This paper examines patterns in the linear distribution of helminths in the small intestine of each of 45 scaup. Over all birds, most common species of helminths were found in over half of the smal... 
Helminth communities in avian hosts: determinants of pattern
TLDR
The intent in this section is to highlight, briefly, important events leading towards the study of helminth communities in avian hosts. Expand
Intestinal helminth communities in long‐billed curlews: the importance of congeneric host‐specialists
This paper examines patterns of structure in the helminth communities of long-billed curlews collected on their breeding grounds in Alberta, Canada. The communities are neither large nor species richExpand
Intestinal helminths of lesser scaup ducks: patterns of association
The helminth communities of the small intestines of 45 lesser scaup ducks sampled from 13 lakes in Alberta, Canada, were examined for patterns of association among species. A core of eight frequent,Expand
The structure of the community of strongyloid nematodes of domestic equids.
TLDR
Multivariate analyses provided evidence of a stable community of helminths dominated by positive interactions but with few negative interactions, suggesting the absence of competition within the community. Expand
The Community Structure of Ticks on Kudu, Tragelaphus strepsiceros , in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa
TLDR
The relationship between each group and its host species for such parameters as ratio of body size, intrinsic population growth rate, life span and the pathological significance of their interaction are comparable but significantly different from microparasites (viruses, bacteria, protozoans) and parasitoids. Expand
Spatio-temporal structure of the communities of helminths in the digestive tract of Sciaena umbra L. 1758 (Teleostei).
TLDR
The helminth community in the digestive tract of the sedentary predatory fish, Sciaena umbra, near the Scandola Nature Reserve, Corsica, consists of 5 species of digeneans, and Anoiktostoma coronatum and Metadena pauli were found in almost all the fish, and in high numbers; they are considered core species. Expand
Spatiotemporal distributions of intestinal helminths in female lesser scaup Aythya affinis during spring migration from the upper Midwest, USA
TLDR
It is suggested that spatiotemporal variations play an important role in the structure of intestinal helminth infracommunities found in migrating lesser scaup hosts, and may therefore impact host ability to build endogenous reserves at certain stopover locations in the Midwest. Expand
Coexistence in helminths of the bank vole Clethrionomys glareolus. I: Patterns of co-occurrence
TLDR
The rarity of significant overall associations among helminth species in the presence-absence data and total absence in the density data support the idea of independent co-occurrence. Expand
POTENTIAL INTERACTIONS BETWEEN THE INTESTINAL HELMINTHS OF THE CICHLID FISH CICHLASOMA SYNSPILUM FROM SOUTHEASTERN MEXICO
This study presents and analyzes positional data on 18 helminth species forming the intestinal infracommunities of 59 Cichlasoma synspilum from southeastern Mexico. Interspecific interactions wereExpand
Gastrointestinal Helminth Communities of Bobwhite Quail
TLDR
This community, while not characterized by high species richness, is readily colonized and exhibits evidence of inter- and intraspecific interaction, which does not conform to current models of parasite community structure. Expand

Mutualism among parasitic nematodes: A population model
TLDR
Exploration of the model suggests that M. apri may be facultative mutualist and M. pudendotectus may be obligate mutualist, while an apparently mutualistic association between Metastrongylus apri and M.'s pudends is analyzed using a compartment model. Expand
Experimental concurrent infections with Strongyloides ratti and S. venezuelensis in laboratory rats.
TLDR
It was concluded that, although occurring together, the two species can coexist in the intestine without interfering with each other. Expand

TLDR
Two studies indicated that the relationship between acanthocephalans and tapeworms might profitably be studied, and the effects of concurrent infections on Hymenolepis diminuta and Moniliformis dubius are determined. Expand
Concurrent infections of Hymenolepis diminuta and Trichinella spiralis in the rat intestine.
The intestinal distribution of Trichinella spiralis and Hymenolepis diminuta in rats was studied in single and concurrent infections. Results showed that the location of T. spiralis was notExpand
Co-existence of congeneric species of acanthocephala: Acanthocephalus lucii and A. anguillae in eels Anguilla anguilla in Ireland.
TLDR
Congeneric species of acanthocephalans can co-exist in apparently stable equilibrium in fish as predicted and without any evidence of interactions, but it is still considered that exploitation competition between the species may be occurring in eels. Expand
Vacant niches and unsaturated communities: a comparison of bracken herbivores at sites on two continents.
TLDR
These results for bracken are probably representative of phytophagous insect communities in general, in that such communities appear rarely to be saturated with species, and are not structured to any major extent by interspecific competition. Expand
Habitat Associations and Community Structure of Birds in Shrubsteppe Environments
TLDR
The relations between bird distribution and abundance and habitat characteristics at a regional scale of investigation, using surveys conducted over three consecutive years on 14 plots at nine locations in the shrubsteppe of the northwestern Great Basin of North America, suggest that bird populations in this system vary largely independently of one another.

Two Cases of Resource Partitioning in an Intertidal Community: Making the Right Prediction for the Wrong Reason
TLDR
Predictions generated by two models which might be used in the construction of a general competition-based theory of the structure of an intertidal community are tested, suggesting that their simplifying assumptions are based on parameters sufficient to describe the community process in question.
