Monogeneans in Introduced and Native Cichlids in México: Evidence for Transfer
TLDR
The present findings provide evidence of monogenean transfer from African to American cichlids and vice versa, and the first record of exotic monogeneans in the genus Cichlidogyrus and Enterogyrus infecting native American cICHlid fish.
Atlas of the helminth parasites of cichlid fish of Mexico.
TLDR
An Atlas of the Helminth Parasites of Cichlid Fish of Mexico and its Discoverers is published.
Helminth communities of four commercially important fish species from Chetumal Bay, Mexico
TLDR
Phylogeny is important because it clearly separates all four host species by their specialist parasites, although specific habitat and feeding habits also significantly influence the differentiation between the four fish species.
Spatial and temporal repeatability in parasite community structure of tropical fish hosts
TLDR
A preliminary result suggests that distance between localities is an important determinant of predictability in parasite community structure.
Species of Ascocotyle Looss, 1899 (Digenea: Heterophyidae) of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico, and notes on their life-cycles
TLDR
The heron Casmerodius albus represents a new definitive host of adults of all the above-mentioned species excluding A. (A.) chandleri, which is reported from Mexico for the first time.
Pseudorhabdosynochus yucatanensis sp. n. (Monogenea: Diplectanidae) from the gills of the red grouper Epinephelus morio (Pisces: Serranidae) of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico.
TLDR
A new species is described from the gills of the red grouper, Epinephelus morio, from the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico, characterized by having both the ventral and the dorsal squamodiscs composed of 10-12 rows of rods, with 0-1 innermost row forming a closed circle.
METAZOAN PARASITE INFRACOMMUNITIES OF FLORIDA POMPANO (TRACHINOTUS CAROLINUS) FROM THE COAST OF THE YUCATAN PENINSULA, MEXICO
TLDR
Host feeding habits, the distribution of intermediate hosts and infective stages, the local species pool, and a phylogenetic component seem to be determining the characteristics of these metazoan parasite infracommunities of the Florida pompano.
Parasites as bioindicators of environmental degradation in Latin America: A meta-analysis
TLDR
It is suggested that different groups of parasites have distinct responses to various environmental insults and that the groups should be separately analysed after the accumulation of a sufficient number of studies.
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,
