Effects of body size and parasite infection on the locomotory performance of juvenile toads, Bufo bufo
TLDR
The effects of body size and nematode infection on the stamina and burst performance of juvenile toads, Bufo bufo, and the results confirmed that toads reared in ponds at high and low densities showed a 29.0% difference in mass at metamorphosis.
Phylogenetic relationships among Muscoidea (Diptera: Calyptratae) based on mitochondrial DNA sequences
TLDR
The molecular phylogeny obtained here matches the classical morphological taxonomy reasonably well and it is impossible to clearly separate the Muscoidea and Calliphoridae, preventing a firm conclusion on the phylogenetic relationships among Muscoidaa families.
Real-Time PCR Investigation of Potential Vectors, Reservoirs, and Shedding Patterns of Feline Hemotropic Mycoplasmas
TLDR
The results suggest that besides an ostensibly indirect transmission by fleas, direct transmission through saliva and feces at the early phase of infection could play a role in the epizootiology of feline hemotropic mycoplasmas.
Phylogeny of the scathophagidae (Diptera, calyptratae) based on mitochondrial DNA sequences.
TLDR
A fragment of the terminal region of the mitochondrial gene COI was sequenced in scathophagid species covering a wide geographic area, as well as a diverse spectrum of ecological habitats and confirmed monophyly of most genera, except for the genus Scathophaga, which should be divided into several different taxa.
Phylogeny of European Dolichopus and Gymnopternus (Diptera: Dolichopodidae) and the significance of morphological characters inferred from molecular data
TLDR
The phylogeny generated here provides a better understanding of the phy- logenetic relevance of some debated morphological characters used for species and species-group characterizations in the most com- monly used identification keys.
Molecular data sheds light on the classification of long-legged flies (Diptera : Dolichopodidae)
TLDR
The results highlight several problems with the traditional classification, which have considerable consequences for the systematic status of some taxa, and the poor resolution observed in deep divergences supports previous hypotheses suggesting a rapid early radiation of Dolichopodidae.
Mechanism of Metronidazole Resistance inHelicobacter pylori: Comparison of the rdxA Gene Sequences in 30 Strains
TLDR
No particular nucleotide mutation or amino acid substitution could be associated to metronidazole resistance and phylogenetic analysis of the 30 nucleotide sequences did not demonstrate specific clusters associated with the resistance phenotype.
Diversity within Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato genospecies in Switzerland by recA gene sequence.
TLDR
The most prevalent and diverse genospecies found in Switzerland was Borrelia afzelii, which might suggest a rapid evolution of this genosPecies.
