Phylogenetic analyses for 10 rodent Eimeria species from different host genera based on plastid ORF470 and nuclear 18S rDNA sequences were done to infer the evolutionary relationships of these rodent Eimeria species and their correlation to morphology and host specificity. The phylogenies based on both data sets clearly grouped the 10 rodent Eimeria species into two major lineages, which reflect more their morphological differences than host specificity. Species in lineage A have spheroidal to… Expand
PHYLOGENETIC POSITION OF EIMERIA ANTROZOI, A BAT COCCIDIUM (APICOMPLEXA: EIMERIIDAE) AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO MORPHOLOGICALLY SIMILAR EIMERIA SPP. FROM BATS AND RODENTS BASED ON NUCLEAR 18S AND PLASTID 23S rDNA SEQUENCES
TLDR
The phylogenies based onplastid 23S rDNA data and combined data of both plastid and nuclear genes grouped 2 bat Eimeria and 3 morphologically similar Eimaria species from rodents into 2 separate clades with high bootstrap support, which supports E. antrozoi as a valid species. Expand
Molecular and phylogenetic characterizations of an Eimeria krijgsmanni Yakimoff & Gouseff, 1938 (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) mouse intestinal protozoan parasite by partial 18S ribosomal RNA gene sequence analysis.
TLDR
Based on phylogenetic analyses, the two types of E. krijgsmanni 18S rDNA formed one of two clades among murine Eimeria spp. Expand
Host-Parasite Incongruences in Rodent Eimeria Suggest Significant Role of Adaptation Rather than Cophylogeny in Maintenance of Host Specificity
TLDR
This study extends the data set by adding 71 new sequences of coccidia infecting 16 small-mammal genera, mostly rodents, and confirms the previous hypothesis that Eimeria, in its current morphology-based delimitation, is not a monophyletic group. Expand
Phylogeny of the reptilian Eimeria: are Choleoeimeria and Acroeimeria valid generic names?
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses confirmed the independent evolutionary origin of the Eimeria‐like species infecting lizards and supported the taxonomic validity of the genera Acroeimeria and Choleoeimeria. Expand
Generalist Eimeria species in rodents: multilocus analyses indicate inadequate resolution of established markers
TLDR
It is shown that species-level resolution should not be assumed for COI and 18S markers in Coccidia, and host-parasite co-speciation at shallow phylogenetic nodes, as well as contemporary coccidian host ranges more generally, are still open questions that need to be addressed using novel genetic markers with higher resolution.

Generalist Eimeria species in rodents: Multilocus analyses indicate inadequate resolution of established markers
Abstract Intracellular parasites of the genus Eimeria are described as tissue/host‐specific. Phylogenetic classification of rodent Eimeria suggested that some species have a broader host range thanExpand
Phylogenetic relationships among Eimeria spp. (Apicomplexa, Eimeriidae) infecting rabbits: evolutionary significance of biological and morphological features
TLDR
Monophyly of all 11 valid Eimeria species from rabbits was revealed based on nuclear 18S rDNA sequence data, implying that these species, which vary considerably in terms of their morphology and biology, diversified on a single host or several closely related species. Expand
Species of Eimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) From Tree Squirrels (Sciurus niger) (Rodentia: Sciuridae) and Analysis of the ITS1, ITS2, and 5.8S rDNA
TLDR
Comparison of pairwise distances suggests that E. lancasterensis from Wyoming and Virginia are conspecific, and Maximum Parsimony tree construction identified 2 lineages, one E. ontarioensis and one E., which had a strong bootstrap support and were unable to resolve the Wyoming andVirginia strains. Expand
Third lineage of rodent eimerians: morphology, phylogeny and re-description of Eimeria myoxi (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from Eliomys quercinus (Rodentia: Gliridae)
TLDR
A re-description of Eimeria myoxi is provided, which contains morphological and molecular characteristics sufficient for its further unequivocal identification and suggests that this species does not fall within the 2 known rodent-specific groups but branches as a third independent lineage. Expand
First amplification of Eimeria hessei DNA from the lesser horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus hipposideros) and its phylogenetic relationships with Eimeria species from other bats and rodents.
TLDR
A partial sequence of the Eimeria hessei 18S rRNA gene was isolated from the lesser horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus hipposideros), a European bat species, and it was confirmed to be E. hessei, one of the best-documented parasites in bats. Expand

Taxonomy and systematics of some Eimeria species of murid rodents as determined by the ITS1 region of the ribosomal gene complex.
TLDR
ITS1 sequencing appears to provide data that can be used for taxonomic and phylogenetic studies on the speciose genus Eimeria, and may be especially useful when samples contain insufficient numbers of oocysts for other molecular-based methods, e.g. RAPD-PCR. Expand

TLDR
Riboprinting appears to provide useful data for taxonomic and phylogenetic studies on the genus Eimeria and may be especially practical when samples do not contain enough oocysts for other molecular-based methods. Expand
Polymorphism of eimerian oocysts can be a problem in naturally infected hosts: an example from subterranean rodents in Bolivia.
TLDR
Oocyst and sporocyst lengths and widths cannot be used to separate morphotypes of E. opimi from different Ctenomys spp. Expand

TLDR
This unusually large host range makes this isosporan unique among the coccidia that have been investigated to date, and it is likely that this primate coccidian isospora arctopitheci originated in South America. Expand

This work proposes a specific set of guidelines for the preparation of species descriptions of coccidia based predominently on the structure of the sporulated oocyst, and emphasizes that ancillary data be incorporated whenever possible with the species description. Expand
Evidence for a Single Origin of the 35 kb Plastid DNA in Apicomplexans.
TLDR
Evidence was found that the coccidian plastids may have evolved a suppressor mechanism for UGA stop codons, and provisionally favour a single origin for the entire phylum. Expand

TLDR
Results demonstrate that Peromyscus and Reithrodontomys, genera known to be related very closely evolutionarily, are capable of sharing E. arizonensis, whereas morphologically similar coccidians from more distantly related hosts, are probably distinct and more stenoxenous. Expand
