Evolutionary co-variation of host and parasite diversity—the first test of Eichler’s rule using parasitic lice (Insecta: Phthiraptera)
A strong correlation between the species richness of avian and mammalian families and generic richness of their lice is found and it seems possible that this effect contribute considerably to global biodiversity.
Sex-dependent changes in the louse abundance of red-footed falcons (Falco vespertinus)
Investigating how static and dynamic traits of red-footed falcons interplay with the dynamics of their louse subpopulations during breeding and how they affect the colonisation of new hosts by lice found that sex-biased infestation levels likely arise due to parasite preferences in the nestlings and host behavioural processes in the adult falcons.

The Effect of Selective Logging on the Community of Chewing lice and Feather mites Associated with Forests Birds in Sabah, Malaysia
Part I of this four-part series describes how the search for a permanent home for astronaut Tim Peake began and the efforts to find a permanent resting place for the remains of the American space agency, the USGS, ended in disappointment.
Chewing lice (Phthiraptera: Amblycera, Ischnocera) species found on birds in Turkey, with new records and a new host association
In this study, usually 1 or 2 louse species were detected on a single bird, and in only 2 cases, 3 louse Species were found on the same bird.
Taxonomic, ecological and quantitative examination of chewing lice (Insecta: Phthiraptera) on Canada geese (Branta canadensis) and mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) in Manitoba, Canada
Over 19 years chewing lice data from Canada geese and mallards were collected, Anatoecus was found exclusively on the head, Anaticola was found predominantly on the wings, Ciconiphilus, Holomenopon and Ornithobius were observed in several body regions and Trinoton was found most often on the Wings of mallards.

A checklist of feather lice and feather mites from 160 species of birds that nest in terrestrial and aquatic habitats in the grassland biome in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba is provided here.
Diversity and Distribution of Avian Lice on Greater Flamingo Chicks (Phoenicopterus Roseus) in Algeria
Results from the first records for the Greater Flamingo in North Africa, indicate that they were infested by the following louse species: Colpocephalum heterosoma Piaget and Triniton femoratumPiaget (Menoponidae); Anaticola phoenicopteri (Coinde) and Anatoecus pygaspis Nitzsch (Philopteridae).
Malófagos (Phthiraptera, Amblycera, Ischnocera) em aves cativas no sudeste do Brasil
The host-lice relationships are new in Strigiformes in Brazil and the parasites found were: Ciconiphilus pectiniventris in Cygnus atratus, Kurodaia sp.
The Feather Holes on the Barn Swallow Hirundo rustica and Other Small Passerines are Probably Caused by Brueelia Spp. Lice
Abstract Barn swallows Hirundo rustica often have characteristic feather holes on wing and tail feathers. During the past 15 yr, several influential papers have been based on the assumption that
