A guideline for the preparation of species descriptions in the Eimeriidae.
TLDR
This work proposes a specific set of guidelines for the preparation of species descriptions of coccidia based predominently on the structure of the sporulated oocyst, and emphasizes that ancillary data be incorporated whenever possible with the species description. Expand
A revision of the taxonomy and nomenclature of the Eimeria spp. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from rodents in the Tribe Marmotini (Sciuridae)
TLDR
The number of named eimerian species in the Marmotini is reduced from 40 to 26 valid species; the names of those species that were most similar are synonymised and the species for which the original descriptions were inadequate are considered to be species inquirendae. Expand
Two new species and temporal changes in the prevalence of eimerians in a free-living population of Townsend's ground squirrels (Spermophilus townsendii) in Idaho.
TLDR
Temporal changes in the prevalence of eimerians of all 7 species combined in adult squirrels showed significant decline, and it is hypothesize that this decline was due to drought during the period of squirrel activity. Expand
Coccidia of the collared peccary (Tayassu tajacu) in southern Texas with descriptions of three new species of Eimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae).
TLDR
Fecal samples were collected from 47 collared peccaries killed by hunters at the Chaparral Wildlife Management Area, southern Texas, USA and the majority of hosts were infected with a single species of Eimeria. Expand
Caryospora simplex (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from a captive Kaznakov's viper (Vipers kaznakovi)
TLDR
Coccidian mer-onts and gamonts were observed in the intestinal epithelial cells of another female Kaznakov's viper that died in October 1993. Expand
A NEW COCCIDIAN (APICOMPLEXA: EIMERIIDAE) IN THE NORTHERN POCKET GOPHER (THOMOMYS TALPOIDES) AND A COMPARISON OF OOCYST SURVIVAL IN HOSTS FROM RADON-RICH AND RADON-POOR SOILS
TLDR
The elevated radon content of the soil may have had an adverse effect on the sporulation of this coccidian while it still was intracellular within its host. Expand
MARK-RECAPTURE VS. SIMULATED REMOVAL TRAPPING FOR ASSESSING TEMPORAL PATTERNS IN ECOLOGICAL COMMUNITIES : AN EXAMPLE USING COCCIDIAN PARASITES OF TWO SPECIES OF RODENTS
TLDR
It is shown that repeated removals may result in sample sizes that are too small to address questions about temporal patterns in prevalence of infection or parasite community size, and that markrecapture trapping can circumvent these problems. Expand
An Artificial Life Approach to Host-Parasite Interactions
TLDR
A spatially-explicit, individual-based model simulating host-parasite interactions between Townsend's ground squirrels and two of its parasites was developed to assess the interactions of multiple factors (host immunity, parasite life-history, weather, and chance) on this system. Expand
