- In some plants, notably members of Orchidaceae and Asclepiadoideae , the pollen remains in masses called pollinia , which are adapted to attach to particular pollinating agents such as birds or insects. (wikipedia.org)

- Even more surprising was the number of novel malaria parasite lineages scientists discovered in Malawian birds. (ansp.org)
- The diversity of parasites found here indicate that this region of southeast Africa is a prime area to study the mechanisms of host-parasite interactions-and, Weckstein said, knowing more about the diversity of haemosporidian parasites infecting birds here helps complete the picture across Africa.

- There are two basic modes of parasite transmission by insects, mechanical and biological. (coursehero.com)
- In biological transmission the vector plays an essential role in the life cycle of the parasite. (coursehero.com)
- The parasite either undergoes multiplication or life stage development in the vector. (coursehero.com)
- In essence the vector is really another host for the parasite. (coursehero.com)
- In most cases the vector directly injects the parasite into the skin or blood stream of the host. (coursehero.com)
- In a contaminated house, the infection can spread easily bird to bird, cage to cage, and by the standing water in drinking cups. (hyline.com)
- A bite from an infected insect can lead to infection. (rentokil.com)
