- The energetic grooming costs imposed by a parasitic mite (Spinturnix myoti) upon its bat host (Myotis myotis)M S Giorgi
Institut d Ecologie, Laboratoire de Zoologie et Ecologie Animale, Batiment de Biologie, Universite de Lausanne, CH 1015 Lausanne, Switzerland
Proc Biol Sci 268:2071-5. 2001..The short-term energetic constraints induced by anti-parasite grooming are probably associated with long-term detrimental effects such as a decrease in survival and overall reproductive value...
- Causal mechanisms underlying host specificity in bat ectoparasitesMaud S Giorgi
Department of Ecology and Evolution, University of Lausanne, Biology Building, 1015 Lausanne, Switzerland
Oecologia 138:648-54. 2004..In contrast, S. andegavinus showed no host choice, although its fitness was higher on its native host M. daubentoni. The causal mechanisms mediating host specificity can apparently differ within closely related host-parasite systems...

Department of Ecology and Evolution, University of Lausanne, CH 1015 Lausanne, Switzerland
Mol Ecol 14:661-70. 2005..Altogether, our results suggest a sexually antagonistic cyto-nuclear selection on thermogenesis...
