Biogeography of helminth parasites of freshwater fishes in Mexico: the search for patterns and processes
Aim  To uncover and describe patterns of biogeography of helminth parasites in freshwater fishes of Mexico, and to understand processes that determine them. Three predictions about host-specificity,Expand
Update on the Distribution of the Invasive Asian Fish Tapeworm, Bothriocephalus acheilognathi, in the U.S. and Canada
Abstract The documented range of the invasive and potentially pathogenic Asian fish tapeworm, Bothriocephalus acheilognathi Yamaguti, 1934 in the United States and Canada is updated based onExpand
Richness and diversity of helminth communities in tropical freshwater fishes: Empirical evidence
Abstract Aim Published information on the richness and diversity of helminth parasite communities in tropical freshwater fishes is reviewed in response to expectations of species-rich parasiteExpand
Diphyllobothriasis: update on human cases, foci, patterns and sources of human infections and future considerations.
Diphylobothriasis is a well documented disease of humans. On a world scale new infections are reported regularly, especially from Russia and parts of Japan. Globally, new species have been discoveredExpand

Helminth communities of native and introduced fishes in Lake Pátzcuaro, Michoacán, México
In Lake Patzcuaro in the Mesa Central of Mexico, a total of 19 species of helminths was found in 598 fishes and comprised five digeneans, two monogeneans, four cestodes, one acanthocephalan and sevenExpand
The historical biogeography of sturgeons (Osteichthyes: Acipenseridae): a synthesis of phylogenetics, palaeontology and palaeogeography
. The historical biogeography of sturgeons is explored using information from palaeogeography, palaeontology and phylogenetic interrelationships. The integration of information from these diverseExpand
Parasite Inventories and DNA-based Taxonomy: Lessons from Helminths of Freshwater Fishes in a Megadiverse Country
Abstract Freshwater fish helminth parasites are undoubtedly the most well-known group among vertebrate parasites in Mexico; these parasites include 37 adult and 43 larval (metacercariae) species ofExpand
Trematode diversity in freshwater fishes of the Globe II: ‘New World’
We provide a summary overview of the diversity of trematode parasites in freshwater fishes of the ‘New World’, i.e. the Americas, with emphasis on adult forms. The trematode fauna of three regions,Expand
Adult Endohelminth Parasites of Ictalurid Fishes (Osteichthyes: Ictaluridae) in Mexico: Empirical Evidence for Biogeographical Patterns
Abstract The helminth fauna of Mexican ictalurids was investigated through original surveys and published literature in order to evaluate the biogeography of host-parasite associations of a primarilyExpand
