Spatial and temporal predictability of the parasite community structure of a benthic marine fish along its distributional range.
The search for consistent patterns of organisation in parasite communities remains a central theme in parasite community ecology. However, to date, much evidence comes from studies withoutExpand

The decay of similarity over geographical distance in parasite communities of marine fishes
Aim  We evaluate, for the first time, the decay of similarity over distance in four species of marine fishes with different vagility: Trachurus murphyi (pelagic, highly vagile), Merluccius gayiExpand

Biogeographical patterns in endoparasite communities of a marine fish (Sebastes capensis Gmelin) with extended range in the Southern Hemisphere
Aim  The endoparasites of Sebastes capensis Gmelin are examined over most of its geographical range (coasts of Peru, Chile, Argentina and South Africa) to determine: (1) whether the endoparasiteExpand

The distribution of the ectoparasite fauna of Sebastes capensis from the southern hemisphere does not correspond with zoogeographical provinces of free-living marine animals
Aim We examined the ectoparasite fauna of Sebastes capensis over almost all its geographical distribution range (Chilean, Argentinean and South African coasts) to determine (1) whether theExpand

Molecular and morphological analyses reveal that the pathogen Benedenia seriolae (Monogenea: Capsalidae) is a complex species: Implications for yellowtail Seriola spp. aquaculture
Abstract Monogeneans such as Benedenia seriolae are important pathogens of Seriola spp. that are farmed around the world. In northern Chile, cultures of Seriola lalandi are being developed, and B.Expand
