Background: The leishmaniases are neglected diseases that affect some of the most vulnerable populations in the tropical and sub-tropical world. The parasites are transmitted by sand flies and novel strategies to control this neglected vector-borne disease are needed. Blocking transmission by targeting the parasite inside the phlebotomine vector offers potential in this regard. Some experimental approaches can be best performed by longitudinal study of parasites within flies, for which non-destructive methods to identify infected flies and to follow parasite population changes are required. Methods: Lutzomyia longipalpis were reared under standard insectary conditions at the Wellcome Centre for Molecular Parasitology. Flies were artificially infected with L. tarentolae expressing green fluorescent protein (GFP. Parasite counts were carried out 5 days post-infection and the percentage of infected flies and survival of infected females was established up to days 5 post-infection. Whole living females were visualised using an epifluorescence inverted microscope to detect the presence parasites inferred by a localised green fluorescent region in the upper thorax. Confirmation of infection was performed by localised-fluorescence of dissected flies and estimates of the parasite population.

Results: Leishmania tarentolae was successfully transfected and expressed GFP in vitro. L. tarentolae-GFP Infected flies showed similar parasite populations when compared to non-transfected parasites (L. tarentolae-WT). Survival of non-infected females was higher than L. tarentolae-infected groups, (Log-rank (Mantel-Cox) test, p<0.05). L. tarentolae-GFP infected females displayed an intense localised fluorescence in the thorax while other specimens from the same infected group did not. Localised fluorescent flies were dissected and showed higher parasite populations compared to those that did not demonstrate high concentrations in this region (t-test, p<0.005). Conclusion: These results demonstrate the feasibility of establishing a safe non-human infectious fluorescent Leishmania-sand fly infection model by allowing non-destructive imaging to signal the establishment of Leishmania infections in living sand flies.

Resumen en inglés

This book summarizes current advances in our understanding of how infectious disease represents an ecological interaction between a pathogenic microorganism and the host species in which that microbe causes illness. The contributing authors explain that pathogenic microorganisms often also have broader ecological connections, which can include a natural environmental presence; possible transmission by vehicles such as air, water, and food; and interactions with other host species, including vectors for which the microbe either may or may not be pathogenic. This field of science has been dubbed disease ecology, and the chapters that examine it have been grouped into three sections. The first section introduces both the role of biological community interactions and the impact of biodiversity on infectious disease. In turn, the second section considers those diseases directly affecting humans, with a focus on waterborne and foodborne illnesses, while also examining the critical aspect of microbial biofilms. Lastly, the third section presents the ecology of infectious diseases from the perspective of their impact on mammalian livestock and wildlife as well as on humans. Given its breadth of coverage, the volume offers a valuable resource for microbial ecologists and biomedical scientists alike.

Resumen en inglés

This survey examined the association between the hyperiid amphipod Hyperoche martinezii and ctenophores off the Argentinian coast (38°08′17″S, 57°31′18″W) through the evaluation of seasonality, prevalence and intensity of infection during an annual cycle. Medusae were also examined but only the ctenophores Mnemiopsis leidyi, Pleurobrachia pileus and Beroe ovata showed this association during the austral mid-spring to mid-summer. A total of 502 hyperiids were obtained; most (422 individuals) were larval stages, 53 juveniles and 27 adults. Mnemiopsis leidyi had the highest number of hyperiids with 98.6%, followed by P. pileus (0.80%), and B. ovata (0.60%). Total prevalence was 2.0 and intensity of infection ranged between 1 and 17 hyperiids per ctenophore. The host with highest prevalence was B. ovata (4.54), followed by M. leidyi (3.76) and P. pileus (0.1). Prevalence values had some correlations with the increase in the total length of B. ovata (r = 0.480, P = 0.006) and M. leidyi (r = 0.501, P < 0.001), and between total length and intensity in B. ovata (r = 0.425, P = 0.017). The hyperiid was found in different parts of the host body: larval stages were found in the canal close to the subtentacular comb row and the stomodeum, whereas juvenile/adult stages were observed with a resting posture on the external surface of the ctenophores. The known geographic distribution of H. martinezii was extended; this finding represents the addition of three new hosts for this hyperiid.

