The ecological niche of a parasite exists only at the nexus of certain abiotic and biotic conditions suitable for both the definitive and intermediate hosts....

Predicting the potential distribution of Vexillata (Nematoda: Ornithostrongylidae) and its hosts (Mammalia: Rodentia) within America
It is identified that temperature seasonality is a significant environmental factor that influences the distribution of the parasite genus and its host, and the geographical distribution of Vexillata spp.
The role of ecology in the geographical separation of blood parasites infecting an insular bird
This study shows that different parasite lineages, contained within broadly defined parasitic taxa, may have very different ecologies, and that these differ- ences should be taken into account when attempting to understand the ecolog- ical determinants of parasite distribution and disease emergence.
The spatial analysis of biological interactions: morphological variation responding to the co‐occurrence of competitors and resources
It is found that H. leucotis shows an important morphological variability across its range and two groups can be recognized; Surprisingly, morphological variation is not always linked to local hummingbird richness or the phylogenetic similarity of.
El área de distribución de las especies: revisión del concepto
The geographical distribution is an important concept in biological sciences, however in some cases it has been interpreted inadequately. We consider that the unified species concept can help to
Using Gordiid cysts to discover the hidden diversity, potential distribution, and new species of Gordiids (Phylum Nematomorpha).
In this study, we sampled aquatic snails for the presence of hairworm cysts from 46 streams in Payne County, Oklahoma. Gordiid cysts were found at 70 % (32/46) of sites examined. Based on cyst
How Climate Change Will Alter the Distribution of Suitable Dendrobium Habitats
To protect endangered species and restore their habitats, it is important to be able to predict their potential geographic distributions. The Dendrobium plant is important in traditional Chinese

A new species and a new natural hybrid of Laelia (Orchidaceae) from Oaxaca, Mexico
A new species, Laelia halbingeriana , and a new natural hybrid, Laelia ×oaxacana , both from the Sierra Madre Oriental in northern Oaxaca, Mexico, are described and illustrated. Laelia halbingeriana
Prevalence, Distribution, and Development of an Ecological Niche Model of Dermacentor variabilis Ticks Positive for Rickettsia montanensis.
DNA was extracted from American dog ticks removed from Department of Defense personnel and their dependents at DoD medical treatment facilities (MTFs) during 2002-2012 and results suggest that R. montanensis-positive and -negative D. variabilis have different ranges where humans may be at risk and are influenced by similar and different factors.
Finding Them Before They Find Us: Informatics, Parasites, and Environments in Accelerating Climate Change
A general protocol, documentation–assessment–monitoring–action (DAMA), suggests an integrated proposal to build a proactive capacity to understand, anticipate, and respond to the outcomes of accelerating environmental change.


Faunal Diversity among Avian Parasite Assemblages: The Interaction of History, Ecology, and Biogeography in Marine Systems
Systematics and parasite biodiversity provide power and predictability in broad studies of history, ecology and biogeography in marine systems, and a predictive framework exists for elucidating the impacts of natural or anthropogenic perturbations to faunas and ecosystems.
