  • Biology
  • Systematic Parasitology
  • 1 October 1981
SummaryParapharyngodon osteopili n.sp. is described from the Cuban treefrog Osteopilus septentrionalis (Hylidae; Anura). Parapharyngodon Chatterji, 1933 and Thelandros Wedl, 1862 are redefined andExpand
Evolutionary biology of the Oxyurida (Nematoda): biofacies of a haplodiploid taxon.
  • M. Adamson
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Advances in parasitology
  • 1989
This chapter reviews the phylogeny, life history, and ecology of Oxyurida to gain a fuller understanding of the biofacies of haplodiploidy. Expand
Evolutionary patterns in life histories of Oxyurida.

  • Biology, Medicine
  • International journal for parasitology
  • 1 December 1994
The Oxyurida comprises some 850 known species that occur in the intestine of arthropods and vertebrates (one species in annelids) and like many haplodiploid groups, pinworms tend to have life histories that involve high levels of inbreeding. Expand
Evolutionary factors influencing the nature of parasite specificity.
How specificity patterns are shaped during the course of parasite evolution is considered, which suggests that parasites may act as host generalists in hosts that act as trophic channels to the final host. Expand
Gyrinicola batrachiensis (Walton, 1929) n.comb. (Oxyuroidea; Nematoda) from tadpoles in eastern and central Canada
Gyrinicola batrachiensis was found in seven species of anurans belonging to the Ranidae, Hylidae, and Bufonidae in New Brunswick, Quebec, and Ontario, Canada and is redescribed from material collected near Guelph, Ontario. Expand
Development and transmission of Gyrinicola batrachiensis (Walton, 1929) Adamson, 1981 (Pharyngodonidae: Oxyuroidea)
Results presented herein show that thin-shelled eggs are autoinfective whereas thick-shelling eggs are transmission agents. Expand
Seasonal changes in populations of Gyrinicola batrachiensis (Walton, 1929) in wild tadpoles
Five hundred and thirty-five tadpoles of Rana clamitans, collected from a permanent pond throughout spring, summer and fall, 1976 to 1978, and 85 tadpoles of Bufo americanus, collected from a seaso...
Spirocamallanus monotaxis is redescribed from Monotaxis grandoculis (Lethrinidae) and reported from 10 other species of coral reef associated fishes from both the Society Islands and the TuamotuExpand
Haplodiploidy in the Oxyurida: decoupling the evolutionary processes of adaptation and speciation.
  • M. Adamson
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Annales de parasitologie humaine et comparee
  • 1990
The Oxyurida have the broadest host distribution of any zooparasitic nematode group but have retained a virtually unchanged life cycle, and like other haplodiploids, oxyuridians have life histories that maintain viscous population structures. Expand
Prevalence and intensity of Pseudodelphis oligocotti n. gen., n. sp. (Dracunculoidea; Guyanemidae) in the tidepool sculpin, Oligocottus maculosus (Scorpaeniformes; Cottidae).
Pseudodelphis oligocotti n. gen., n. sp. (Dracunculoidea; Guyanemidae) is described from the tidepool sculpin, Oligocottus maculosus (Scorpaeniformes; Cottidae), from various localities in coastalExpand
