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).

In parasitic taxa, life history traits such as microhabitat preference and host specificity can result in differential evolutionary responses to similar abiotic events. The present study investigates the influence of vicariance and host associatio...

Ecological factors play an important role in the evolution of parasite exploitation strategies. A common prediction is that, as shorter host life span reduces future opportunities of transmission, parasites compensate with an evolutionary shift to...

Using species-level phylogenies, the speciation mode of Gyrodactylus species infecting a single host genus was evaluated. Eighteen Gyrodactylus species were collected from gobies of the genus Pomatoschistus and sympatric fish species across the di...
