Parasite communities of two three-spined stickleback populations in subarctic Norway—effects of a small spatial-scale host introduction
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-01-30)
We compared metazoan parasite communities of an introduced three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) population with the nearby source population in northern Norway to study differences and clarify if factors controlling parasite dispersal act on a small spatialscale. The two component communities were highly similar. All parasite taxa found in the source population also occurred in the ...
Ontogenetic dynamics of infection with Diphyllobothrium spp. cestodes in sympatric Arctic charr Salvelinus alpinus (L.) and brown trout Salmo trutta L.
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-12-23)
The trophic niches of Arctic charr and brown trout differ when the species occur in sympatry . Their trophically transmitted parasit es are expected to reflect these differences. Here , we investigate how the infections of Diphyllobothrium dendriticum and Diphyllobothrium ditremum differ between charr and trout. These tapeworms use copepods ...
