Introduction to the System PARHOST1 Analytical information system (AIS) on the world flea fauna PARHOST1 has been created in the laboratory of parasitology of the Zoological Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences (ZI RAS) for the past four years beginning from 1995.
AIS PARHOST1 permits making a query about statistics of different types of parasite-host relations of taxa of fleas and their hosts. An example of a summarizing table of relations of flea species of different families with species of the Leporidae family is given.
The PARHOST1 system permits analysing large amounts of data, in particular distribution patterns of the world’s flea fauna represented by 2000 species. The PARHOST1 system permits analysing distribution patterns and parasite-host relations of separate flea taxa and their interaction in various aspects.
