Ecotoxicological Effect of Sublethal Exposure to Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles on Freshwater Snail Biomphalaria alexandrina
TLDR
This study highlights the potential ecological implications of ZnONP release in aquatic environments and may serve to encourage regulatory agencies in Egypt to more carefully monitor and regulate the industrial use and disposal of ZNONPs.
Morphology and small subunit ribosomal DNA sequence of Henneguya suprabranchiae (Myxozoa), a parasite of the catfish Clarias gariepinus (Clariidae) from the River Nile, Egypt
TLDR
Based on the structure and measurements of fresh spores by light microscopy, this parasite was identified as H. suprabranchiae, and the developmental stages characterizing sporogenesis, capsulogenisis, and valvogenesis of the present parasite were ultrastructurally studied.
Hysterothylacium aduncum (Nematoda, Anisakidae) with a new host record from the common sole Solea solea (Soleidae) and its role as a biological indicator of pollution
TLDR
It was shown that this parasitic nematode is able to accumulate larger concentrations of heavy metals such as Fe, Cu, Cd, and Ni within its tissues than of its host fish and thus it can be used as a useful bio-indicator of water pollution.
Morphological and phylogenetic analysis of Echinocephalus carpiae n. sp. (Nematoda: Gnathostomatidae) infecting the common carp Cyprinus carpio inhabiting Burullus Lake—a new host record in Egypt
TLDR
A new species of the genus Echinocephalus that was isolated from the intestine of the common carp Cyprinus carpio inhabiting Burullus Lake, Kafr el-Sheikh Governorate, Egypt is described, especially characterized by short body length, cephalic bulb with few (six to eight) multiple rows of spines, clear annulated cuticle, and new genetic sequences, which identify the paraphyly of Gnathostomatinae.
First molecular characterization and morphological aspects of Sarcocystis fusiformis infecting water buffalo Bubalus bubalis in Egypt
TLDR
The present study is the first collective ultrastructural and molecular study that confirmed the taxonomy of sarcocysts isolated from water buffaloes in Egypt as Sarcocystis fusiformis.
Morphological and molecular characterization of Lecithochirium grandiporum (Digenea: Hemiuridae) infecting the European eel Anguilla anguilla as a new host record in Egypt
TLDR
The morphological and molecular characterization of Lecithochirium grandiporum, a digenetic trematode infecting the European eel Anguilla anguilla (Family (F): Anguillidae), were described for the first time from Burullus Lake, Kafr El-Sheikh Governorate, Egypt, indicated that the present species is recorded as L.grandiporum as a parasite with new host and locality records in Egypt.
Light microscopy and surface topography of Urotrema scabridum and Renschetrema indicum (Digenea) from Rhinopoma hardwickii (Chiroptera): first report in Egypt.
TLDR
The recovered helminthes were studied morphologically and morphometrically by light microscopy and the surface topography of the two species was elucidated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
The Impact of Three Herbicides on Biological and Histological Aspects of Biomphalaria alexandrina, Intermediate Host of Schistosoma mansoni
TLDR
The present study investigated the different effects of three commercial herbicidical compounds, Butralin (as Amex 48% EC), glyphosate isopropylammonium and Pendimethalin (Stomp 50% EC) on B. alexandrina, finding them to have molluscicidal and antihelminth properties.
