In February 1981, ASP President Elmer Noble on recommendation from the Editor, Austin Maclnnis, appointed an ad hoc committee "to establish working definitions of a few terms used and misused by parasitological ecologists" as a guide for authors submitting papers to The Journal of Parasitology. Appointed to the committee were Drs. Gerald Esch, John Holmes, Armand Kuris, Gerhard Schad, and Leo Margolis (Chairman). As a starting point the committee examined the recommendations (Margolis et al…

Aspects of the biology of Trypanorhynch tapeworms and investigations on their use as biological tags
TLDR
Four hundred papers published in refereed papers during the years 1935-1985 were researched for information on the biology of trypanorhynchs, and a publishable host-parasite list was compiled as a complement to the only previous monograph on all known members of the order TrypanorHyncha.

Host-parasite relationships of helminth parasites in leeches of the genus Haemopis. II. Associations at the host-species level
Specimens of five species of mature enteric trematodes, an unidentified tetracotyle, two species of nematodes, one enteric and one parenteric, and unidentified glossiphonid leeches were recovered
A survey of helminths in stray cats from Copenhagen with ecological aspects
TLDR
The prevalence ofToxocara cati was found to be independent of time of collection and the sex and habitat of the cats and identical in cats with or without Taenia, indicating that paratenic hosts do not play an important epizootiological role in the transmission of T. cati.
New trends in research on parasite host specificity: a survey of current parasitological literature.
TLDR
The authors review some problems related to terminology used in the studies of host-parasite relationships and recapitulate the subjects of five articles, in which new indices of the range and characters of hosts specificity are proposed.
Tissue and Gastrointestinal Parasites of Colonizing Nine-Banded Armadillos at the Edge of Their Northern Range
TLDR
This study represents the first effort to document the parasitological record of the expanding armadillo within 30 yr of their initial record in Illinois and the American Midwest, and sets the timeline to observe the establishment of A. sogandaresi in the Midwest.
Diversity of the parasite fauna of Mus musculus L. (Rodentia, Muridae) from different habitats
TLDR
The species composition of a parasitic fauna in a host is a net result of specificity of individual parr asitic species with respect to the host concerned and an array of complex interactions involved in the paraa site's functioning in the external environment.
INTERSPECIFIC ANTAGONISM AND SPECIES COEXISTENCE IN A DIVERSE GUILD OF LARVAL TREMATODE PARASITES

The salt marsh snail Cerithidea californica is first intermediate host to a diverse guild of larval trematode parasites. In Bolinas Lagoon, in central California, the site of this study, at least 15
Symbiotic polychaetes: Review of known species
TLDR
The main characteristic features of symbiotic polychaetes and their relationships are discussed and include systematic account, distribution within host groups, host specificity, intra-host distribution, location on the host, infestation prevalence and intensity, and morphological, behavioural and/or physiological and reproductive adaptations.

Competitive exclusion between two intestinal parasites of the three-spined stickleback, Gasterosteus aculeatus L.
TLDR
The intestinal distribution of these two species when they occurred in the same fish for evidence of interspecific interaction, and to determine the role of any such interaction in the ecology of the two parasite species are studied.
Catch Composition of the Sand Crab Fishery in Moreton Bay
TLDR
It is recommended that the legal size limits and the restrictions on the take of female crabs be continued, but that Sacculina-infested crabs be accepted for market.
Niche, Habitat, and Ecotope
TLDR
The confusion comes from use of the same word, "niche," for different concepts, which makes "'niche'" synonymous with "'habitat,'" for the present, the "'hab itat + niche" concept.
An Analysis of the Relationship Between Stress and Parasitism
TLDR
The impact of stress upon the dynamics of host and parasite populations is varied and the varied response to stressor input at the individual, population and ecosystem levels is dictated by the capacity for adaptability present at each level.
Choniosphaera indica, a copepod parasitic on the crab Neptunus sp.
TLDR
A new species Choniosphaera indica, parasitic on the edible crab Neptunus sanguinolentus of Madras, is described.
In vitro effect of fungicides on hyphal growth and sporogenesis of Lagenidium spp. isolated from Penaeus monodon larvae and Scylla serrata eggs.
TLDR
Variable mycostatic levels, however, were exhibited with copper sulphate, 2,4-D, hydrogen peroxide, methylene blue, pimaricin, resiguard and tolnaftate while amphotericin, iodine, nystatin, triacetin, boric acid, fungitox and PVP-iodine proved to be poor antifungal agents.
Atkinsiella hamanaensis sp. nov isolated from cultivated ova of the mangrove crab, Scylla serrata ( Forsskal )
TLDR
A marine mastigomycete isolated from ova of the mangrove crab, Scylla serrata (Forsskal), is described and illustrated and its growth was observed in peptone-yeast extract glucose broth containing 1–5% NaCl, with optimum growth at 2–3% Na Cl.
