MOLECULAR CHARACTERIZATION OF LARVAL ANISAKID NEMATODES FROM MARINE FISHES OF MADEIRA BY A PCR-BASED APPROACH, WITH EVIDENCE FOR A NEW SPECIES
TLDR
One-hundred and fifteen anisakid larvae from 3 different fish hosts, Aphanopus carbo, Scomber japonicus, and Trachurus picturatus, caught in Madeiran waters, were identified by PCR-RFLP and an apparently undescribed taxon seems to be more similar to A. ziphidarum than to other species of the genus.

Genetic markers in the study of Anisakis typica (Diesing, 1860): larval identification and genetic relationships with other species of Anisakis Dujardin, 1845 (Nematoda: Anisakidae)
TLDR
The present findings represent the first established records of intermediate/paratenic hosts of Anisakis typica and extend its range to Somali waters of the Indian Ocean and to the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Expand
The occurrence and infection dynamics of Anisakis larvae in the black-scabbard fish, Aphanopus carbo, chub mackerel, Scomber japonicus, and oceanic horse mackerel, Trachurus picturatus from Madeira,
Abstract Larval stages of Anisakis spp. (Nematoda: Anisakidae) were found encapsulated or free in the viscera and abdominal cavity of the black-scabbard fish, Aphanopus carbo, chub mackerel, ScomberExpand
Helminth Component Community of the Loggerhead Sea Turtle, Caretta caretta, From Madeira Archipelago, Portugal
TLDR
The helminth-component community of healthy, free-ranging juvenile loggerhead sea turtles captured in the waters around Madeira Island, Portugal is described, thereby filling a fundamental gap with regard to features of the parasite fauna in this species. Expand
Helminth parasites of the Atlantic chub mackerel, Scomber colias Gmelin, 1789 from Canary Islands, Central North Atlantic, with comments on their relations with other Atlantic regions
TLDR
The comparison of present results with previous reports on the occurrence of parasites in this fish host, might suggest that there is more than one population unit of Atlantic chub mackerel in the Eastern Atlantic. Expand
Morphological evaluation of common bean diversity on the Island of Madeira
TLDR
This work represents the first morphological characterization and analysis of diversity of bean germplasm from the Archipelago of Madeira, where the traditional agricultural practices are still keeping this Portuguese region free from improved bean varieties. Expand
Endoparasites of Trachurus picturatus (Pisces: Carangidae) from the Madeira and Canary Islands: Selecting parasites for use as tags
TLDR
Although significant differences in prevalence of two parasites were found between the two regions investigated, G. cruciata was considered useful as a biological tag for the identification of populations of T. picturatus, an expansion of the temporal and spatial sampling strategy is recommended.

Cystacanths of Bolbosoma vasculosum in the black scabbard fish Aphanopus carbo, oceanic horse mackerel Trachurus picturatus and common dolphin Delphinus delphis from Madeira, Portugal
Abstract Cystacanths of the acanthocephalan, Bolbosoma vasculosum Rudolphi 1819, were found to be encapsulated in the connective tissues of the viscera of the black scabbard fish, Aphanopus carbo andExpand
Helminth parasites of the oceanic horse mackerel Trachurus picturatus Bowdich 1825 (Pisces: Carangidae) from Madeira Island, Atlantic Ocean, Portugal.
TLDR
The depauperate helminth fauna of the oceanic horse mackerel at Madeira compared to other geographical regions of the north-eastern Atlantic, namely the Azores banks and the West African coast, may be attributed to the paucity of nutrients off oceanic islands and to a low density of the fish population.
