A guideline for the preparation of species descriptions in the Eimeriidae.
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.
A revision of the taxonomy and nomenclature of the Eimeria spp. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from rodents in the Tribe Marmotini (Sciuridae)

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.
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.
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.
Coccidia of the collared peccary (Tayassu tajacu) in southern Texas with descriptions of three new species of Eimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae).
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.
Helminth infections in the townsend's ground squirrel during drought
Caryospora simplex (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from a captive Kaznakov's viper (Vipers kaznakovi)
Coccidian mer-onts and gamonts were observed in the intestinal epithelial cells of another female Kaznakov's viper that died in October 1993.
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
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.
MARK-RECAPTURE VS. SIMULATED REMOVAL TRAPPING FOR ASSESSING TEMPORAL PATTERNS IN ECOLOGICAL COMMUNITIES : AN EXAMPLE USING COCCIDIAN PARASITES OF TWO SPECIES OF RODENTS
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.
