Avian louse phylogeny (Phthiraptera: Ischnocera): a cladistic study based on morphology
TLDR
Comparison with host taxonomy reveals a series of complex host-parasite associations that do not support a hypothesis of strict one to one cospeciation, and the role of niche specialization to explain the presence of multiple unrelated lineages on the same host taxon is considered.
Speciation Patterns in Chewing Lice from Catharus Thrushes
TLDR
The lack of differentiation and/or cospeciation suggests that host switching or failure to speciate is rampant in this system, and the relationships between chewing lice and their hosts may be better explained by biogeography, habitat, or even barb-size correspondence.
A different tempo of mitochondrial DNA evolution in birds and their parasitic lice.
TLDR
It is suggested that the small effective population sizes of lice coupled with founder events occurring during transmission to new host individuals may be an important factor in the disparity in evolutionary rates between lice and their hosts.
Host switching of human lice to new world monkeys in South America.
Supergroup F Wolbachia bacteria parasitise lice (Insecta: Phthiraptera)
TLDR
A novel mechanism for the horizontal transfer of Wolbachia between different species of lice from birds is proposed: transfer of the bacteria during phoresis by hippoboscid flies.

The trematodes of groupers (Serranidae: Epinephelinae): knowledge, nature and evolution
TLDR
The Epinephelinae may well be typical of most groups of marine fishes both in the extent to which their trematode parasites are known and in that co-evolution has contributed little to the evolution of their communities of trematodes.
Host specificity in bat ectoparasites: a natural experiment.
COEVOLUTION BETWEEN LAMELLODISCUS (MONOGENEA: DIPLECTANIDAE) AND SPARIDAE (TELEOSTEI): THE STUDY OF A COMPLEX HOST-PARASITE SYSTEM
TLDR
Host-parasite associations were interpreted to be due more to ecological factors than to coevolutionary processes, and host specificity appeared not to be related to host-Parasite cospeciation.

Co-evolution of trichodectid lice (Insecta: Phthiraptera) and their mammalian hosts
The cladogram of Trichodectidae produced by Lyal (1985) is interpreted, with reservations, as a phylogeny and is compared to such host phylogenies as are available. While the predominant pattern of
A revision of the Australasian Boopiidae (Insecta : Phthiraptera), with notes on the Trimenoponidae
The louse family Boopiidae, parasitic on marsupials in Australia and New Guinea, is revised on the basis of much new material from wild hosts. Important morphological features, particularly the
Phylogeny inferred from allozymes in the Heterodoxus octoseriatus group of species (Phthiraptera : Boopiidae)
TLDR
Phenetic and phylogenetic relationships in the Heterodoxus octoseriatus group of species were explored with data from 21 putative allozyme loci, and two main lines of evolution were indicated: widespread host-switching followed by the expansion of the geographic ranges of some lice at the expense of others.
Phylogenetic Relationships of Parasitic Psocodea and Taxonomic Position of the Anoplura
TLDR
It is concluded that the sucking lice (Anoplura) are distinct from the chewing lice and should retain the rank of order and the order Mallophaga (including three suborders, Amblycera, Ischnocera, and Rhynchophthirina) must be retained.
Phylogeny and classification of the Psocodea, with particular reference to the lice (Psocodea: Phthiraptera)
TLDR
All lice are believed to have evolved under environmental constraints similar to those operating today, and the origin of the lice is dated as the Cretaceous, but the host of the ancestor of the order is not identified.

Our knowledge of the flea fauna of Australia, including Tasmania and Macquarie I., summarized here, is derived from a large number of collections made since the mid-nineteenth century, and scattered
Parallel Evolution, Cladistics, and Classification of Parasitic Psocodea
TLDR
The view is reaffirmed that the Anoplura are distinct from the Amblycera, Ischnocera, and Rhynchophthirina (order Mallophaga) and should be treated as a separate order.
The evolution of insect/vertebrate associations
TLDR
A hypothesis is presented that competition between ectoparasite species, mediated by host defensive responses, is also important in determining community structure, and it argues that all vertebrate associates have evolved along one of two macroevolutionary pathways which differ only in the sequencing of adaptations facilitating host association and host feeding.
