The evolutionary expansion and host-parasite relationships of the Digenea.

Abstract

Relevant data on the Digenea extracted from a host-parasite data-base are analysed in relation to host-groups, host-specificity, speciation, radiation and geographical distribution. The classification, evolution, co-evolution, and co-speciation of the group are discussed. Principal components analyses indicated that 119 families formed 11 groups in relation… (More)
