Parasite Diversity and Diversification brings together two active fields of research, phylogenetics and evolutionary ecology, to reveal and explain the patterns of parasite diversity and the diversification of their hosts. This book will encourage students and researchers in the fields of ecology and evolution of parasitism, as well as animal and human health, to integrate phylogenetics into the investigation of parasitism in evolutionary ecology Format: Hardcover. A valuable, new source, Molecular Medical Parasitology is the only text of its kind -- one that applies broad concepts and current scientific advances from both molecular biology and biochemistry to the study of parasitic organisms. An internationally renowned team of scientists and physicians places parasites in their broad biological contexts while still emphasizing the specifics that differentiate . In this book, expert contributors from around the world comprehensively review the current advances in Plasmodium comparative genomics, highlighting the fascinating new insights into parasite evolution and molecular biology that have : Hardcover. @article{osti_, title = {Molecular evolutionary genetics}, author = {Nei, M.}, abstractNote = {Spectacular progress has been made recently in the study of evolution at the molecular level, primarily due to new biochemical techniques such as gene cloning and DNA sequencing.

Parasites are everywhere. And they affect almost every aspect imaginable in the life of their hosts. Parasites influence host physiology, behavior, life histories, and the structure of entire ecosystems. To cope with these constant threats, the host's immune system has evolved to become one of the most complex organs known. But parasites, too, have found their own ways to overcome defences and. Genetics, immunity, and parasite survival. Cycling and non-cycling populations of red grouse. Schistosome and snail populations. Ecological and evolutionary dynamics of parasites. The gene-for-gene hypothesis: parable or paradigm. Bacteria and phage. Host-parasite associations: their population biology and population genetics. Three areas currently evoke great interest among ecologists considering how parasites have directed their hosts' evolution. First, the role that parasites play in driving sexual selection in their hosts. Second, the role that parasites play in structuring host life histories, and finally the extent to which co-speciation has occurred between hosts and parasites. All three areas are prominent in this book, Author: Ben Sheldon. Yet, host-parasite coevolution requires host susceptibility and parasite virulence to be genetically variable. In spite of evolutionary and epidemiological implications of genetic heterogeneities in host-parasite systems, evidence concerning natural populations is still by:
