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 ...
Transmission dynamics of the monogenean Gyrodactylus salaris under seminatural conditions
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014-07-12)
Tracking individual variation in the dynamics of parasite infections in wild populations is often complicated by lack of knowledge of the epidemiological history of hosts. Whereas the dynamics and development of Gyrodactylus salaris Malmberg, 1957, on Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L., are known from laboratory studies, knowledge about infection development on individual wild fishes is currently sparse. ...