Resumen en español

La roya del café, Hemileia vastatrix Berk. & Br. (Uredinales: Chaconiaceae), es la enfermedad más importante del café arábica (Coffea arabica L.) a nivel mundial, ya que provoca la caída prematura de las hojas, una severa reducción en la producción de fruto y el debilitamiento y muerte de las plantas enfermas (APS, 2011). Debido a que el cultivo del café es considerado como el producto agrícola más importante en el comercio internacional, una reducción en el rendimiento del fruto causado por H. vastatrix puede tener un gran impacto en los países productores cuya economía depende de forma importante de las exportaciones de café (APS, 2011). Numerosos estudios dedicados a esta enfermedad han investigado la relación huésped-patógeno, y los factores bióticos y abióticos que favorecen el establecimiento y el éxito de la infección por H. vastatrix. Sin embargo, aún se desconocen los mecanismos por los que las enfermedades afectan la distribución de nutrientes, y su relación con la inducción de la respuesta de defensa en las plantas (Silva et al., 2006). Los nutrientes pueden influir en la evolución de una enfermedad, al afectar la fisiología vegetal, a los patógenos, o a ambos (Dordas, 2008). La disponibilidad de nutrientes en los tejidos influye en el desarrollo de las plantas, lo que puede afectar las condiciones que facilitan el establecimiento de la infección y la esporulación del patógeno (Marschner, 1995). Además, los nutrientes pueden modificar la integridad de las paredes celulares, la fuga de metabolitos a través de las membranas y la composición química de los tejidos (Graham and Webb, 1991).

Macrodinychus mites as parasitoids of invasive ants: an overlooked parasitic association

Resumen en inglés

Mites are frequent ant symbionts, yet the exact nature of their interactions with their hosts is poorly known. Generally, myrmecophilous mites show adaptations for dispersal through phoresis, but species that lack such an adaptation may have evolved unusual specialized relationships with their hosts. The immature stages of Macrodinychus multispinosus develop as ectoparasitoids of pupae of the invasive ant Paratrechina longicornis. Feeding stages show regressed locomotor appendages. These mites complete their development on a single host, sucking all of its body content and therefore killing it. Locally high proportions of parasitized host pupae suggest that M. multispinosus could serve as a biological control agent. This is the ninth species of Macrodinychus reported as ant parasite, and the third known as parasitoid of invasive ants, confirming a unique habit in the evolution of mite feeding strategies and suggesting that the entire genus might be parasitic on ants. Several mites’ characteristics, such as their protective morphology, possible viviparity, lack of a specialized stage for phoretic dispersal, and low host specificity, combined with both the general low aggressiveness of invasive P. longicornis towards other ants and its possible susceptibility to generalist ectoparasites would account for the host shift in native macrodinychid mites.

Resumen en inglés

Communication in ants is based to a great extent on chemical compounds. Recognition of intruders is primarily based on cuticular hydrocarbon (CHC) profile matching but is prone to being cheated. Eucharitid wasps are specific parasitoids of the brood of ants; the immature stages are either well integrated within the colony or are protected within the host cocoons, whereas adult wasps at emergence must leave their host nest to reproduce and need to circumvent the ant recognition system to escape unscathed. The behavioral interactions between eucharitid wasps and workers of their host, the Neotropical ant Ectatomma tuberculatum, are characterized. In experimental bioassays, newly emerged parasitoids were not violently aggressed. They remained still and were grabbed by ants upon contact and transported outside the nest; host workers were even observed struggling to reject them. Parasitoids were removed from the nest within five minutes, and most were unharmed, although two wasps (out of 30) were killed during the interaction with the ants. We analyzed the CHCs of the ant and its two parasitoids, Dilocantha lachaudii and Isomerala coronata, and found that although wasps shared all of their compounds with the ants, each wasp species had typical blends and hydrocarbon abundance was also species specific. Furthermore, the wasps had relatively few CHCs compared to E. tuberculatum (22–44% of the host components), and these were present in low amounts. Wasps, only partially mimicking the host CHC profile, were immediately recognized as alien and actively removed from the nest by the ants. Hexane-washed wasps were also transported to the refuse piles, but only after being thoroughly inspected and after most of the workers had initially ignored them.

Being recognized as intruder may be to the parasitoids’ advantage, allowing them to quickly leave the natal nest, and therefore enhancing the fitness of these very short lived parasitoids. We suggest that eucharitids take advantage of the hygienic behavior of ants to quickly escape from their host nests.

Resumen en español

Se estudió a las moscas parásitas (Diptera: Streblidae) en una comunidad de murciélagos en la cueva de San Francisco, Chiapas. Los datos se obtuvieron entre febrero y agosto de 2013 mediante captura y revisión de 569 individuos de 12 especies de murciélagos. Se identificaron 3 especies de moscas: Trichobius joblingi, Metelasmus pseudopterus y Megistopoda aranea; T. joblingi se presentó en 6 especies de murciélagos mostrando los mayores valores de prevalencia y abundancia. En este trabajo se registra por primera vez en México la presencia simultánea de estas 3 especies como parásitos en Artibeus jamaicensis, además, la presencia de T. joblingi es un nuevo registro para A. jamaicensis y Pteronotus parnellii en Chiapas. La mayor prevalencia y abundancia de T. joblingi se presentó en hembras de Desmodus rotundus y en juveniles de A. jamaicensis, aunque no se encontró diferencia en la intensidad de infección, lo que demuestra que las características biológicas, como el sexo y la edad de los hospederos, pueden influir en la relación ectoparásito-hospedero. Se sugiere que la prevalencia, abundancia e intensidad de infección de ectoparásitos también podrían relacionarse con patrones de conducta social y hábitos de refugio.

