Ecological fitting as a determinant of the community structure of platyhelminth parasites of anurans.
Host-parasite associations are assumed to be ecologically specialized, tightly coevolved systems driven by mutual modification in which host switching is a rare phenomenon. Ecological fitting,Expand
Metazoan parasites of Mexican amphibians and reptiles
Based on published records and original data, we present a checklist of metazoan parasites of Mexican amphibians and reptiles. This checklist includes information for 430 nominal taxa of metazoanExpand
DNA barcoding reveals Mexican diversity within the freshwater leech genus Helobdella (Annelida: Glossiphoniidae)
We investigated the genetic distances and taxonomic status among species of Helobdella, a genus of non-blood-feeding leeches, based on mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I sequences. SamplingExpand
Phylogeny of the Mexican coastal leopard frogs of the Rana berlandieri group based on mtDNA sequences.
Phylogenetic relationships among specimens from 25 different locations for the six Mexican coastal leopard frog species of the Rana berlandieri species group were investigated using 797 bp of theExpand
NESTEDNESS IN COLONIZATION-DOMINATED SYSTEMS: HELMINTH INFRACOMMUNITIES OF RANA VAILLANTI BROCCHI (ANURA: RANIDAE) IN LOS TUXTLAS, VERACRUZ, MEXICO
Colonization probabilities of parasite species often are determined by the habitat preference and vagility of host individuals. Although extinction-based interpretations have been investigated forExpand
Monophyly and systematic position of Glypthelmins (Digenea), based on partial lsrDNA sequences and morphological evidence
Species composition and systematic placement within the order Plagiorchiida has been controversial. Species number in Glypthelmins Stafford, 1905, a genus of cosmopolitan parasites of anurans, hasExpand
Phylogenetic analysis of the Bunocotylinae dollfus, 1950 (Digenea: Hemiuridae).
The phylogenetic analysis of the 16 recognized genera in the Bunocotylinae, based upon 30 morphological transformation series, produced 2 most parsimonious trees, each with a consistency index ofExpand
Advancing nematode barcoding: A primer cocktail for the cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene from vertebrate parasitic nematodes
Although nematodes are one of the most diverse metazoan phyla, species identification through morphology is difficult. Several genetic markers have been used for their identification, but most do notExpand
