Trypanosome transmission by Corethrella wirthi (Diptera: Chaoboridae) to the green treefrog, Hyla cinerea (Anura: Hylidae).
TLDR
Transmission of the parasite to uninfected frogs was demonstrated by exposure of male and female frogs to naturally infected flies and to parasites injected subdermally. Expand
Recent advances in laboratory mass rearing of phlebotomine sand flies.
TLDR
This work maintains closed colonies of Phlebotomus papatasi, P. duboscqi,P. Expand
Host feeding preference of Phlebotomus guggisbergi, a vector of Leishmania tropica in Kenya
TLDR
Great emphasis should be placed on surveying larger animals to assess their status as reservoir hosts for L.tropica in Kenya, as numbers of sandflies collected from the goat, sheep and cat were significantly greater than from the rabbit and rodents. Expand
Additional Plasmodium species from Anolis lizards of Hispaniola and Panama.
TLDR
The increased diversity of Plasmodium parasites in Hispaniolan anoles is attributed to colonization of the island by four separate evolutionary lines of Anolis lizards, in comparison to fewer invasions of Jamaica and Puerto Rico, where only P. floridense and P. azurophilum are found. Expand
Phlebotomine sandflies associated with households of human visceral leishmaniasis cases in Baringo District, Kenya.
TLDR
A significant association was detected between the monthly abundance of sandflies and rainfall in the previous month and a significantly higher proportion of females than males was collected in light traps than on sticky paper traps set in termite mounds or animal burrows. Expand
Phlebotomine sandflies of Kenya (Diptera: Psychodidae). V. Phlebotomus (Paraphlebotomus) mireillae n.sp.
TLDR
A new species of the sandfly subgenus Paraphlebotomus Theodor from Kenya is described and named Phle Botomus mireillae, which is believed to be a new addition to the genus of sandflies. Expand
Population genetics of the koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) in north-eastern New South Wales and south-eastern Queensland
TLDR
It is suggested that koala populations in north-eastern New South Wales and south-e eastern Queensland are experiencing contemporary impediments to gene flow, and the importance of maintaining habitat connectivity across this region is highlighted. Expand
Heterodera schachtii responses to exogenous hormones.
TLDR
Infective larvae of H. schachtii, the sugar beet nematode, were treated with aqueous and oil solutions of selected steroids and sesquiterpene derivatives then placed on host plants for development, and only males were observed to manifest prodigious testicular development together with consequent morphological aberrations. Expand
Identification of phlebotomine sandfly bloodmeals from Baringo district, Kenya, by direct enzyme‐linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)
TLDR
Direct enzyme‐linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to identify the sources of bloodmeals in phlebotomine sandflies from Baringo District, Rift Valley Province, Kenya to ascertain whether they act as reservoirs in the transmission of Leishmania donovani causing visceral leishmaniasis in Kenya.
