the life cycles and life histories of 6 Rhabdias spp. infecting snakes and anurans. Free-living development of anuran lungworms was… Expand
Behavioral basis of second intermediate host specificity among four species of Haematoloechus (Digenea: Haematoloechidae).
Cercarial behavior patterns were examined in 4 species of frog lung flukes (Haematoloechus spp.). Cercariae of Haematoloechus complexus, Haematoloechus medioplexus, Haematoloechus longiplexus, and… Expand
Host stadium specificity in the gregarine assemblage parasitizing Tenebrio molitor.
Reciprocal cross-stadia experimental infections were used to demonstrate stadium specificity within the gregarine assemblage parasitizing Tenebrio molitor, the yellow mealworm. Gregarina cuneata,… Expand
SMALL FROGS GET THEIR WORMS FIRST: THE ROLE OF NONODONATE ARTHROPODS IN THE RECRUITMENT OF HAEMATOLOECHUS COLORADENSIS AND HAEMATOLOECHUS COMPLEXUS IN NEWLY METAMORPHOSED NORTHERN LEOPARD FROGS, RANA…
Studies on the life cycles and epizootiology of North American frog lung flukes indicate that most species utilize odonates as second intermediate hosts; adult frogs become infected by ingesting… Expand
