.Ademas, contribuyen a elucidar relacionesfilogeneticas entre miembros de la clase Aves,debido a que muchos generos de piojos estanrestringidos a ciertos ordenes de aves, y a su vez,algunas especies dentro de determinados generospueden estar restringidas a una sola especie dehospedador o a varias subespecies 
Ectoparasitos de animais silvestres no Maranhão
The objective of this study was to identify the ectoparasites of wild animals received by the Center of Wild Animals of Sao Luis, Maranhao, Brazil and register the infestation of wild mammals, reptiles and birds by ectoporasites.
Contributions to the knowledge of lice diversity (Phthiraptera: Amblycera and Ischnocera) in birds from Peru
Ten species of lice distributed in three families were identified: three species of the Menoponidae family, five species of Philopteridae and two species of Ricinidae collected from seven species of birds.
Chewing lice (Phthiraptera: Amblycera, Ischnocera) from Red Sea gulls with new host-parasite records.
Five species of gulls were examined for chewing lice in three different localities of the Saudi Arabian Red Sea coast and four species and two subspecies of lice were identified.
Community structure of lice (Insecta: Phthiraptera) from two sympatric gull species: kelp gull (Larus dominicanus) and Franklin's gull (Larus pipixcan) in Talcahuano, Chile.
The louse Saemundssonia lari (O Fabricius) (Phthiraptera: Philopteridae) was the most numerous on both gull species, with infestation rates of 4.9 on kelp gulls and 1.8 on Franklin's gulls; the composition and community structure of the lice were similar on both host species, but not theirinfestation rates.
Lice of Chilean Diurnal Raptors
Species of lice collected from 12 species of Chilean diurnal raptors are described and it is found that in Chilean Falconiformes Colpocephalum turbinatum Denny, 1842 is the louse species associated with the greatest number of raptor species, and the degree of host-specificity is high.
External and gastrointestinal parasites of the Franklin's Gull, Leucophaeus pipixcan (Charadriiformes: Laridae), in Talcahuano, central Chile.
To describe its parasitic community, a total of 60 Franklin's gulls were captured in the coastal area in central Chile, using modified Bal-chatri traps, and some 25 of 30 (83.3%) of birds necropsied were parasitized with the following helminths: Aporchis sp.


The identity of Quadraceps crassipedalis (Harrison) and two new species of Quadraceps (Mallophaga: Philopteridae)
Deux especes nouvelles sont decrites: Quadraceps ruficollis parasite de Oreopholus ruficollis d'Argentine et du Chili et Q. rubricollis parasite de Charadrius rubricollis de Tasmanie
Molecular Systematics of Goniodidae (Insecta: Phthiraptera)
Parsimony and likelihood analyses of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences support monophyly for a restricted definition of traditional Goniodidae, but recognition of this family would result in paraphyly of the large heterogeneous family Philopteridae.
A new synonymy and new records of Quadraceps (Insecta: Phthiraptera: Philopteridae) from the Galápagos Islands
The swallow‐tailed gull from the Galapagos Islands is regarded as the regular host for Q. paludicola and is also the type host of Q. ernstmayri, which is included in an annotated checklist together with all Quadraceps taxa previously known from those islands.
The Genus Heteromenopon (Mallophaga: Menoponidae), with Description of a New Subgenus and Six New Species
The genus Heteromenopon Carriker is divided into 2 subgenera, Heteromenopon with 10 species from Neotropical parrots, and KEAMENOPON , new subgenus, with 2 species from Australian and New Zealand
The population genetics of host specificity: genetic differentiation in dove lice (Insecta: Phthiraptera)
Examining the genetic structure in the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I (COI) gene of two genera of lice occurring on multiple sympatric species of doves in southern North and Central America found that species of Physconelloides exhibited more genetic structure than did species of Columbicola.
It is concluded that cowbird fledglings carry away host lice and that the technique provides a partial assessment of parasitism patterns, which supports the interpretation that lack of opportunity due to physical isolation has been the fundamental factor in the host specificity of lice in certain avian orders.
Disparate rates of molecular evolution in cospeciating hosts and parasites.
DNA sequences for the gene encoding mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I in a group of rodents and their ectoparasites provide evidence for cospeciation and reveal different rates of molecular evolution in the hosts and their parasites.
Visual examination, the only method not requiring that lice be removed from the host, was an accurate predictor of louse abundance, except in the case of wing lice on lightly parasitized birds.
