Total mercury and mercury species in birds and fish in an aquatic ecosystem in the Czech Republic.
TLDR
Total mercury and mercury species (methylmercury-MeHg, inorganic mercury--Hg(2+)) were determined in the aquatic ecosystem Záhlinice (Czech Republic) and Statistically significant differences were found between contents of MeHg in liver tissues of young and adult cormorant populations. Expand
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. Expand
Serologic survey of birds for West Nile flavivirus in southern Moravia (Czech Republic).
TLDR
The results indicate that WNV activity in southern Moravia was limited during 2004-2006, and 13 of 391 wild birds had specific antibodies to WNV. Expand
Bird schistosomes of wildfowl in the Czech Republic and Poland.
TLDR
In 2005, dissects of wildfowl from the Czech Republic and Poland including representatives of Anseriformes, Gruiformes and Gaviiformes found schistosome infection, the first record of the parasite from natural final host since the species description. Expand
Spermiogenesis and Spermatozoon of the Tapeworm Ligula intestinalis (Diphyllobothriidea): Phylogenetic Implications
TLDR
Using transmission electron microscopy, spermiogenesis and the spermatozoon ultrastructural organization are described in Ligula intestinalis, a parasite of the great crested grebe Podiceps cristatus, to confirm the recent splitting of “Pseudophyllidea” into 2 new orders, i.e., Bothriocephalidea and Diphyllobothriidea.

Echinostoma 'revolutum' (Digenea: Echinostomatidae) species complex revisited: species delimitation based on novel molecular and morphological data gathered in Europe
TLDR
This study provides a comprehensive reference library for precisely identified isolates of the European species and highlights the importance of an integrative approach for species identification linking molecular, morphological and biological data. Expand
Molecular and comparative morphological analysis of central European parasitic flatworms of the superfamily Brachylaimoidea Allison, 1943 (Trematoda: Plagiorchiida) – CORRIGENDUM
TLDR
The authors apologise for errors that appear in the molecular phylogenetic analyses of the ND1 locus, which resulted in a slightly longer branch of the species in Fig. 2B and related supplementary material. Expand
The effect of urbanization on helminth communities in the Eurasian blackbird (Turdus merula L.) from the eastern part of the Czech Republic
TLDR
The clear qualitative and quantitative differences in the helminth community of T. merula obtained from two ecologically disparate localities show that urbanization leads to a significant reduction in theHelminth fauna of a bird which is highly adapted to synanthropic habitats, while still remaining common in its original forest habitat. Expand
On the systematic position of Collyricloides massanae Vaucher, 1969 (Platyhelminthes: Digenea) with notes on distribution of this trematode species
TLDR
It is accepted that C. massanae appears among the Pleurogenidae, forming a clade with Gyrabascus amphoraeformis (Modlinger, 1930) and Cortrema magnicaudata (Bykhovskaya-Pavlovskaya, 1950) and the commonly accepted placement of Collyricloides as the sister genus to C Mollyriclum within the Collyiclidae is rejected.
