Disparate rates of molecular evolution in cospeciating hosts and parasites.
TLDR
DNA sequences for the gene encoding mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I in a group of rodents and their ectoparasites provide evidence for cospeciation and reveal different rates of molecular evolution in the hosts and their parasites.
Microevolution and the genetic structure of parasite populations.

TLDR
Many additional empirical studies are needed to characterize basic features of parasite populations, including the spatial distribution and group size of random mating populations and levels of gene flow among parasite subpopulations.
Phylogenetic relationships of the Acanthocephala inferred from 18S ribosomal DNA sequences.
TLDR
All phylogenetic analyses are consistent with monophyly of the major taxonomic groups of the Acanthocephala, suggesting that the current higher order classification is natural.
Phylogeny of Steinernema Travassos, 1927 (Cephalobina: Steinernematidae) Inferred From Ribosomal DNA Sequences and Morphological Characters
TLDR
Interpretation of morphological character evolution on 6 trees inferred from sequence data and combined evidence suggests that many structural features of these nematodes are highly homoplastic, and that some structures previously used to hypothesize relationships represent ancestral character states.
Phylogenetic trees support the coevolution of parasites and their hosts
TLDR
A test of the prediction that phylogenetic trees of parasites and their hosts should be topologically identical using protein electrophoretic data finds a high degree of concordance in the branching patterns of the trees which suggests that there is a history of cospeciation in this host–parasite assemblage.
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENETICS AND DIAGNOSIS OF ANISAKIS, PSEUDOTERRANOVA, AND CONTRACAECUM FROM NORTHERN PACIFIC MARINE MAMMALS
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of LSU sequences revealed strong support for the monophyly of Anisakinae, Contracaecum plus Phocascaris, Pseudoterranova, and Anisakis, which is primarily consistent with previously published phenograms based on multilocus electrophoretic data.
PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF PALAEACANTHOCEPHALA (ACANTHOCEPHALA) INFERRED FROM SSU AND LSU rDNA GENE SEQUENCES
TLDR
The results indicate that the family level classification of palaeacanthocephalans needs to be reevaluated with respect to comprehensively sampled phylogenetic hypotheses.
A COX2 molecular phylogeny of the Peronosporomycetes
TLDR
This molecular phylogenetic analysis at both the ordinal and generic levels provides strong evidence for the recognition of the Saprolegniomycetidae and the PeronosporomycETidae as natural groups, and for the monophyly of the saprolegniales, Leptomitales and Pythiales.
Molecular evidence for Acanthocephala as a subtaxon of Rotifera
TLDR
The hypothesis that the Acanthocephala represent a taxon within the phylum Rotifera and not a separate phylum is supported, which agrees with a previous cladistic study of morphological characters.
Genetic stability of equine arteritis virus during horizontal and vertical transmission in an outbreak of equine viral arteritis.
TLDR
Findings are consistent with the hypothesis that the carrier stallion can be a source of genetic diversity of EAV, and that outbreaks of EVA can be initiated by the horizontal aerosol transmission of specific viral variants that occur in the semen of particular carrier stallions.
