Ecosystem energetic implications of parasite and free-living biomass in three estuaries
It is shown that parasites have substantial biomass in these ecosystems and that the annual production of free-swimming trematode transmission stages was greater than the combined biomass of all quantified parasites and was also greater than bird biomass.
Gender Differences and Performance in Science
As leaders in science, engineering, and education, the authors are concerned by the suggestion that the status quo for women in science and engineering may be natural, inevitable, and unrelated to social factors.

The Dismantling of Calliobothrium (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea) With Erection of Symcallio n. gen. and Description of Two New Species
This paper aims to resolve the dual composition of the triakid shark–hosted tetraphyllidean genus Calliobothrium—an issue that has been recognized for over a decade, and confirmed the reciprocal monophyly of the 2 clades, supporting establishment of a new genus.
Long-term changes in liana loads and tree dynamics in a Malaysian forest.
Lianas have a huge impact on trees in this forest and were a stable component of the forest between 2002 and 2014 and the emergent habit and associated ability to avoid lianas might contribute to the success of the Dipterocarpaceae.
Two New Species of Echinobothrium (Cestoda: Diphyllidea) from Batoids off South Africa
Examination of the bycatch from a hake survey off the coast of South Africa in 2010 yielded new diphyllidean tapeworms from 2 species of batoids not previously examined for this cestode order, supporting the notion that the small percentage of species in these genera that are currently known to host dip Hyllideans, and likely also their respective families Rajidae and Rhinobatidae, are likely a result of a lack of sampling.
New African Species of Echinobothrium (Cestoda: Diphyllidea) and Implications for the Identities of their Skate Hosts
Two new species of diphyllidean cestodes of the genus Echinobothrium, each hosted by a different skate species in the Raja miraletus complex, are described, providing support for the interpretation that what is currently recognized as Rajamiraletus actually consists of a complex of geographically restricted species, rather than a polymorphic species of multiple parapatric or allopatrically distributed populations.
Calliobothrium schneiderae n. sp. (Cestoda: Tetraphyllidea) from the Spotted Estuary Smooth-Hound Shark, Mustelus lenticulatus, from New Zealand
Examination of a specimen Alexander identified as Calliobothrium verticillatum suggests that this identification may be in error, and that this large lacinate specimen of CalliOBothrium also represents a new species.
Echinobothrium joshuai n. sp. (Cestoda: Diphyllidea) from the Roughnose Legskate, Cruriraja hulleyi (Rajiformes: Rajidae), off South Africa
A new species of diphyllidean cestode is described from Cruriraja hulleyi, a recently described species of skate collected off the coast of South Africa, which differs from all 39 of its valid congeners in its possession of “B” hooks.

Examination of a small portion of the viscera of an oarfish recovered from Santa Catalina Island, southern California, revealed numerous tetraphyllidean tapeworm plerocercoids, Clistobothrium cf.
