Phylogeny and classification of the Digenea (Platyhelminthes: Trematoda).
TLDR
Although a majority of families and to a lesser degree, superfamilies are supported as currently defined, the traditional divisions of the Echinostomida, Plagiorchiida and Strigeida were found to comprise non-natural assemblages. Expand
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of the Microphalloidea Ward, 1901 (Trematoda: Digenea)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the Microphalloidea, as represented by the present data-set, consists of three main clades corresponding to the families Lecithodendriidae, Microphallidae and Pleurogenidae + Prosthogonimidae. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of the suborder plagiorchiata (Platyhelminthes, Digenea) based on partial lsrDNA sequences.
TLDR
The results show that the Plagiorchiata, as considered by most authors, is not monophyletic, and that the superfamilies Opecoeloidea, and most probably Dicrocoelioidea and Gorgoderoidesa, may have to be removed from this suborder. Expand
Molecular and morphological differentiation between species of the Plagiorchis vespertilionis group (Digenea, Plagiorchiidae) occurring in European bats, with a re-description of P. vespertilionis
TLDR
Morphological study of the material in collections revealed characters which enable the species of Plagiorchis from bats in Europe to be distinguished, and a neotype is established and described. Expand
The Nematode Genus Rhabdias (Nematoda: Rhabdiasidae) from Amphibians and Reptiles of the Nearctic
TLDR
Data is summarized from the literature, study of new material, and examination of museum specimens on the representatives of the nematode family Rhabdiasidae in the Nearctic, and the applicability of some morphological characters for differentiation of R Habdias species is discussed. Expand
Advances and trends in the molecular systematics of the parasitic Platyhelminthes.
TLDR
The current state of play and the early works that led to the molecular-based hypotheses that now predominate in the field are reviewed; advances in their systematics, taxonomy, classification and phylogeny, as well as trends in species circumscription, molecular targets and analytical methods are discussed. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and systematics of the Echinostomatoidea Looss, 1899 (Platyhelminthes: Digenea).
TLDR
A morphology-based evaluation of this new molecular framework resulted in a number of systematic and nomenclatural changes consistent with the phylogenetic estimates of the generic and suprageneric boundaries and a new phylogeny-based classification of the Echinostomatoidea. Expand
Parasite Prevalence Corresponds to Host Life History in a Diverse Assemblage of Afrotropical Birds and Haemosporidian Parasites
TLDR
Nest type and nest location predicted infection probability for all three parasite genera, whereas flocking behavior is an important predictor of Plasmodium and Haemoproteus infection and habitat is anImportant predictor of Leucocytozoon infection. Expand
TWO NEW SPECIES OF RHABDIAS (NEMATODA: RHABDIASIDAE) FROM THE MARINE TOAD, BUFO MARINUS (L.) (LISSAMPHIBIA: ANURA: BUFONIDAE), IN CENTRAL AMERICA
TLDR
Two new Rhabdias species are described from the lungs of the cane toad Bufo marinus from Costa Rica and Nicaragua and are differentiated from R. sphaerocephala based on head-end morphology and sequences of nuclear rDNA. Expand
