New genus of opecoelid trematode from Pristipomoides aquilonaris (Perciformes: Lutjanidae) and its phylogenetic affinity within the family Opecoelidae.
TLDR
The new genus is morphologically similar to Neolebouria Gibson, 1976, but with a longer cirrus sac, entire testes, a rounded posterior margin with a cleft, and an apparent restriction to the deepwater snappers. Expand
Molecular characterization of two opecoelid trematodes from fishes in the Gulf of Mexico, with a description of a new species of Helicometra
TLDR
Results reveal that M. crassigula sensu stricto from the Gulf of Mexico is distinct from the two cryptic species of M. fasciata from the Mediterranean Sea, thus Helicometra manteri sp. Expand
New species of Plagioporus Stafford, 1904 (Digenea: Opecoelidae) from California, with an amendment of the genus and a phylogeny of freshwater plagioporines of the Holarctic
TLDR
This analysis represents the first phylogenetic study of the opecoelids that estimates the interrelationships of the Plagioporinae that includes a member of Plagiospermia and reveals plagioporines parasitising freshwater hosts form a monophyletic group. Expand
An additional genus and two additional species of Forticulcitinae (Digenea: Haploporidae).
TLDR
A Bayesian inference analysis of partial 28S rDNA sequences of the two New World species of Forticulcita, XihaFastigata and previously published haploporids places Xiha fastigata within theForticulcitinae and sister to ForticULcita. Expand
Two New Species of Saccocoelioides (Digenea: Haploporidae) with Phylogenetic Analysis of the Family, Including Species of Saccocoelioides from North, Middle, and South America
TLDR
Molecular data call into question some existing species identifications in Saccocoelioides and reveal that molecular tools combined with traditional taxonomy are required for accurately identifying species in the genus. Expand
A New Species of Podocotyloides (Digenea: Opecoelidae) from the Grey Conger Eel, Conger esculentus, in the Caribbean Sea
TLDR
Podocotyloides brevis, the first report of a member of this genus from the Caribbean Sea and from a host species collected as deep as 200 m, can be separated from the other 13 accepted species in the genus by having a shorter cirrus sac. Expand
The relative importance of terrestrial versus marine sediment sources to the Nueces-Corpus Christi Estuary, Texas: An isotopic approach
Determining sources of sediment to coastal systems is an important and complex problem that figures prominently in a myriad of geological, geomorphological, geochemical, and biological processes.Expand
Dioxin chronology and fluxes in sediments of the Houston Ship Channel, Texas: influences of non-steady-state sediment transport and total organic carbon.
TLDR
The results support the interpretation that the HSC is influenced by episodic sediment resuspension, erosion and lateral transport processes driven by tides, wind, shipping, and dredging, which can cause intermittently high accumulations of dioxins, and underscores the need for additional research on the roles of sedimentary processes in organic contaminant bioavailability.

Description of three species of Isorchis (Digenea: Atractotrematidae) from Australia
TLDR
Three species of Isorchis Durio and Manter, 1969 are described from Australian waters and a Bayesian inference analysis of partial 28S rDNA sequences of the three new species revealed the monophyly of the Atractotrematidae Yamaguti, 1939. Expand
Parasites of the Vermilion Snapper, Rhomboplites aurorubens (Cuvier), from the Western Atlantic Ocean
TLDR
Rhomboplites aurorubens represents a new host record for at least 8 of the parasites and Ribosomal DNA sequences from 7 of the helminth species were generated and made available in the National Institutes of Health genetic sequence database (GenBank). Expand
