A checklist of host-parasite interaction of the order Crocodylia

Author: Marisa Tellez
Publisher: Berkeley, California : University of California Press, [2013] ©2013
Series: University of California publications in zoology, v. 136.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English
Summary:
"Records of parasitism in crocodilians date back to the early 1800s, distributed among published and unpublished manuscripts, and international parasite catalogs. It is possible that parasites of crocodilians are highly host-specific, resulting in a relationship that began over 200 million years ago. Analyzing parasite-host specificity, geographic distribution, and taxonomy can provide otherwise cryptic details  Read more...

   schema:description ""Records of parasitism in crocodilians date back to the early 1800s, distributed among published and unpublished manuscripts, and international parasite catalogs. It is possible that parasites of crocodilians are highly host-specific, resulting in a relationship that began over 200 million years ago. Analyzing parasite-host specificity, geographic distribution, and taxonomy can provide otherwise cryptic details about crocodilian ecology and evolution, as well as their local food web dynamics. This information may also be useful to implement improved conservation tactics for both crocodilians and their habitat. As climate change, anthropogenic conflict, and environmental pollution endanger crocodilian ecosystems, there is a need for organized information on crocodile, alligator, caiman, and gharial infectious diseases. This is the first checklist of crocodilians and their parasites. I trust this compilation will encourage further studies that incorporate ecology, parasitology, phylogeography, coevolution, and immunology to bring insight to crocodilian life-history, evolution, and conservation. Additionally, this information may encourage veterinarians, biologists, and ecologists to expand studies of other reptilian-parasite systems, and perhaps improve our understanding of human impacts on ecosystems."--Page xi."@en ;
