By Alan J. Southward, Craig M. Young, Lee A. Fuiman

Quantity forty three is an eclectic quantity with stories on ecology and biogeography of marine parasites; fecundity: features and function in life-history recommendations of marine invertebrates; the ecology of Southern Ocean Pack-ice; and organic and distant sensing views of pigmentation in coral reef organisms. Advances in Marine Biology was once first released in 1963. Now edited by means of A.J. Southward (Marine organic organization, UK), P.A. Tyler (Southampton Oceanography organization, UK), C.M. younger (Harbor department Oceanographic establishment, united states) and L.A. Fuiman (University of Texas, USA), the serial publishes in-depth and updated reports on quite a lot of issues so as to entice postgraduates and researchers in marine biology, fisheries technology, ecology, zoology, oceanography. Eclectic volumes within the sequence are supplemented by way of thematic volumes on such subject matters as The Biology of Calanoid Copepods . Key good points * AMB first released 1963 * This quantity provides a variety of reports at the biology of lesser-known taxa of the phylum Mollusca, together with: * The in most cases diminutive protobranch bivalves * The slug-like shelled opisthobranchs * The hugely really expert and evolutionarily complicated tusk shells * the attractive, beneficial, but frustratingly hard-to-collect slit shells

Example text

Juveniles of gnathiid isopods infecting many fish species are the main food item of the cleaner wrasse Labroides miniatus on the Great Barrier Reef. Infection occurs during the day and at night (Grutter and Hendrikz, 1999, Grutter, 36 KLAUS ROHDE 2000). Larger gnathiids are preferred food for the cleaners (Grutter, 1997a). Removal of all cleaners from eight reefs over 6 months did not lead to any effects on the fish, nor did it affect the parasite load (Grutter, 1996, 1997b). Poulin (1999c) examined the relationship between size of parasites and their abundance, as measured by prevalence and intensity of infection.

E. as the product of synxenic (= in the same host) speciation. The only study attempting an evaluation of the occurrence of synxenic speciation in parasites by molecular techniques, was that by Littlewood et al. (1997). They showed that speciation in polystomes infecting different sites in the same turtle species must have been allo- and not synxenic, because species infecting the same site in different host species (even if they are from different continents) are more closely related than species infecting different sites in the same host species.
