Host-parasite co-speciation: history, principles, and prospects






Host parasite evolution: general principles and avian models: 212-235

Host-parasite co-speciation: history, principles, and prospects

This review discusses: a historical perspective of relationships among parasites and their avian hosts (the North American and the German schools); empirical evidence - parallel cladogenesis and host specificity (lice and other arthropods, tapeworms and other helminth parasites); decoupling host specificity from co-speciation; a new co-speciation paradigm - the conceptual setting; assessing phylogenetic patterns of parasites and their hosts (parsimony analysis, component analysis, other systems examined phylogenetically, the avian phylogenetics database).
