The biogeography of host-parasite interactions

Morand S. (ed.), Krasnov B.R. (ed.). 2010. Oxford : Oxford University Press, 287 p.. (Oxford Biology).

Biogeography has renewed its concepts and methods following important recent advances in phylogenetics, macroecology, and geographic information systems. In parallel, the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite interactions has attracted the interests of numerous studies dealing with life-history traits evolution, community ecology, and evolutionary epidemiology. This book is the first to integrate these two fields, using examples from a variety of host-parasite associations in various regions, and across both ecological and evolutionary timescales. Besides a strong theoretical component, there is a bias towards applications, specifically in the fields of historical biogeography, palaeontology, phylogeography, landscape epidemiology, invasion biology, conservation biology, human evolution, and health ecology. A particular emphasis concerns emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases linked to global changes. Contents: Preface (Robert E. Ricklefs). Introduction (Serge Morand, Boris R. Krasnov). Part I. Historical biogeography. 1. Beyond vicariance: integrating taxon pulses, ecological fitting and oscillation in evolution and historical biogeography (Eric P. Hoberg, Daniel R. Brooks). 2. Palaeogeography of parasites (Katharina Dittmar). 3. Phylogeography and historical biogeography of obligate specific mutualisms (Nadir Alvarez, Doyle McKey, Finn Kjellberg, Martine Hossaert-McKey). 4. Biogeography, humans and their parasites (Pascale Perrin, Vincent Herbreteau, Jean-Pierre Hugot, Serge Morand). 5. The use of co-phylogeographic patterns to predict the nature of host-parasite interactions, and vice versa (Caroline Nieberding, Emmanuelle Jousselin, Yves Desdevises). Part II. Ecological biogeography and macroecology. 6. Marine parasite diversity and environmental gradients (Klaus Rohde). 7. Parasite diversity and latitudinal gradients in terrestrial mammals (Frederic Bordes, Serge Morand, Boris R. Krasnov, Robert Poulin). 8. Ecological properties of a parasite: species-specific stability and geographical variation (Boris R. Krasnov, Robert Poulin). 9. Similarity and variability in parasite assemblages across geographical space (Robert Poulin, Boris R. Krasnov). 10. Gap analysis and the geographical variation in our knowledge of parasites (Mariah Hopkins, Charles L. Nunn). Part III. Geography of interactive populations. 11. In the hosts' footsteps? Ecological niche modeling and its utility in predicting parasite distributions (Eric Walteri, Suzan L. Perkins). 12. The geography of defence (Serge Morand, Frederic Bordes, Benoit Pisanu, Joelle Gouy de Bellocq, Boris R. Krasnov). 13. Evolutionary landscape epidemiology (Julie Deter, Nathalie Charbonnel, Jean-Francois Cosson). Part IV. Invasion, insularity, and interactions. 14. The geography of host and parasite invasions (Kevin D. Lafferty, Mark E. Torchin, Armand M. Kuris). 15. Immune defence and invasion (Anders P. Moller, Laszlo Z. Garamszegi). 16. Infection, immunity, and island adaptation in birds (Kevin D. Matson, Jon S. Beadell). Part V. Applied biogeography. 17. The geography and ecology of pathogen emergence (Jan Slingenbergh, Lenny Hogerwerf, Stephane de la Rocque). 18. When geography of health meets health ecology (Vincent Herbreteau). Conclusion and perspectives (Serge Morand, Boris R. Krasnov). Index. (Adapted from the publisher's summary)
