When oncomiracidia of Neobenedenia girellae (Monogenea, Capsalidae) were incubated in wells with lyophilized extracts of fish skin epithelia on the bottom, some attached to the well bottom with the haptor unfolded and shed the ciliated epidermal cells. Based on these morphological changes in...
Acanthamoeba species can cause granulomatous encephalitis and keratitis in man. The mechanisms that underlie tissue damage and invasion by the amoebae are poorly understood, but involvement of as yet uncharacterized proteinases has been suggested. Here, we employed gelatin-containing gels and...
Whereas terminological recommendations require authors to use mean intensity or mean abundance to quantify parasites in a sample of hosts, awkward statistical limitations also force them to use either the median or the geometric mean of these measures when making comparisons across different...
The aggregated nature of helminth parasite populations has led to the suggestion that selectively treating heavily infected hosts can efficiently reduce parasite abundance and morbidity within a host population. Moreover, it has been postulated that a selective treatment protocol might have...
Margolisius abditus n. gen., n. sp. (Copepoda: Lernaeopodidae) is described from female specimens collected from gill lamellae of a remora, Remora remora (L.), captured in the Gulf of California near Punta Arena, Baja California. Comparison of this species with 13 lernaeopodid genera with which...
Postoncomiracidia of Dionchus sp. are described from specimens collected from the skin of 2 blacktip sharks Carcharhinus limbatus, captured in the northern Gulf of Mexico. The parasites resemble nonciliated oncomiracidia hatched from eggs laid by Dionchus sp. on gills of a cobia Rachycentron...
