The range of the barred owl (Strix varia) has expanded westward over the past century and now entirely overlaps the range of the federally threatened northern spotted owl (S. occidentalis caurina) in the Pacific Northwest. We compared Haemoproteus blood parasite assemblages among northern spotted owls in their native range and barred owls in both their native and invasive ranges to evaluate predictions of five hypotheses about parasites and biological invasions: (1) Enemy Release, where hosts… Expand
Spillover but no spillback of two invasive parasitic copepods from invasive Pacific oysters (Crassostrea gigas) to native bivalve hosts
TLDR
The high frequency of M. orientalis spillover, in particular to native mussels, suggests that Pacific oysters may cause strong parasite-mediated indirect impacts on native bivalve populations. Expand
The Journal of Wildlife Management
Barred owls (Strix varia) are forest‐dwelling owls, native to eastern North America, with populations that expanded westward into the range of the spotted owl (Strix occidentalis). Barred owls exertExpand
Potential trophic cascades triggered by the barred owl range expansion
TLDR
It is posited that shared prey species and those uniquely consumed by barred owls, along with other competing native predators, may experience changes in behavior, abundance, and distribution as a result of increased rates of predation by rapidly expanding populations of barred Owls. Expand
Host dispersal and landscape conversion are associated with the composition of haemosporidian parasites of the golden-winged warbler
TLDR
Golden-winged warblers may have been sensitive to novel parasites as they dispersed, and the high prevalence and diversity of parasite lineages in the north-west extent of their breeding range (Manitoba) indicates that this population may face unique pressures. Expand
The things they carried: The pathogenic effects of old and new parasites following the intercontinental invasion of the Australian cane toad (Rhinella marina)
TLDR
Both novel and co-evolved pathogens and parasites may have played significant roles in shaping the rapid evolution of immune system responses in cane toads within their invaded range. Expand
Review of the effects of barred owls on spotted owls
Barred owls (Strix varia) are forest‐dwelling owls, native to eastern North America, with populations that expanded westward into the range of the spotted owl (Strix occidentalis). Barred owls exertExpand
Chapter 4: Northern spotted owl habitat and populations: status and threats
The northern spotted owl (Strix occidentalis caurina) was listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act in 1990 (USFWS 1990). Providing adequate amounts of suitable forest cover to sustainExpand
Case Series: Virulent hemosporidiosis infections in juvenile great horned owls (Bubo virginianus) from Louisiana and California, USA.
TLDR
This is the first identification of Leucocytozoon lineages that have been associated with mortality in young great horned owls. Expand

Understanding factors that influence the spatial and temporal distributions of blood parasites is important to help predict how host species and their parasites may respond to global change. FactorsExpand
Molecular detection and phylogenetic relationship of Haemosporida parasites in free-ranging wild raptors from Brazil.
TLDR
Nine lineages of Haemosporidian parasites are demonstrated in free-living species of Brazilian birds of prey, being six of them potential novel lineages, suggesting that information currently available on South-American haemospora from these birds greatly underestimate the potential lineage diversity in this region.

Blood Parasites in Owls with Conservation Implications for the Spotted Owl (Strix occidentalis)
TLDR
Sequencing results revealed that the Northern and California Spotted Owl subspecies together had the highest number of Leucocytozoon parasite lineages and unique lineages, and a Plasmodium parasite was documented in a Northern Spotted Owls for the first time. Expand
Introduced brown trout alter native acanthocephalan infections in native fish.
TLDR
Investigation of whether native Acanthocephalus galaxii acquisition by brown trout alters host-parasite dynamics in native roundhead galaxias supports the hypothesis that trout may serve as an infection sink for the native parasite, and model exploration indicates parasite densities in Galaxias are highly sensitive to galaxia predation on infected amphipods, and to relative abundances of galaxIAS and trout.

THE EPIZOOTIOLOGY AND ECOLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF MALARIA IN HAWAIIAN LAND BIRDS
TLDR
Avian malaria probably did not reach epizootic proportions on Hawaii until after 1920, but since that time it has had a negative impact on the population dynamics of the native forest birds and is today a major limiting factor, restricting both abundance and distribution of these species on the island. Expand
Prevalence and diversity patterns of avian blood parasites in degraded African rainforest habitats
TLDR
It is found that the prevalence of Leucocytozoon and Haemoproteus infections were significantly higher in undisturbed than in deforested habitats, demonstrating that anthropogenic habitat change can affect host–parasite systems and result in opposing trends in prevalence of haemosporidian parasites in wild bird populations. Expand
Is invasion success explained by the enemy release hypothesis
TLDR
Given the complexity of processes that underlie biological invasions, it is argued against a simple relationship between enemy ‘release’ and the vigour, abundance or impact of NIS. Expand
Diversity, Prevalence, and Host Specificity of Avian Plasmodium and Haemoproteus in a Western Amazon Assemblage
TLDR
Within a local Neotropical assemblage of avian haemosporidia, community organization is highly complex and part of this complexity can be attributed to differences in host life history; diversity, particularly of Plasmodium spp. Expand
Community relationships of avian malaria parasites in southern missouri
TLDR
Host-parasite relationships in a local area, including the role of parasites in sexual selection and the evolutionary maintenance of sex, are likely to be complex, with population and evolutionary dynamics involving many actors. Expand
Release from Parasites as Natural Enemies: Increased Performance of a Globally Introduced Marine Crab
TLDR
A global assessment of the effect of parasitism and predation on the ecological performance of European green crab populations found that introduced species suffer less from parasites compared to populations where they are native. Expand
Range Expansion of Barred Owls, Part I: Chronology and Distribution
TLDR
More than 12,500 records of Barred Owls in their expanded range from the earliest records to the present are mapped, the species' distribution is drawn and the general timing and flow of the range expansion is inferred. Expand
Hematozoa from the Spotted Owl
TLDR
