  • Shirakashi, Sho; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 1999Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 1999)
    A wide variety of parasites are known to cause changes in host behaviour. The altered behaviours range from simple changes in features such as activity and phototaxis, to the creation of behaviours that are new, and often ...
  • Baldwin, Rebecca; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2000Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2000)
    Spatial patterns in parasite communities of freshwater fish are often characterized as low in diversity and unpredictable. Whether or not his view is a true reflection of community patterns is unclear, in particular when ...
  • Schleppe, Jason L.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2002Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2002)
    The population dynamics and life histories of two larval parasites of fathead minnows were investigated, together with their effects on host reproduction in natural populations. In two lakes in northern Alberta, Canada, ...
  • Pearson, Kimberly J.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2004Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2004)
    Species that are introduced outside of their native ranges are an important threat to biodiversity. In southwestern Alberta, Canada, sport and bait fish have been introduced into most waterbodies. I examined the effects ...
  • Skotarek, Sara L.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2008Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2008)
    The cestode Anoplocephala perfoliata is known to cause fatal colic in horses. The epidemiology of the cestode has rarely been evaluated in Canada. I detected A. perfoliata eggs in 4-18% of over 1000 faecal samples collected ...
  • Reimer, Stephanie (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological SciencesArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2015)
    Emerging infectious diseases are one of the factors that have contributed to global amphibian population declines over the past few decades. The recent emergence of the highly virulent Amybstoma tigrinum virus (ATV) in ...
  • Sandland, Gregory J.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 1999Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 1999)
    Determining the extent to which parasites influence natural populaions of hosts is a major focus of studies in parasitology. Addressing this issue requires host-parasite systems that can be monitored under natural conditions ...
  • Matisz, Chelsea E; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Deptartment of Biological Sciences, 2009Arts and ScienceBiological Sciences, 2009)
    Site selection, and the means to access specific sites, is a keystone of parasitology. I evaluated migration and site selection behaviours of metacercariae of two congeneric species of strigeoid trematode throughout ...
  • Barnewall, Emily C; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Department of Biological Sciences, c2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2011)
    Yellow toadflax, Linaria vulgaris (L.) Mill. (Plantaginaceae), is a non-native invasive plant. Rhinusa pilosa Germar (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) is a proposed biocontrol agent. Gall development by R. pilosa was described ...
  • Hudson, Andrew John (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological SciencesArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Science, 2014)
    Spliceosomal introns interrupt protein coding genes in all characterized eukaryotic nuclear genomes and are removed by a large RNA-protein complex termed the spliceosome. Diplomonads are diverse unicellular eukaryotes that ...
