Ecosystem energetic implications of parasite and free-living biomass in three estuaries
Parasites can have strong impacts but are thought to contribute little biomass to ecosystems. We quantified the biomass of free-living and parasitic species in three estuaries on the Pacific coast ofExpand

Melanin-based skin spots reflect stress responsiveness in salmonid fish
Within animal populations, genetic, epigenetic and environmental factors interact to shape individual neuroendocrine and behavioural profiles, conferring variable vulnerability to stress and disease.Expand

Comparing mechanisms of host manipulation across host and parasite taxa
Summary Parasites affect host behavior in several ways. They can alter activity, microhabitats or both. For trophically transmitted parasites (the focus of our study), decreased activity might impairExpand

Food webs and parasites in a salt marsh ecosystem.
Our mothers teach us to grill our meats " well done " and chew them thoroughly. Even if mom did not know why she insisted, both are good precautions against parasites. Parasites may be in our food,Expand

Parasite manipulation of brain monoamines in California killifish (Fundulus parvipinnis) by the trematode Euhaplorchis californiensis
California killifish (Fundulus parvipinnis) infected with the brain-encysting trematode Euhaplorchis californiensis display conspicuous swimming behaviours rendering them more susceptible toExpand

Molecular analyses reveal high species diversity of trematodes in a sub-Arctic lake.
To identify trematode diversity and life-cycles in the sub-Arctic Lake Takvatn, Norway, we characterised 120 trematode isolates from mollusc first intermediate hosts, metacercariae from secondExpand

Brain-encysting trematodes and altered monoamine activity in naturally infected killifish Fundulus parvipinnis.
This paper presents novel evidence to address mechanisms by which trematode parasites effect behavioural changes in naturally infected fish hosts. California killifish Fundulus parvipinnis infectedExpand

Reef Fishes Have Higher Parasite Richness at Unfished Palmyra Atoll Compared to Fished Kiritimati Island
We compared parasite communities at two coral atolls in the Line Islands chain of the central Pacific (Kiritimati Island and Palmyra Atoll). Palmyra Atoll is relatively pristine while KiritimatiExpand

Ecology of the Brain Trematode Euhaplorchis californiensis and Its Host, the California Killifish (Fundulus parvipinnis)
Abstract We describe the distribution and abundance of the brain-encysting trematode Euhaplorchis californiensis and its second intermediate host, the California killifish (Fundulus parvipinnis), inExpand
