Molecular markers for gyrodactylids (Gyrodactylidae: Monogenea) from five fish families (Teleostei).
Phylogenetic relationships of the Dactylogyridae Bychowsky, 1933 (Monogenea: Dactylogyridea): the need for the systematic revision of the Ancyrocephalinae Bychowsky, 1937
Classification of the Dactylogyridae needs to be revised as the non-monophyly of the group of species recently considered as members of Ancyrocephalinae, previously suggested by Kritsky & Boeger (1989) using the morphological characters is indicated.
Investigating patterns may reveal processes: evolutionary ecology of ectoparasitic monogeneans.
Genetic characterization of six species of diplozoids (Monogenea; Diplozoidae)
The second internal transcribed spacer (ITS2) of the ribosomal RNA gene array of 6 species of diplozoids, E. nipponicum was the most genetically distinct species, whereas P. bliccae and P. sapae were the species most closely related.

Characteristics of the excretory system of Gyrodactylus do not seem to be conservative enough to reveal subgenera within GyrodACTylus and it is suggested abandoning existing sub genera as indicators of phylogeny.
IDENTIFICATION OF EUROPEAN DIPLOZOIDS (MONOGENEA, DIPLOZOINAE) BY RESTRICTION DIGESTION OF THE RIBOSOMAL RNA INTERNAL TRANSCRIBED SPACER
Sequence comparisons and ITS2 restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) pattern of 8 European diplozoid species aimed to resolve their identification and amend the previous studies.

A highly sensitive real-time PCR assay targeting a region of the SAV nsP1 gene was used to screen wild marine fish species for the presence of SAV in an attempt to identify a substantial reservoir of infection exists in the marine environment.

A survey was undertaken to determine the potential distribution of viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus (VHSV) in marine cage-based salmonid farms in Scotland, and a rapid, accurate and sensitive quantitative real-time RT-PCR assay was developed, shown to be more sensitive than the conventional VHSV RT- PCR.
Seasonal occurrence and metrical variability of Gyrodactylus rhodei Žitňan 1964 (Monogenea, Gyrodactylidae)
The seasonal dynamics of Gyrodactylus rhodei, a monogenean ectoparasite of bitterling (Rhodeus sericeus), was studied from June 2000 to May 2001 in the Kyjovka River, Czech Republic. A negative…
A mortality event in wrasse species (Labridae) associated with the presence of viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus.
This study reports for the first time the detection of VHSV within multiple wrasse species and highlights the need for a comprehensive risk-based approach to the use of wrasse and other finfish species as biological controls within the aquaculture industry.
