Abstract

The development of molecular tools and phylogenetic methods have contributed to the explosion of taxonomic and phylogenetic investigations on parasites (both micro- and macroparasites, i.e. from viruses, bacteria, protists to arthropods and helminths), increasing our knowledge of considerable, and often cryptic, parasitic diversity. Concomitantly, the studies of host–parasite interactions and parasitism have influenced many scientific disciplines from biogeography to evolutionary ecology by using various comparative methods based on phylogenetic information to unravel shared evolutionary histories.
