Phylogenetic relationships of the Dactylogyridae Bychowsky, 1933 (Monogenea: Dactylogyridea): the need for the systematic revision of the Ancyrocephalinae Bychowsky, 1937
TLDR
Classification of the Dactylogyridae needs to be revised as the non-monophyly of the group of species recently considered as members of Ancyrocephalinae, previously suggested by Kritsky & Boeger (1989) using the morphological characters is indicated.
Associations between fish reproductive cycle and the dynamics of metazoan parasite infection
TLDR
The results suggest that stone loach females are more susceptible to parasite infection in periods of higher reproductive investment, probably induced by increasing fish hormone levels in the spring.
Morphology and coexistence of congeneric ectoparasite species: reinforcement of reproductive isolation?
TLDR
The results support the prediction that the function of niche segregation is to achieve reproductive isolation of related species in order to prevent hybridization and suggest small effects of interspecific competition for the evolution of morphological diversity of attachment organs.
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF CONGENERIC MONOGENEAN PARASITES (DACTYLOGYRUS): A CASE OF INTRAHOST SPECIATION
TLDR
The present study shows that the congeneric parasites speciating within one host tend to occupy niches within hosts differing at least in one niche parameter, which can be mainly explained by sympatric intrahost speciation events that seem to be correlated to strict host specificity.
Evolution of host specificity in monogeneans parasitizing African cichlid fish
TLDR
It is shown that parental care behavior of cichlids may play an important role linked to host specificity of Cichlidogyrus/Scutogyrus parasites, and the study did not support the specialization on predictable resources or ecological specialization hypotheses.
Are fish immune systems really affected by parasites? an immunoecological study of common carp (Cyprinus carpio)
TLDR
It seems that seasonal variability affects host immunity and physiology through energy allocation in a trade-off between life important functions, especially reproduction and fish condition.
Two new species of Cichlidogyrus (Monogenea: Dactylogyridae) parasitizing the gills of African cichlid fishes (Perciformes) from Senegal: morphometric and molecular characterization
TLDR
Two new species of Cichlidogyrus are described from the gills of three species of African cichlids collected from the Gambia River basin in the Niokolo-Koba National Park, Senegal on the basis of morphological differences in the male copulatory organs (MCOs) and apparent similarities in the SSU rDNA and ITS1 sequence data.
