Infection success of Echinoparyphium aconiatum (Trematoda) in its snail host under high temperature: role of host resistance Leicht, Katja; Seppälä, Otto (BioMed Central Ltd., 2014)Background: Extreme weather events such as summer heat waves become more frequent owing to global climate change and are predicted to alter disease dynamics. This is because high temperatures can reduce host immune function. ...
Connection between temperature, larval production, virulence and geographical distribution of Rhipidocotyle parasites infecting the duck mussel, Anodonta anatina Choo, Jocelyn M. (University of Jyväskylä, 2015)In this thesis, two bucephalid trematode parasites Rhipidocotyle campanula and R. fennica, which use the same first (Anodonta anatina) and second intermediate (Rutilus rutilus) host were studied. The aim was to investigate ...
Spore-forming parasites infecting muscles of freshwater fishes : ecology and epidemiology Ahonen, Hanna (University of Jyväskylä, 2017)Fish parasites may potentially harm fisheries and aquaculture. Infected fish are unusable, even though they would not pose a direct risk to human health. The aim of this thesis was to investigate the ecology and ...
Glochidial infection by the endangered Margaritifera margaritifera (Mollusca) increased survival of salmonid host (Pisces) during experimental Flavobacterium disease outbreak Chowdhury, M. Motiur, R.; Roy, Amitav; Auvinen, Kalle; Pulkkinen, Katja; Suonia, Hanna; Taskinen, Jouni (Springer, 2021)Co-infections are common in host-parasite interactions, but studies about their impact on the virulence of parasites/diseases are still scarce. The present study compared mortality induced by a fatal bacterial pathogen, ...
Divergent parasite infections in sympatric cichlid species in Lake Victoria Karvonen, Anssi; Wagner, Catherine E.; Selz, Oliver M.; Seehausen, Ole (Wiley-Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2018)Parasitism has been proposed as a factor in host speciation, as an agent affecting coexistence of host species in species‐rich communities and as a driver of post‐speciation diversification. Young adaptive radiations of ...
