QUANTIFYING PARASITES IN SAMPLES OF HOSTS
Whereas terminological recommendations require authors to use mean intensity or mean abundance to quantify parasites in a sample of hosts, awkward statistical limitations also force them to useExpand

Distribution of Carnus hemapterus in a starling colony
The distribution of the haematophagous fly Carnus hemapterus among starling (Sturnus vulgaris) broods was investigated in a nest-box colony. Prevalence of infection was 94% among broods and 69% amongExpand

Ectoparasites, uropygial glands and hatching success in birds
The uropygial gland of birds secretes wax that is applied to the plumage, where the secretions are hypothesized to eliminate fungi and bacteria, thereby potentially providing important benefits inExpand

Parasite biodiversity and host defenses: chewing lice and immune response of their avian hosts
Antagonistic host-parasite interactions lead to coevolution of host defenses and parasite virulence. Such adaptation by parasites to host defenses may occur to the detriment of the ability ofExpand

Patterns in the distribution of avian lice (Phthiraptera: Amblycera, Ischnocera)
The frequency distributions of 15 species of avian lice among individuals within host populations are described and 12 previously described distributions are reviewed. All of these distributions wereExpand

PROPERTIES OF CROWDING INDICES AND STATISTICAL TOOLS TO ANALYZE PARASITE CROWDING DATA
Crowding, i.e., the size of the infrapopulation inhabiting an individual host, is a major component of parasites' environment, which often influences both morphological and life-history charactersExpand