Resumen en inglés

Batflies (Diptera: Streblidae) were studied in a community of bats in the cave of San Francisco, Chiapas. Data were collected between February and August 2013 through capture and review of 569 individuals of 12 species of bats. Three bat flies species were identified: Trichobius joblingi, Metelasmus pseudopterus and Megistopoda aranea; T. joblingi occurred in 6 species of bats showing the highest values of prevalence and abundance. In this work, the co-occurrence of these 3 species in Artibeus jamaicensis reported for the first time in Mexico, and the presence of T. joblingi is a new record for A. jamaicensis and Pteronotus parnellii in Chiapas. The higher prevalence and abundance of T. joblingi occurred in females of Desmodus rotundus and juveniles of A. jamaicensis, although no differences in the intensity of infection were found, indicating that biological characteristics such as sex and age of the host may influence ectoparasite-host relationship. It is suggested that the prevalence, abundance and intensity of infection of external parasites may also be related to social behavior patterns and roosting habits.

Resumen en inglés

Existing and emerging infectious diseases are among the most pressing global threats to biodiversity, food safety and human health. The complex interplay between host, pathogen and environment creates a challenge for conserving species, communities and ecosystem functions, while mediating the many known ecological and socio-economic negative effects of disease. Despite the clear ecological and evolutionary contexts of host–pathogen dynamics, approaches to managing wildlife disease remain predominantly reactionary, focusing on surveillance and some attempts at eradication. A few exceptional studies have heeded recent calls for better integration of ecological concepts in the study and management of wildlife disease; however, evolutionary concepts remain underused. Applied evolution consists of four principles: evolutionary history, genetic and phenotypic variation, selection and eco-evolutionary dynamics. In this article, we first update a classical framework for understanding wildlife disease to integrate better these principles. Within this framework, we explore the evolutionary implications of environment–disease interactions. Subsequently, we synthesize areas where applied evolution can be employed in wildlife disease management. Finally, we discuss some future directions and challenges. Here, we underscore that despite some evolutionary principles currently playing an important role in our understanding of disease in wild animals, considerable opportunities remain for fostering the practice of evolutionarily enlightened wildlife disease management.

Resumen en español

El presente estudio analizó la prevalencia, abundancia e intensidad de infección de macro-ectoparásitos en una comunidad de murciélagos cavernícolas en la cueva de San Francisco, en el municipio de La Trinitaria, Chiapas. Los datos se obtuvieron, entre febrero y agosto de 2013 mediante la captura y revisión de 569 murciélagos, correspondientes a 12 especies, en los cuales se colectaron cuatro morfoespecies de la familia Mesostigmata y tres especies de la familia Streblidae (Trichobius joblingi, Metelasmus pseudopterus y Megistopoda aranae). De las 12 especies de murciélagos capturados, diez presentaron macro-ectoparásitos. Artibeus jamaicensis, fue el hospedero que presentó mayor diversidad de macro-ectoparásitos (H’=0.9221). Trichobius joblingi fue el macro-ectoparásito con mayor prevalencia, abundancia e intensidad de infección dentro de la comunidad de murciélagos. En relación a la variación entre la prevalencia, abundancia e intensidad de infección con el sexo y clase de edad de cada especie de hospedero se encontró que, en Desmodus rotundus la prevalencia (P = 0.034) y la abundancia (P = 0.009) de T. joblingi fue mayor en hembras que en machos. Por otra parte, el hospedero A. jamaicensis mostró mayor prevalencia (P = 0.001) y abundancia (P = 0.038) de T. joblingi en juveniles.

La intensidad de infección dentro de la comunidad de murciélagos capturados no mostró diferencia entre sexo y clase de edad de cada especie de hospedero. Se concluye que para la comunidad de murciélagos analizados, la prevalencia, abundancia e intensidad de infección de macro-ectoparásitos se encuentran mayormente ligadas a la fidelidad del refugio, mientras que para A. jamaicensis y D. rotundus el sexo y la edad afecta la prevalencia y abundancia de estréblidos. Los estudios sobre ectoparásitos asociados a murciélagos son escasos, siendo la mayoría de ellos taxonómicos. Este estudio es uno de los pocos en México, en donde se ha enfocado en los atributos intrínsecos de un número considerable de individuos y especies de hospederos.

Resumen en inglés

This book is a generic revision of the entire caligid family, which has not been reviewed and revised since its establishment in 1834 by Burmeister. It includes detailed descriptions of all genera within the family along with a discussion on the taxonomic status of the genera previously belonging to the Euryphoridae and compiles an extensive array of information and literature regarding "sea lice" into one book. The external morphology, functional morphology, life history, and host-parasite relationships of the Caligidae are presented. A key to the genera of the Caligidae is provided. Because this family has become increasingly important due to their deleterious effects on fishes, especially cultured or farmed fishes throughout the world, aquaculturists have become very concerned about these “sea lice”.
