Molecular prospecting for European Diplostomum (Digenea: Diplostomidae) reveals cryptic diversity.
TLDR
Two of the species and 10 of the lineages (arguably species) delineated in the datasets studied originate from central and northern Europe thus indicating a substantial unrecognized genetic diversity inferred from molecular evidence on Diplostomum spp.
Effects of fishing on parasitism in a sparid fish: contrasts between two areas of the Western Mediterranean.
TLDR
The consistent differences in the richness, abundance and structure of parasite communities in B. boops from Santa Pola Bay and the Gulf of Oran may reflect the contrasting patterns of exploitation of the populations of this fish host at the two localities.
Not everything is everywhere: the distance decay of similarity in a marine host–parasite system
TLDR
The main factors that tend to homogenize the composition of parasite communities of bogue at higher regional scales are related to the dispersal of parasite colonizers across host populations, which the authors denote as horizontal neighbourhood colonization.
New molecular and morphological data for opecoelid digeneans in two Mediterranean sparid fishes with descriptions of Macvicaria gibsoni n. sp. and M. crassigula (Linton, 1910) (sensu stricto)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses based on ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 and partial 28S rDNA sequences provided evidence for the distinct species status of eight Mediterranean species of Macvicaria.
Larval trematode communities in Radix auricularia and Lymnaea stagnalis in a reservoir system of the Ruhr River
TLDR
Community of larval trematodes in the lake-adapted R. auricularia are better suited for monitoring the effect of environmental change on host-parasite associations in the reservoir system on the Ruhr River and other similar systems due to the important role of this host in trematode transmission in lakes.
Molecular and morphological evidence for three species of Diplostomum (Digenea: Diplostomidae), parasites of fishes and fish-eating birds in Spain
TLDR
Integrated morphological and molecular analyses demonstrated the presence of three species among the larval and adult isolates of Diplostomum spp.
Determining suitable fish to monitor plastic ingestion trends in the Mediterranean Sea.
TLDR
A methodology to assess how effective Mediterranean fish species, that are known to have ingested marine plastic, are as bioindicators is proposed, and the use of standardized indicator species will ensure coherence in the reporting of marine litter ingestion trends throughout the Mediterranean Sea.
A new species of Bathycreadium Kabata, 1961 (Digenea: Opecoelidae) from Phycisblennoides (Brünnich) (Gadiformes: Phycidae) in the western Mediterranean
TLDR
The new species is distinguished from B. flexicolle Kabata, 1961, B. elongata (Maillard, 1970) and B. nanaflexicolle Dronen, Rubec & Underwood, 1977 by the much smaller size of the body and most organs, the large ventral sucker and sucker width ratio and the shape of the gonads.
The systematics of the trematoda.
TLDR
This chapter focuses on insights into the classification of the Digenea that crystallised from the advanced understanding of both morphological and molecular data, and a framework that has led to robust estimates of phylogeny is outlined.
Composition and seasonal dynamics of the parasite communities of Scyliorhinus canicula (L., 1758) and Galeus melastomus Rafinesque, 1810 (Elasmobranchii) from the NW Mediterranean Sea in relation to
TLDR
The parasite communities of Scyliorhinus canicula and Galeus melastomus are studied for the first time in the Mediterranean and monogenean parasites were associated to high turbidity and temperature levels, which are known to enhance monogenan infection and reproductive success.
