Genetic typing of Echinococcus granulosus in Romania
In Romania, cystic echinococcosis is endemic and affects, besides humans, various animal species including sheep, cattle, and swine. As yet, no molecular-genetic typing has been carried out toExpand

Interspecific differences in cuticular hydrocarbon profiles of Myrmica ants are sufficiently consistent to explain host specificity by Maculinea (large blue) butterflies
The chemical signatures on the cuticles of five common Myrmica ant species were analysed (49 colonies of M.rubra, M.ruginodis, M.sabuleti, M.scabrinodis and M.schencki), each ant being the specificExpand

Assessment of Use of Microsatellite Polymorphism Analysis for Improving Spatial Distribution Tracking of Echinococcus multilocularis
ABSTRACT Alveolar echinococcosis (AE)—caused by the cestode Echinococcus multilocularis—is a severe zoonotic disease found in temperate and arctic regions of the northern hemisphere. Even though theExpand

Taxonomic position and geographical distribution of the common sheep G1 and camel G6 strains of Echinococcus granulosus in three African countries
The taxonomic and phylogenetic status of Echinococcus granulosus strains are still controversial and under discussion. In the present study, we investigated the genetic polymorphism of E. granulosusExpand

Genetic diversity of Echinococcus multilocularis on a local scale.
Echinococcusmultilocularis is the causative agent of human Alveolar Echinococcosis (AE), and it is one of the most lethal zoonotic infections in the Northern Hemisphere. In France, the eastern andExpand

Ecological, morphological, and genetic differentiation of Daphnia (Hyalodaphnia) from the Finnish and Russian subarctic
We studied genetic differentiation of two subarctic Daphnia species (subgenus Hyalodaphnia; Cladocera: Anomopoda) in relation to ecological and morphological diversification. Daphnia longispina andExpand

Echinococcus multilocularis in Svalbard, Norway: microsatellite genotyping to investigate the origin of a highly focal contamination.
Echinococcus multilocularis is a threatening cestode involved in the human alveolar echinococcosis. The parasite, mainly described in temperate regions of the Northern hemisphere was described forExpand
