Main Description

This is the second of three volumes of Keys to the Trematoda, a series on the systematics and identification of the Class Trematoda. The book presents the taxa in the Order Echinostomida and some of those in the Order Plagiorchiida, with keys for their identification at the superfamily, family, subfamily and generic levels. The keys are based on critical examination of specimens by subject experts, and generic diagnoses are accompanied by illustrations of important morphological characters. This volume includes seven echinostomidan superfamilies (the echinostomatoids, haploporoids, haplosplanchnoids, heronimoids, microscaphidioids, paramphistomatoids and pronocephaloids) and two plagiorchiidan superfamilies (the allocreadioids and lepocreadioids).The first volume covered the Subclass Aspidogastrea and Order Strigeida, while the third volume, due to be published in early 2006, will cover the remaining members of the Plagiorchiida.

Bray Systematics, phylogeny and biology of parasitic worms, with emphasis on the Platyhelminthes. Current research interests include: the digenean parasites of marine fishes, in particular those of the deep-sea and of coral reefs and the evolution of parasitism in the Platyhelminthes. Experienced field worker, having participated in 31 research cruises, and collected at sites in England, Scotland, Wales, Denmark, Norway, Hungary, Bulgaria, Turkey, Canada, South Africa, Australia, French Polynesia and Palau. Trematoda, Nematodes

Gibson I am a specialist (morphologist/taxonomist), with 40 years of experience and more than 300 publications, on the systematics of helminth parasites (all groups but especially the Trematoda and Nematoda), with a particular interest in those from fishes and aquatic mammals. I also have some expertise with data-bases and faunistics. Nematode, Trematode, helmintology
