In Northeast Luzon, a community-based conservation approach was adopted with the aim of reaching sustainable co-habitation of crocodiles and local people, and the lessons learned could be beneficial to a larger effort to conserve the Philippine crocodile in the wild.
Gastrointestinal helminth parasites of the American Crocodile (Crocodylus acutus) in Southern Quintana Roo, Mexico.
Terranova crocodili is a new host record for C. acutus and the remaining helminth genera showed lower prevalence and infested < 10% of crocodiles, and the first helminethological survey from C. Acutus in the region was carried out.
A Checklist of Host-Parasite Interactions of the Order Crocodylia
This volume delivers the first checklist of crocodilians and their parasites for researchers and scholars in biology, herpetology, and ecology in order to further the knowledge and study of crocodilian-parasite dynamics and improve the understanding of human impacts on ecosystems.
A new species of Neorhadinorhynchus (Acanthocephala: Cavisomidae) from Platax teira (Ephippidae) from Iraqi marine waters
ABSTRACT A new species of Neorhadinorhynchus (Acanthocephala: Cavisomidae), N. basrahiensis, is described from the small intestine of the longfin batfish Platax teira Forsskål, 1775, from Iraqi
On four species of echinorhynchid acanthocephalans from marine fish in Halong Bay, Vietnam, including the description of three new species and a key to the species of Gorgorhynchus
Four species of echinorhynchid acanthocephalans were collected from marine fish off Cat Ba Island, Halong Bay, Gulf of Tonkin, Vietnam, in the spring of 2009 and stood out as uniquely and considerably different from their closest relatives to warrant their reporting.
A review of the genus Sclerocollum Schmidt & Paperna, 1978 (Acanthocephala: Cavisomidae) from rabbitfishes (Siganidae) in the Indian and Pacific Oceans
The lengths of proboscis hooks were useful variables for separating specimens into groups and supported the presence of two known species (Sc. robustum and Sc. rubrimaris) and one new species (sc. australis n. sp.) in Australian waters.
Acanthocephala of marine fishes off Fiji Islands, with descriptions of Filisoma longcementglandatus n. sp., Neorhadinorhynchus macrospinosus n. sp. (Cavisomidae), and gravid females of Rhadinorhynchus johnstoni (Rhadinorhynchidae); and keys to species of the genera Filisoma and Neorhadinorhynchus.
A parasitological collection from marine fishes off the Fiji Islands yielded 5 species of acanthocephalans from 4 species of fish as follows; Filisoma longcementglandatus is distinguished from all other species of the genus by its very long cement glands and size and armature of its proboscis.
Remarkable morphological variation in the proboscis of Neorhadinorhynchus nudus (Harada, 1938) (Acanthocephala: Echinorhynchida)
The surprising, and previously undocumented level of intraspecific variation in proboscis morphology found in the present study, underscores the need to use molecular markers for delimiting acanthocephalan species.
Sclerocollum rubrimaris gen. et sp. n. from Siganus spp. differs from others in Rhadinorhynch- idae in lacking trunk spines but possessing irregular plaques of hook material in the wall of the
Acanthocephalans from Red Sea fishes. Family Cavisomidae Meyer, 1932: The seasonal cycle of Diplosentis nudus (Harada, 1938) Pichelin et Cribb, 2001 in a definitive fish host, and a comment on Sclerocollum Schmidt et Paperna, 1978
The seasonal cycle of D. nudus in its definitive host is described herein for the first time and Sclerocollum rubrimaris is retained as a valid genus within the Cavisomidae.
