Phylogenetic relationships of the Gorgoderidae (Platyhelminthes: Trematoda), including the proposal of a new subfamily (Degeneriinae n. subfam.)
Phylogenetic analyses of a range of gorgoderid trematodes based on ITS2 and partial 28S rDNA data lead us to propose the Degeneriinae n. subfam. for the genus Degeneria in recognition of itsExpand
Molecular approaches to trematode systematics: ‘best practice’ and implications for future study
Advice is provided regarding the ‘best molecular practice’ for trematode taxonomy and systematic studies, in an attempt to help unify the field and provide a solid foundation to underpin future work. Expand
Trematodes of the Great Barrier Reef, Australia: emerging patterns of diversity and richness in coral reef fishes.
The goal is a comprehensive characterisation of this fauna, and what work needs to be done to achieve this is outlined and it is discussed whether this goal is practically achievable or philosophically justifiable. Expand
Elucidation of the first definitively identified life cycle for a marine turtle blood fluke (Trematoda: Spirorchiidae) enables informed control.
The molecular elucidation of the complete life cycle of a marine spirorchiid, identified as Amphiorchis sp. Expand
Staphylorchis cymatodes (Gorgoderidae: Anaporrhutinae) from carcharhiniform, orectolobiform and myliobatiform elasmobranchs of Australasia: low host specificity, wide distribution and morphological
The genus Staphylorchis now contains only two valid species, S. cymatodes and S. pacifica, and is morphologically plastic, with body size, size of specific organs and body shape differing dramatically between specimens from different host species. Expand
Trematodes of fishes of the Indo-west Pacific: told and untold richness
The Indo-west Pacific is a marine bioregion stretching from the east coast of Africa to Hawaii, French Polynesia and Easter Island and it is considered impossible to predict the true trematode richness for the region. Expand
Monorchiid trematodes of the painted sweetlips, Diagramma labiosum (Perciformes: Haemulidae), from the southern Great Barrier Reef, including a new genus and three new species
Five monorchiid species are reported from Diagramma labiosum Macleay (Perciformes: Haemulidae) collected from Heron Island on the southern Great Barrier Reef (GBR), including two described species and three new species, including one new genus. Expand
Pseudobacciger cheneyae n. sp. (Digenea: Gymnophalloidea) from Weber’s chromis (Chromis weberi Fowler & Bean) (Perciformes: Pomacentridae) at Lizard Island, Great Barrier Reef, Australia
A new species of digenean, Pseudobacciger cheneyae n. sp., is described from the intestines of Weber’s chromis (Chromis weberi Fowler & Bean) from off Lizard Island, Great Barrier Reef, Australia.Expand
A complex of Cardicola Short, 1953 (Digenea: Aporocotylidae) species infecting the milkfish Chanos chanos Forsskål (Gonorynchiformes), with descriptions of two new species
Molecular phylogenetic analysis, based on both ITS2 and partial 28S rDNA regions, shows that these three species form a clade nested within that formed by existing species of Cardicola. Expand
Comparative population genomics confirms little population structure in two commercially targeted carcharhinid sharks
SNPs obtained through complexity-reduction genome sequencing are used to quantify the population structure of two highly mobile and commercially fished shark species: bronze whalers and dusky sharks and found evidence of connectivity across the regions sampled, suggesting the cumulative effects of regional fisheries and the potential for cross-jurisdictional fishery assessments and management should be considered.
