Data on the digenean parasites of 2238 teleosts from the Scandola Nature Reserve off Corsica are presented. These represent the largest general survey of digenean parasites attempted in the Mediterranean region and is the result of major collections and systematic reports published over the past 20 years. The number of different digenean species recorded from 63 fish species was 102. Full parasite-host and host-parasite lists are presented, with information on the geographical distribution of… Expand
Digenean species diversity in teleost fishes from the Gulf of Gabes, Tunisia (Western Mediterranean)
TLDR
The Gulf of Gabes shows the lowest diversity linked to the anthropogenic activities and impact of exotic species, and the use of Digenea as indicators of the state of the ecosystem is discussed. Expand
The Diversity of Teleost Fish Trematodes in the Bay of Bizerte, Tunisia (Western Mediterranean)
TLDR
The mean number of 2.58 species per host indicates a relatively high digenean diversity in the Bay of Bizerte, which is significantly higher than that reported off the southern coast of Tunisia and distinctly lower than that observed for teleost hosts in the Scandola Nature Reserve off Corsica. Expand
Biodiversity and structure of parasite communities in Boops boops (Teleostei: Sparidae) from the Western Mediterranean and off the North East Atlantic coasts of Spain.
The present study carried out a detailed assessment of the metazoan parasite fauna in Boops boops (Sparidae) along the Spanish coasts off the Western Mediterranean and North-East Atlantic, whichExpand
Digenean fauna diversity in Sparid fish from Tunisian coasts
TLDR
Generally, measures of prevalence, abundance and mean intensity are lower in fish from the Tunisian coasts compared with those from Scandola, and Arnola microcirrus, Derogenes latus, Peracreadium characis, Lepocreadium album, Proctoeces maculatus, and Zoogonus rubellus are reported in new hosts for the first time. Expand
Synopsis of the life cycles of Digenea (Platyhelminthes) from lagoons of the northern coast of the western Mediterranean
The present document reports on the large amount of data relating to digenean parasites recorded from or known to be present in various hosts in lagoons of the northern coast of the westernExpand
The Mediterranean: high discovery rates for a well-studied trematode fauna
TLDR
The descriptions of a large number of new taxa since 2000 indicate that focused efforts have resulted in a high discovery rate (2.4 species per year) and combined morphological and molecular methods promise more reliable estimates of digenean diversity in this region. Expand
Zoogeographical patterns of flatfish (Pleuronectiformes) parasites in the Northeast Atlantic and the importance of the Portuguese coast as a transitional area
TLDR
The Portuguese coast seems to play a significant role in the distribution of Pleuronectiformes’ parasites along the Northeast Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea, due to its transitional character and to the sympatric occurrence of related hosts, both promoting the acquisition of new parasite species or the maintenance of historical host-parasite relationships. Expand
Parasite communities of the white seabream Diplodus sargus sargus in the marine protected area of Medes Islands, north-west Mediterranean Sea.
TLDR
Comparisons show that differences within parasite infracommunities between the areas may be linked to increased host densities and habitat quality since the implementation of the NTZ and its protection measures. Expand
Effects of fishing on parasitism in a sparid fish: contrasts between two areas of the Western Mediterranean.
TLDR
The consistent differences in the richness, abundance and structure of parasite communities in B. boops from Santa Pola Bay and the Gulf of Oran may reflect the contrasting patterns of exploitation of the populations of this fish host at the two localities. Expand
The occurrence of the Japanese species Dinosoma lophiomi Toman, 1973 (Digenea: Hemiuridae) in Lophius piscatorius (Teleostei) from the western Mediterranean
Hemiurid worms from the stomach of the angler Lophius piscatorius off Corsica are described and considered to belong to a Japanese species, Dinosoma lophiomi Toman, 1973, which was originallyExpand

Community structure of digenean parasites of sparid and labrid fishes of the Mediterranean sea: a new approach.
TLDR
The results showed that potential microhabitats were vacant in the 2 host families studied revealing a lack of niche saturation because either there was little inter- and/or intraspecific competition or there were enough available space and resources within the host. Expand

Cryptic speciation among intestinal parasites (Trematoda: Digenea) infecting sympatric host fishes (Sparidae)
TLDR
Diet analyses available for the fish hosts were used to assess the degree of overlap in the use of food among the three species and showed that the distribution of parasites in Diplodus hosts is not a consequence of coevolutionary interactions. Expand
