    Claire Loiseau
    Department of Biology, San Francisco State University, 1600 Holloway Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94132, USA
    Mol Ecol 21:431-41. 2012
    ..Thus, with environmental changes, we anticipate a change in the distribution of both specialist and generalist parasites with potential impacts on bird communities...

    Center for Tropical Research, Institute of the Environment, University of California Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California 900 1606, USA
    J Parasitol 96:21-9. 2010
    ..Environmental conditions here can either favor or reduce parasite infection. We discuss the implications of these discrepancies for conservation and ecological studies of infectious diseases in natural populations...

    Anthony Chasar
    Department of Biology, San Francisco State University, San Francisco, CA 94132, USA
    Mol Ecol 18:4121-33. 2009
    ..Our work demonstrates that anthropogenic habitat change can affect host-parasite systems and result in opposing trends in prevalence of haemosporidian parasites in wild bird populations...

    J Parasitol 99:270-6. 2013
    ..A monitoring program for both birds and vectors should be implemented to establish the prevalence of Plasmodium sp. and as a necessary conservation measure for critically endangered birds on the island...
  5. pmc Coquillettidia (Culicidae, Diptera) mosquitoes are natural vectors of avian malaria in Africa
    Kevin Y Njabo
    Center for Tropical Research, UCLA Institute of the Environment, Los Angeles, California, USA
    Malar J 8:193. 2009
    ..The mosquito vectors of Plasmodium spp. have largely been overlooked in studies of ecology and evolution of avian malaria and other vertebrates in wildlife...

    Claire Loiseau
    Department of Biology, San Francisco State University, San Francisco, California 94132, USA
    Sci Rep 3:1126. 2013

    Claire Loiseau
    Department of Biology, San Francisco State University, San Francisco, California, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 7:e44729. 2012
    ..Based on our empirical data, we make the first projections of the habitat suitability for Plasmodium under a future-warming scenario in Alaska. These findings raise new concerns about the spread of malaria to naïve host populations...

    J Vector Ecol 36:213-20. 2011
    ..Our results confirm a potential risk for the spread of avian malaria and underscore the need to monitor both the mosquito and avian populations as a necessary conservation measure to protect endangered bird species on Socorro Island...
