The impact of parasitism on population dynamics and community structure of marine animals is an area of growing interest in marine ecology. The effect of a microphallid trematode, Maritrema novaezelandensis on the survival of its amphipod host, Paracalliope novizealandiae, was investigated by a laboratory study combined with data from field collections. In the laboratory, the effect of infection level on host mortality was investigated. Four groups of individuals were exposed to 0 (control), 5… CONTINUE READING
