  author={Jilj{\'i} Sitko and Izabella Rząd},
SummaryThe study aimed to describe morphological and morphometric characteristics of species representing the genera Diplostomum Nordmann, 1832 and Ornithodiplostomum Dubois, 1936, originating from naturally infected birds in the Czech Republic and in Poland, and to compare their species richness and the intensity of infection in their avian hosts. Diplostomum mergi Dubois, 1932, D. parviventosum Dubois, 1932, D. phoxini (Faust, 1918), D. pusillum (Dubois, 1928), and Ornithodiplostomum…

Trematode fauna (Platyhelminthes: Digenea) of some sea ducks wintering on the southern Baltic coast (NW Poland) – a general comparison
The common scoter differs from the velvet scoter and long-tailed duck in its statistically significantly higher prevalence of G. brevicolle, lower prevalence of L. propinqua and lower intensity of infection with C. concava.

Trematode diversity reflecting the community structure of Danish freshwater systems: molecular clues
This survey contributes updated information on parasite–host relations and compatibility and may assist in describing the ecological structure of the investigated Danish freshwater ecosystems.
First Finding of Ornithodiplostomum scardinii (Schulman, 1952) Sudarikov et Kurotschkin, 1968 (Trematoda, Diplostomidae) in Rybinsk Reservoir
During a parasitological survey of nonnative fish species—rudd Scardinius erythrophthalmus—in the Rybinsk Reservoir, the metacercariae Ornithodiplostomum scardinii were found in its brain. This is
Comparison of Egg Morphometrics and Number of Two Molecularly Delineated Species of Diplostomum (Digenea)
Differences between egg characteristics of 2 molecularly delineated species of Diplostomum (Digenea) are examined to investigate whether interspecific differences exist in egg morphometrics or egg number and test if there are intraspecific relationships between size of the egg and the hindbody of adult worms or between size and fecundity.


Taxonomic structure of Digenea in wild ducks (Anatinae) from West Pomerania.
To determine the taxonomic structure of the Digenea, parasitising wild ducks living in West Pomerania, the research showed the presence of 29 species of digeneans from 11 families.
[Intestinal digeneans of birds (superfamily Diplostomoidea) of the masurian lakes].
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to complete the information on digenean fauna of birds on the basis of the collection of diplostomid digeneans gathered in 1994-1970 during the field
Digenean communities in the tufted duck [Aythya fuligula (L., 1758)] and greater scaup [A. marila (L., 1761)] wintering in the north-west of Poland
The structural similarity between digenean communities in the two duck species is most likely an effect of overlapping diets based on freshwater molluscs, components of thedigenean transmission pathway to definitive hosts.
[Helminthofauna of the goosander Mergus merganser L., 1758 from the north-western Poland].
A preliminary parasitological examination of the digestive tract of the goosander wintering on the Szczecin Lagoon detected a total of 1596 parasitic worms, characterized by considerable topical specificity, probably resulting from the feeding preferences of the worms.
Systematic relationships among six species of Diplostomum Nordmann, 1832 (Digenea) based on morphological and molecular data*
It was demonstrated that the phylogenetic trees obtained for morphological data at cercaria!, metacercarial and adult stages, as well as all characters together differ in branch topology from one another.
Cercaria vaullegeardi Pelseneer, 1906 (Digenea: Hemiuridae); development and ultrastructure
The encysted cercaria is described at the ultrastructural level for the first time and developmental stages are redescribed.
Parasitology meets ecology on its own terms: Margolis et al. revisited.
Suggestions for various terms used by parasitologists when describing the ecology of parasites are provided in an attempt to foster consistent use and to make terms used in parasite ecology easier to interpret for those who study free-living organisms.
