Gill histopathology of cultured European sea bass, Dicentrarchus labrax (L.), infected with Diplectanum aequans (Wagener 1857) Diesing 1958 (Diplectanidae: Monogenea)
The mortality of juvenile European sea bass, Dicentrarchus labrax (L.), in the spring of the last 5 years in the northern coast of the Adriatic Sea has been attributed to heavy infections of the gillExpand

Cellular alterations in different organs of European sea bass Dicentrarchus labrax (L.) exposed to cadmium.
Specimens of farmed European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax L., 1758) were exposed to different cadmium (Cd) concentrations (4.47, 5.63, 7.08 and 8.91 mg l(-1)) for 24 and 48 h. The effects of Cd onExpand

Species associations among larval helminths in an amphipod intermediate host.
Larval helminths that share the same intermediate host may or may not also share the same definitive hosts. If one or more of these helminth species can manipulate the phenotype of the intermediateExpand

Costs of intraspecific and interspecific host sharing in acanthocephalan cystacanths.
Larval helminths often share individual intermediate hosts with other larval worms of the same or different species. In the case of immature acanthocephalans capable of altering the phenotype ofExpand

A parasite spatially structures its host population
Acanthocephalan parasites are capable of altering the behavior of their intermediate amphipod hosts by inducing hyperactivity and increasing downstream drift. We used a laboratory and field study toExpand

Inflammatory response to Dentitruncus truttae (Acanthocephala) in the intestine of brown trout.
Brown trout, Salmo trutta L., were infected with the acanthocephalan Dentitruncus truttae with the most affected areas being the anterior (near the pyloric caeca) and middle intestine. The parasiteExpand

Alteration of rodlet cells in chub caused by the herbicide Stam® M-4 (Propanil)
Handling stress and exposure to the herbicide Stam M-4 (Propanil) were associated with an exponential depletion of the rodlet cells (RC) in the bulbus arteriosus of chub Leuciscus cephalus.Expand
