The present paper describes the characteristic ultrastructural features of spermiogenesis and the spermatozoon of Monorchis parvus (Trematoda, Digenea, Monorchiidae). This spermiogenesis is characterized by a flagellar rotation of about 120 degrees and the formation of a novel ultrastructural element: a centriolar extension. It nevertheless follows the(More)
This paper constitutes the first ultrastructural study of spermiogenesis and the spermatozoon of a Digenea belonging to the family Zoogonidae, Diphterostomum brusinae. Spermiogenesis follows the general pattern found in the digeneans. It begins with the formation of a differentiation zone in the spermatid. The two centrioles give rise to flagella. These two(More)
The spatial distribution of parasite communities from teleost fishes (Diplodus vulgaris, Mullus surmuletus, Pagellus erythrinus, Phycis phycis, Scorpaena scrofa and Symphodus tinca) was studied in the Bonifacio Strait Marine Reserve (Corsica Island) with different protection levels. Canonical correspondence analysis was used to study spatial patterns and to(More)
Ultrastructure of mature spermatozoon of Anisocoelium capitellatum is described with transmission electron microscopy. The description gave evidence of some characteristics of this digenean. The male gamete presents features allowing the distinction between A. capitellatum and other digenetic trematodes. It is characterized by original anterior and(More)
Chronic ulcerative dermatopathy (CUD) also known as chronic erosive dermatopathy, hole-in-the-head, head and lateral line erosion syndrome (HLLE) and lateral line depigmentation (LLD) is a chronic disease of unknown aetiology that affects the lateral line canals of the head and the trunk of various fish species. It has been described only in freshwater(More)
This study was conducted to evaluate the antibacterial activity of Inula graveolens and Santolina corsica essential oils on Staphylococcus aureus and investigate their effects at the cellular level. The mode of inhibition of both essential oils against S. aureus ATCC 6538P (CIP 53.156) was assessed by determining the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC)(More)
