A global map of dominant malaria vectors
Parasites & Vectors 2012, 5:69 (4 April 2012)
We describe the generation of a global map of the dominant vector species (DVS) of malaria created by combining evidence-based predicted distribution maps for individual species or species complexes. Image: The distribution of dominant malaria vectors in Africa.

Fellow travellers: a concordance of colonization patterns between mice and men in the North Atlantic region
BMC Evolutionary Biology 2012, 12:35 (19 March 2012)
Colonization of the North Atlantic region by house mice, and the genetic diversity of individuals within these populations, closely mimics that of human settlers, reflecting the human history of colonization in this area
DNA barcoding reveals both known and novel taxa in the Albitarsis Group ( Anopheles: Nyssorhynchus) of Neotropical malaria vectors
Parasites & Vectors 2012, 5:44 (21 February 2012)
DNA barcoding provides a reliable means of identifying both known and undiscovered biodiversity within the Albitarsis Group (Anopheles: Nyssorhynchus). These results show support for species level status of the six known species and two previously detected lineages. In addition, the presence of a new mitochondrial lineage in Brazil is shown.

Integrated prevalence mapping of schistosomiasis, soil-transmitted helminthiasis and malaria in lakeside and island communities in Lake Victoria, Uganda
Parasites & Vectors 2011, 4:232 (13 December 2011)
This fish landing site and associated community is typical of others in Lake Victoria. Here, the burdens of malaria, schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminths are very high and pose a particular challenge for disease surveillance and control. Image: An island community.

Forgotten forests - issues and prospects in biome mapping using Seasonally Dry Tropical Forests as a case study
BMC Ecology 2011, 11:27 (24 November 2011)
Current biome maps of South America perform poorly in depicting seasonally dry tropical forest distribution due to poor spatial resolution and biome delimitation and may be improved by the use of georeferenced herbarium data in conjunction with bioclimatic data.
Three-dimensional visualisation of developmental stages of an apicomplexan fish blood parasite in its invertebrate host
Parasites & Vectors 2011, 4:219 (22 November 2011)
New insights into the developmental stages of a marine fish haemogregarine within its invertebrate host were revealed by 3D imaging through infected leech salivary gland cells.

A hitchhikers guide to the Galápagos: co-phylogeography of Galápagos mockingbirds and their parasites
BMC Evolutionary Biology 2011, 11:284 (3 October 2011)
Combining sequence data from rare mockingbirds and their host-specific parasites on the Galapogos Islands increases confidence in the inferred mockingbird phylogeny than using host data alone, leading to more accurate predictions about population structure and effective conservation.

Genomes and geography: genomic insights into the evolution and phylogeography of the genus Schistosoma
Parasites & Vectors 2011, 4:131 (7 July 2011)
This review summarises the role of genomic information in understanding the evolution of Schistosoma blood flukes. It combines evidence from molecular phylogenetics, genomics and cytogenetics in order to understand the major evolutionary events that may have occurred during speciation and divergence of the African and Asian Schistosoma species.
