Fish pathogens near the Arctic Circle: molecular, morphological and ecological evidence for unexpected diversity of Diplostomum (Digenea: Diplostomidae) in Iceland.
Molecular diversity of Trichobilharzia franki in two intermediate hosts (Radix auricularia and Radix peregra): a complex of species.
New cryptic species of the ‘revolutum’ group of Echinostoma (Digenea: Echinostomatidae) revealed by molecular and morphological data
The findings highlight the need for further analyses of patterns of interspecific variation based on molecular and morphological evidence to enhance the re-evaluation of the species and advance the understanding of the relationships within the ‘revolutum’ group of Echinostoma.
Allobilharzia visceralis gen. nov., sp. nov. (Schistosomatidae-Trematoda) from Cygnus cygnus (L.) (Anatidae).
Comparative hepatic microsomal biotransformation of selected PBDEs, including decabromodiphenyl ether, and decabromodiphenyl ethane flame retardants in Arctic marine‐feeding mammals
Findings suggested possible underestimation of the ecosystem burden of total‐BDE209, as well as its transformation products, and a need for research to identify and characterize the persistence and toxicity of major BDE209 metabolites.
Schistosome cercariae as the causative agent of swimmer's itch in Iceland.
An examination of Lymnaea peregra snails from this pond and from the adjacent Lake Tjornin resulted in detection of previously undescribed schistosome cercariae, the first report of schistsomes in Iceland and also the most northern occurrence of these parasites in Europe.
A review on swimmer's itch and the occurrence of bird schistosomes in Iceland
The data obtained by morphological examination of eggs and recent DNA sequencing results indicate that at least eight species of bird schistosomes occur in Iceland.
Bird schistosome diversity in Iceland: molecular evidence
High diversity of bird schistosomes in Iceland is probably linked with migratory flyways of birds, as several bird species from Iceland overwinter in western Europe as well as in North America.

Thyroid glands of the porpoises showed similar lesions, but to a lesser degree, than those observed in the North Sea seals, whileColloid depletion and fibrosis were found in the thyroid glands of harbor seals which died during the epizootic, but not in animals from Iceland.

Basic information on detection of the infectious agents in the field and the clinical course of the disease, including other pathologies which may develop after infection by cercariae, and diagnosis of the Disease are covered.
