The phylogenetic position of the Heterodoxus octoseriatus group is inferred from morphological characters. Two character states support monophyly of this group. Another indicates that its sister-group is a group of 11 other Heterodoxus species (here called the H. calabyi group), that infest at least seven other genera of macropodid marsupials. Fourteen potential apomorphies, associated with the male and female genitalia, are identified. Evident rapid and divergent evolution of the genitalia… 
Taxonomic review of the Heterodoxus octoseriatus group (Phthiraptera: Boopiidae) from rock-wallabies with the description of three new species
The morphology of the male genitalia and the internal genital sclerite of the female is described for species of the Heterodoxus octoseriatus group. Homologous sclerites and spines, required for
Relationships within theRugopharynx delta species complex (Nematoda: Strongyloidea) from Australian marsupials inferred from allozyme electrophoretic data
TLDR
The phylogenetic trees derived from the electrophoretic data set were congruent with those of the hosts and were consistent with the hypothesis that the species complex originated in pademelons of the genusThylogale and diversified in rock-wallabies and scrub wallabies of the subgenusNotamacropus.
Cladistic Analysis of Species Infesting (Amblycera: Menoponidae) Fowls of District Hyderabad, Sindh, Pakistan
TLDR
The present research work covers the phylogentic relationship of five species belonging to a family Menoponidae, recovered from variety of fowls as host from district Hyderabad, Sindh Pakistan, and analyses cladistically by cladogram.

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 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.
Congruence Between Morphological and Allozyme Data in Evolutionary Inference and Character Evolution
TLDR
Cladistical rather than phenetic methods are required for the analysis of character evolution, and the ease of obtaining sufficient information, rather than presumed inherent differences between characters, should determine which characters are used for evolutionary taxonomic inference.
Biological and social patterns in the Australian bulldog ants of the genus Myrmecia.
TLDR
The lack of advanced regurgitation and development of trophic oviposition in Myrmecia is discussed in relation to the evolution of ingluvial feeding in other Formicidae.
Evolutionary biology of parasites
TLDR
In demonstrating the importance of parasitic interactions for determining population patterns and geographical distributions, Dr. Price integrates the biological attributes that characterize parasites ranging from such diverse groups as viruses, bacteria, protozoa, and fungi, to helminths, mites, insects, and parasitic flowering plants.
The Phenogram as an Estimate of Phylogeny
TLDR
It is pointed out that, under certain conditions, it becomes irrelevant whether matches in primitive attributes are included or excluded when reconstructing a cladogram (the branching pattern of a phylogeny) by phenetic methods, and that a phenogram therefore supplies a reasonable phylogenetic hypothesis.
