A Review of Species in the Genus Rhopalias (Rudolphi, 1819)
TLDR
This work examines a total of 99 specimens across all species from museum collections in an attempt to determine informative taxonomic characters to distinguish these species. Expand
Predicting the distribution of a parasite using the ecological niche model, GARP
The ecological niche of a parasite exists only at the nexus of certain abiotic and biotic conditions suitable for both the definitive and intermediate hosts....
Natural Antibiotic Resistance of Bacteria Isolated from Larvae of the Oil Fly, Helaeomyia petrolei
TLDR
The observed correlation between antibiotic resistance and organic solvent tolerance is likely explained by an active efflux pump that is maintained in oil fly bacteria by the constant selective pressure of La Brea's solvent-rich environment. Expand
Two New Species of Andrya (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae) from Sigmodontine Rodents in the Neotropics
TLDR
The occurrence of these species in South America suggests that cestodes of the genus Andrya were introduced on that continent by sigmodontine rodents from the Nearctic, probably after the formation of the Isthmus of Panama. Expand
New Species in the Genus Monoecocestus (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae) From Neotropical Rodents (Caviidae and Sigmodontinae)
TLDR
The discussion includes commentary about uterine development, an important taxonomic character of the family, the vaginal dilation in immature segments, and the implication of host usage to the evolutionary history and biogeography of species in this genus. Expand
A Redescription of Three Species of Monoecocestus (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae) Including Monoecocestus threlkeldi Based on New Material
TLDR
It is affirm that Perutaenia Parra, 1953 should remain a junior synonym of Monoecocestus and redescribe M. threlkeldi (Parra, 1952) using material collected in Bolivia. Expand
Taxonomic revision of species of the genus Monoecocestus (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae)
TLDR
The discussion includes commentary about uterine development, an important taxonomic character of the family, the vaginal dilation in immature proglottids, and the implication of host usage to the evolutionary history and biogeography of species in this genus. Expand
New Species in the Genus Monoecocesuts ( Cestoda : Anoplocephalidae ) from Neotropical Rodents ( Caviidae and Sigmodontidae )
Anoplocephalid cestodes have a worldwide distribution, but relatively few species are known from South American rodents. By examining the collections of the Harold W. Manter Laboratory ofExpand
