Monogeneans in Introduced and Native Cichlids in México: Evidence for Transfer
We examined 2 cichlid fish species native to México, Cichlasoma callolepis and C. fenestratum, and 2 introduced African cichlids, Oreochromis aureus and O. niloticus, from 3 localities inExpand
Atlas of the helminth parasites of cichlid fish of Mexico.

Spatial and temporal repeatability in parasite community structure of tropical fish hosts
An assessment is made of the repeatability of parasite community structure in space for a marine fish, and in space and time for a freshwater fish from south-eastern Mexico. The marine fish speciesExpand
Helminth communities of four commercially important fish species from Chetumal Bay, Mexico
Abstract The relative importance of ecology and evolution as factors determining species richness and composition of the helminth communities of fish is a matter of current debate. TheoreticalExpand
Can parasites really reveal environmental impact?
This review assesses the usefulness of parasites as bioindicators of environmental impact. Relevant studies published in the past decade were compiled; factorial meta-analysis demonstratedExpand
Pseudorhabdosynochus yucatanensis sp. n. (Monogenea: Diplectanidae) from the gills of the red grouper Epinephelus morio (Pisces: Serranidae) of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico.
Pseudorhabdosynochus yucatanensis sp. n. (Diplectanidae) is described from the gills of the red grouper, Epinephelus morio (Valenciennes, 1824) (Serranidae), from the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula,Expand
Species of Ascocotyle Looss, 1899 (Digenea: Heterophyidae) of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico, and notes on their life-cycles
Heterophyid trematodes of the genus Ascocotyle Looss, 1899, metacercariae of which were found in fish from freshwater (cenotes [sinkholes], lakes and the Río Hondo River) and brackish coastal lagoonsExpand
Geographical distribution of protozoan and metazoan parasites of farmed Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus (L.) (Perciformes: Cichlidae) in Yucatán, México
BackgroundIn Yucatán State, southern México, as in many other parts of the world where tilapia has been introduced for aquaculture, the deficient application of management measures has led to theExpand
Helminth parasites of Epinephelus morio (Pisces: Serranidae) of the Yucatan Peninsula, southeastern Mexico.
The present paper comprises a systematic survey of helminths from 202 red groupers, Epinephelus morio (Valenciennes) (Pisces: Serranidae), the most important commercial marine fish in the region,Expand
The phylogenetic relationships and historical biogeography of species of Sciadicleithrum parasitizing Neotropical cichlid fishes were studied. Hypotheses were: Did the presence of SciadicleithrumExpand
