Invasive Ponto-Caspian Amphipods and Fish Increase the Distribution Range of the Acanthocephalan Pomphorhynchus tereticollis in the River Rhine
Non-indigenous species that become invasive are one of the main drivers of biodiversity loss worldwide. In various freshwater systems in Europe, populations of native amphipods and fish areExpand
Nematode eel parasite found inside acanthocephalan cysts – a “Trojan horse” strategy?
BackgroundThe invasive eel parasite Anguillicoloides crassus (syn. Anguillicola crassus) is considered one of the major causes for the decline of the European eel (Anguilla anguilla) panmicticExpand
Cooling water of power plant creates “hot spots” for tropical fishes and parasites
Thermally altered water bodies can function as “hot spots” where non-native species are establishing self-sustaining populations beyond their tropical and subtropical native regions. Whereas manyExpand
Getting What Is Served? Feeding Ecology Influencing Parasite-Host Interactions in Invasive Round Goby Neogobius melanostomus
Freshwater ecosystems are increasingly impacted by alien invasive species which have the potential to alter various ecological interactions like predator-prey and host-parasite relationships. Here,Expand
First evidence for a possible invasional meltdown among invasive fish parasites
Biological invasions are frequently studied topics in ecological research. Unfortunately, within invasion ecology parasite-associated aspects such as parasite impacts on new environments and on localExpand
On the occurrence of three non-native cichlid species including the first record of a feral population of Pelmatolapia (Tilapia) mariae (Boulenger, 1899) in Europe
Thermally influenced freshwater systems provide suitable conditions for non-native species of tropical and subtropical origin to survive and form proliferating populations beyond their native ranges.Expand
The Main River and Main–Danube Canal: A Hub for Ponto-Caspian Parasite Invasion
The Main and the Main–Danube Canal create a link between the North Sea and the Black Sea, which facilitates transfers and transportation of goods over long distances. At the same time, they act as aExpand
