The haemoproteids of the avian family Cuculidae are reviewed and a redescription of Haemoproteus centropi of the Centropodinae presented. Haemoproteus cuculis sp. nov. and Haemoproteus clamatori sp. nov. are described from the Cuculinae. 

A checklist of the valid avian species of Babesia (Apicomplexa: Piroplasmorida), Haemoproteus, Leucocytozoon (Apicomplexa: Haemosporida), and Hepatozoon (Apicomplexa: Haemogregarinidae)

A current checklist of valid avian species of Babesia, Haemoproteus, Hepatozoon, and Leucocytozoon is presented. Some taxonomic problems which have arisen since the last review are discussed as too

Keys to the avian Haemoproteus parasites (Haemosporida, Haemoproteidae)

It is shown that 177 described species of avian Haemoproteus can be distinguished and identified in blood films using morphological characters of their gametocytes and host cells.

VARIATION IN HOST SPECIFICITY BETWEEN SPECIES OF AVIAN HEMOSPORIDIAN PARASITES: EVIDENCE FROM PARASITE MORPHOLOGY AND CYTOCHROME B GENE SEQUENCES

A parasite's shift to a new host may have serious evolutionary consequences, since host switching usually is associated with a change in virulence and may lead to the evolution of emerging diseases.

Prevalence and diversity of avian malaria parasites in migratory Black Skimmers (Rynchops niger, Laridae, Charadriiformes) from the Brazilian Amazon Basin

The fact that avian malarial parasites have been found infecting the Black Skimmers in the Brazilian Amazon ecosystem, which exhibits considerable diversity, highlights the importance of these migratory birds as a potential source of infection and dispersion of pathogens to other susceptible birds of the Nearctic and Neotropical regions.

Avian haemoproteidae. I. Description of Haemoproteus fallisi n. sp. and a review of the haemoproteids of the family Turdidae.

H. fallisi is compared with other haemoproteids described from the Turdidae and is distinguished from H. danilewskyi by its larger size and by the fact that it surrounds the host cell nucleus and occupies nearly all of thehost cell cytoplasm.
