Parasites of freshwater fishes and the Great American Biotic Interchange: a bridge too far?
TLDR
The review shows that ‘interchange’ is limited and asymmetrical, but simple narratives of northward isthmian dispersal will likely prove inadequate to explain the historical biogeography of many host–parasite associations in tropical Middle America, particularly those involving poeciliids.
Taxonomic status of Rhabdochona ictaluri (Nematoda: Rhabdochonidae) based on molecular and morphological evidence
TLDR
Newly sampled specimens of R. ictaluri were obtained from the type host and type locality and were used to perform a detailed morphological analysis and molecular phylogenetic inferences through one mitochondrial and two nuclear genes, and robust species limits were established between these two putative species.
A New Genus and Two New Species of Proteocephalidean Tapeworms (Cestoda) from Cichlid Fish (Perciformes: Cichlidae) in the Neotropics
TLDR
Based on a phylogenetic analysis of the 28S rRNA gene (lsrDNA) sequences, C. gillesi forms a lineage sister to S. megalodiscus, thus supporting the morphological similarity of both genera that occur in fishes of the same family in the same zoogeographical region.
The invasive tapeworm Bothriocephalus acheilognathi Yamaguti, 1934 in the endangered killifish Profundulus candalarius Hubbs, 1924 in Chiapas, Mexico.
TLDR
The most important features of the data presented here include the confirmation that B. acheilognathi can reproduce in Mexico and a continuous recruitment of cestodes within the host population, as well as a nearly continuous growth and maturation of the parasites to adults.
PLATELMINTOS PARASITOS DE PEIXES DO GÊNERO Cichla (PERCIFORMES, CICHLIDAE) EM BACIAS DA AMÉRICA DO SUL
TLDR
O estudo reuniu a maior quantidade de dados disponiveis sobre a presenca de parasitos do filo Platyhelminthes em peixes do genero Cichla (tucunares) em bacias da America do Sul, constatando-se that esses peixe atuam tanto como hospedeiros definitivos quanto como Hospedeiro intermediarios.
Parasitic Helminths of the Freshwater Neotropical Fish Hoplias malabaricus (Characiformes, Erythrinidae) from South America Basins
This study gathered the largest amount of evidence available concerning the presence of helminths in the Hoplias malabaricus species (Trahira, traíra in Portuguese) from limnic ecosystems in South
About the biodiversity of parasites of freshwater fish from Brazil
TLDR
The number of parasites described so far is low compared to the biodiversity of host species in the country, and that the number of parasite of the different taxa is very variable.
Parasitic Helminths of the Freshwater Neotropical Fish Hoplias malabaricus (Characiformes, Erythrinidae) from South America Basins
This study gathered the largest amount of evidence available concerning the presence of helminths in the Hoplias malabaricus species (Trahira, traira in Portuguese) from limnic ecosystems in South
Metazoan parasite species richness in Neotropical fishes: hotspots and the geography of biodiversity
TLDR
Mexico stands out as a hotspot of parasite diversity for freshwater fishes, as does Brasil for marine fishes, however, among 57 marine fish species common to all 3 regions, populations from the Caribbean consistently harboured more parasite species.
Conservation of the Biodiversity of Brazil's Inland Waters
TLDR
The conservation and improved management of river corridors and associated floodplains and the maintenance of their hydrological integrity is fundamental to preserving Brazil's freshwater biodiversity and the health of its aquatic resources.
