Phylogenetic analysis of nematodes of the genus Pratylenchus using nuclear 26S rDNA.
TLDR
It is clear that species of Pratylenchus are a paraphyletic assemblage, and the outgroup taxon H. belli shares a common ancestor with the clade that includes P. vulnus and P. crenatus while N. aberrans and R. similis share acommon ancestor with 5 other species included in this study. Expand
Mapping the presence of Wolbachia pipientis on the phylogeny of filarial nematodes: evidence for symbiont loss during evolution.
Wolbachia pipientis is a bacterial endosymbiont associated with arthropods and filarial nematodes. In filarial nematodes, W. pipientis has been shown to play an important role in the biology of theExpand
The Enterobiinae subfam. Nov. (Nematoda, Oxyurida) pinworm parasites of primates and rodents.
TLDR
Recent redescriptions of most members of the Oxyuridae Cobbold, 1864 parasitic in primates revealed that they share following derived characters: sexual dimorphism of lateral alae, providing evidence that these taxa represent a monophyletic group. Expand
New York City, New York Municipal Forest Resource Analysis
We conduct research that demonstrates new ways in which trees add value to your community, converting results into financial terms to assist you in stimulating more investment in trees. The UnitedExpand
New and Known Species of Litomosoides (Nematoda: Filarioidea): Important Adult and Larval Characters and Taxonomic Changes
TLDR
This study confirms the close morphological resemblance between the species of Litomosoides from flying and terrestrial mammals and reinforces the hypothesis of host-switching in the evolution of this genus. Expand
USDA FOREST SERVICE, PACIFIC SOUTHWEST RESEARCH STATION
The team examined how altered water flows caused by hydroelectric dams impact the life cycle of the foothill yellow-legged frog (Rana boylii). The frog, which lives in foothill regions from southernExpand
Phylogenetic analysis based on 18S ribosomal RNA gene sequences supports the existence of class polyacanthocephala (acanthocephala).
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships inferred by maximum-likelihood and maximum-parsimony analyses showed Archiacanthocephala as the most basal group within the phylum, whereas classes PolyacanthoCEphala + Eoacanthi + Ei formed a monophyletic clade, with Palaeacanthospecifics as its sister group. Expand
A PHYLOGENETIC HYPOTHESIS FOR SPECIES OF THE GENUS TAENIA (EUCESTODA: TAENIIDAE)
TLDR
Patterns appear consistent with rapid shifts between phylogenetically unrelated carnivores but among those that historically exploited a common prey resource within communities in specific biogeographic regions. Expand
Trematode–gastropod associations in nine non-lacustrine habitats in the Mwanza region of Tanzania
TLDR
Between August 1978 and July 1979, freshwater gastropods were collected at monthly intervals from 9 different non-lacustrine habitats in the Mwanza region of Tanzania, and 38 morphologically distinguishable ‘species’ of cercariae were recovered, 22 of which did not conform to previously described African species. Expand
Structure of Parasite Component Communities of Didelphid Marsupials: Insights From a Comparative Study
TLDR
It is suggested that sympatric species of marsupials share more species of parasites than parasite communities occurring in conspecific marsupial from different localities, and taxonomic composition of these parasite communities varied depending on the locality. Expand
