Phylogeny and classification of the Digenea (Platyhelminthes: Trematoda).
TLDR
Although a majority of families and to a lesser degree, superfamilies are supported as currently defined, the traditional divisions of the Echinostomida, Plagiorchiida and Strigeida were found to comprise non-natural assemblages. Expand
Keys to the cestode parasites of vertebrates.
TLDR
This book provides keys to enable specialists and non-specialists to identify cestodes to generic level and is a standard work on tapeworm identification and will be indispensable for parasitologists. Expand
The Magnitude of Global Marine Species Diversity
TLDR
The first register of the marine species of the world is compiled and it is estimated that between one-third and two-thirds of marine species may be undescribed, and previous estimates of there being well over one million marine species appear highly unlikely. Expand
Interrelationships and evolution of the tapeworms (Platyhelminthes: Cestoda).
TLDR
Interrelationships of the tapeworms were examined by use of small (SSU) and large (LSU) subunit ribosomal DNA sequences and morphological characters, finding the LSU data to be more informative than the SSU data and more consistent with inferences from morphology, although nodal support was generally weak for most basal nodes. Expand
Keys to the Trematoda
TLDR
This volume covers five superfamilies within the Order Plagiorchiida and the family Didymozoidae, with keys for their identification at the family, subfamily and generic levels. Expand
Phylogeny of the Platyhelminthes and the evolution of parasitism
TLDR
The combined evidence solution for the phylogeny of fiatworms based on 18S rDNA and morphology is used to interpret morphological and life-history data and to support a model for the evolution and radiation of neodermatan parasites in the group. Expand
Digenean species diversity in teleost fish from a nature reserve off Corsica, France (Western Mediterranean), and a comparison with other Mediterranean regions
TLDR
A more detailed analysis of the diversity of these parasites in sparid fishes indicates that the digenean diversity off Corsica is far greater than that in other parts of the Mediterranean. Expand
Added resolution among ordinal level relationships of tapeworms (Platyhelminthes: Cestoda) with complete small and large subunit nuclear ribosomal RNA genes.
TLDR
The addition of lsrDNA D4-D12 has provided an overall more resolved and better supported cestode phylogeny, which further promotes the utility of complete lsr DNA as phylogenetic marker where ssrDNA alone proves inadequate. Expand
