Rhythmical Hatching and Oncomiracidial Behaviour in the Hexabothriid Monogenean Rajonchocotyle Emarginata from the Gills of Raja spp.
TLDR
The success of these renewed attempts to hatch the eggs of R. emarginata provided an opportunity to study the behaviour of the free-swimming oncomiracidium and attempts were made to relate hatching phenomena and larval behaviour to the behaviours of the host.

The alleged alternation of sexual phases in Kuhnia scombri, a monogenean of Scomber scombrus
SUMMARY In 1945 Sproston stated that an alternation of sexual phases takes place in Kuhnia scombri, a monogenean of Scomber scombrus, but an examination of egg-laying, the state of the sexual organs

Protein synthesis, growth and energetics in larval herring (Clupea harengus) at different feeding regimes
TLDR
Rapid growth in herring larvae thus appears to be characterized by moderate levels of protein turnover similar to those obtained for larger fish.

The Relation of Animal Size to Oxygen Consumption in Some Fresh-Water Turbellarian Worms
TLDR
Only Crenobia alpina satisfies the theoretical requirements of the law, and in this species it is shown that the size factor is practically unchanged when the oxygen consumptions are determined at 7.0° C.
Breathing Movements in Entobdella Soleae (Trematoda, Monogenea) from the Skin of the Common Sole
  • G. Kearn
  • Biology
    Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom
  • 1962
TLDR
An undulating movement of the body was observed in Entobdella soleae, a monogenean found on the blind surface of a mud-dwelling flat-fish, Solea solea, at Plymouth, and a similar movement was noted in three other skin-parasitic monogeneans.
Hatching rhythms in three species of Diclidophora (Monogenea) with observations on host behaviour
TLDR
Observation on the behaviour of the host fishes suggest that the hatching rhythms are adapted to specific host behaviour patterns, and neither mechanical disturbance nor the proximity of host tissue caused hatching in D. merlangi or D. luscae.
The Adhesive Mechanisms of Monogenetic Trematodes: the Attachment of Species of the Diclidophoridae to the Gills of Gadoid Fishes
  • J. Llewellyn
  • Biology
    Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom
  • 1958
An investigation of the adhesive mechanisms in all nine species of the genus Diclidophora has shown that there is a common structure consisting of a pair of hinged jaws operated by intrinsic muscles
Observations on the food and the gut pigment of the Polyopisthocotylea (Trematoda: Monogenea)
TLDR
It has been shown by spectroscopic and histochemical methods that eight representative species of Polyopisthocotylea feed mainly on the blood of their hosts, and in a more limited sample of skin-and cloaca-inhabiting Monopists there was no evidence of a blood-feeding habit.
Responses of Aquatic Invertebrates to Declining Oxygen Conditions
TLDR
The results suggest a phylogenetic trend of increasing regulation of aerobic metabolism in response to declining environmental levels as animals acquire structures that effectively insulate their respiring tissue from the habitat.
The host-specificity, micro-ecology, adhesive attitudes, and comparative morphology of some trematode gill parasites

TLDR
This is the first attempt to investigate the distribution and morphology of the parasite diclidophoroidean trematodes in relation to their micro-habitats.
Relations Between Gill Structure and Activity in Fish
TLDR
Applying the results to benthic species, it is conceivable that, while slowness of locomotion in an environment with a large supply of slow moving or even sessile food formed no hindrance, the sequence of causes and effects during gill evolution is as follows.
