Taxonomy, host associations, life cycles and vectorial importance of ticks parasitizing small mammals
In this chapter, small mammals are interpreted as being the smaller marsupials and bats, most insectivores (Insectivora), most rodents (Rodentia), and all tree shrews (Scandentia, elephant shrews), and lagomorphs (Lagomorpha), and ticks parasitizing these groups of mammals are considered from a worldwide perspective.

Adaptation, specificity and host-parasite coevolution in mites (Acari).

  • International journal for parasitology
  • 1994
Coevolution of host and parasite is studied in the family Myobiidae which parasitizes marsupials, insectivores, bats and rodents, and the concordance between the radiations of the mites and that of their hosts is very high. Expand
Types of parasitism of acarines and insects on terrestrial vertebrates
A classification of the types of parasitism in arthropods is proposed based on their temporal, spatial, and trophic associations with vertebrates. Expand
Adaptation and Transition into Parasitism from Commensalism: A Phoretic Model
A parasite is “any organism that grows, feeds and is sheltered on or in a different organism while contributing nothing to the survival of its host” (The American Heritage Dictionary of the EnglishExpand
Mesostigmatid mites as parasites of small mammals: Systematics, ecology, and the evolution of parasitic associations
This chapter aims to introduce the reader to the systematics, biology, and ecological strategies of dermanyssines associated with small mammals and will examine the evolution of parasitism within this amazingly diverse group of mites. Expand
Living Together: The Parasites of Marine Mammals
The reader may wonder why, within a book of biology and conservation of marine mammals, a chapter should be devoted to their parasites. There are four fundamental reasons. First, parasites representExpand
Phylogeny, host-parasite relationship and zoogeography.

  • 1999
Coevolution of parasites and humans was discussed with special reference to the evolutionary relationship between Enterobius and primates and the theories of parasite evolution were briefly reviewed. Expand
Phylogenetic signals in host–parasite associations for Neotropical bats and Nearctic desert rodents
Phylogenetic signal strength was correlated with host specificity, suggesting that mechanisms increasing host specificity also increase the likelihood of a phylogenetic signal in host use by parasites. Expand
The natural history of ticks.
Ticks have evolved to become one of the most important groups of arthropod vectors of human pathogens and maintenance of water balance during periods of overhydration while feeding and periods of dehydration while fasting is significant in the distribution, survival, activity, and transmission of disease-causing pathogens to humans and animals.

Parasite-host interactions of bat flies (Diptera: Hippoboscoidea) in Brazilian tropical dry forests
The results highlight the low capacity of bat flies to survive on a not usual host especially due to an immunological incompatibility between parasites and hosts and dispersal barriers. Expand
