Abstract: On the wings, bodies, and heads of most birds there are lice. These lice spend their whole lives on their host, with the exception of the few lice that get the opportunity to transfer from one host to another, typically when the hosts come into physical contact with each other. In shorebirds (Charadriiformes), such opportunities are unevenly distributed over the year. The hosts are spread out over vast areas in their Arctic breeding grounds during the Arctic summer, but form dense, multispec... more
