Assortative pairing in Gammarus insensibilis (Amphipoda) infected by a trematode parasite
We have investigated the influence of Microphallus papillorobustus (Trematoda) on the reproductive biology and mating patterns of its intermediate host Gammarus insensibilis (Amphipoda). InfectedExpand

HYBRID ZONES AND HOST‐PARASITE RELATIONSHIPS: EFFECT ON THE EVOLUTION OF PARASITIC SPECIFICITY
In southern France, Diplozoon gracile (Monogenea, Polyopisthocotylea), parasitizes four sympatric cyprinids. One of these host species, Barbus meridionalis, naturally hybridizes with another speciesExpand

Role of parathyroid hormone-related protein in the regulation of stretch-induced renal vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation.
In vivo, vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) are continuously exposed to mechanical cyclic stretch as a result of the pulsatile blood flow from the cardiac contractile cycle. Stretch is altered inExpand
