Cryptosporidium Taxonomy: Recent Advances and Implications for Public Health
TLDR
A review of the biologic species concept, the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN), and current practices for Cryptosporidium species designation calls for the establishment of guidelines for naming Cryptospora species.
Epidemiology of Cryptosporidium: transmission, detection and identification.
TLDR
This paper reviews the valid species of Cryptosporidium, their hosts and morphometrics; the reported hosts for the human pathogen, C. parvum; the mechanisms of transmission; the drinking water, recreational water, and food-borne outbreaks resulting from infection with C.parvum%; and the microscopic, immunological, and molecular methods used to detect and identify species and genotypes.
Prevalence and age-related variation of Cryptosporidium species and genotypes in dairy calves.
TLDR
The findings clearly demonstrate that earlier reports on the presence and prevalence of C. parvum in post-weaned cattle that were based solely on oocyst morphology must be reassessed using molecular methods to validate species and genotype.
Genetic Diversity within Cryptosporidium parvum and Related Cryptosporidium Species
TLDR
A need for revision in the taxonomy and assessment of the zoonotic potential of some animal C. parvum isolates is indicated, because extensive genetic diversities were present among C. Parvum genotypes.

  • 9 December 2004
TLDR
Reports of outbreaks of cryptosporidiosis related to drinking water in North America, the UK, and Japan, where detection methods are in place, indicate that water is a major vehicle for transmission of Cryptosporidium.
Phylogenetic Analysis of CryptosporidiumParasites Based on the Small-Subunit rRNA Gene Locus
TLDR
This study revealed that the genus Cryptosporidium contains the phylogenetically distinct species C. serpentis, which is consistent with the biological characteristics and host specificity data.

  • 2010
Amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals serve as hosts for 19 species of Cryptosporidium. All 19 species have been confirmed by morphological, biological, and molecular data. Fish serve as hosts for
Triosephosphate Isomerase Gene Characterization and Potential Zoonotic Transmission of Giardia duodenalis
TLDR
These data confirm that G. duodenalis from certain animals can potentially infect humans and should be useful in the detection, differentiation, and taxonomy of Giardia spp.
Prevalence of species and genotypes of Cryptosporidium found in 1-2-year-old dairy cattle in the eastern United States.
TLDR
A lower prevalence of infection in 1-2-year-old dairy cattle than in younger cattle as well as a change in the diversity of species present are demonstrated.
