"Using marine trematode parasites to address macroecological questions with microscopic organisms" by James E. Byers, PhD, University of Georgia

Abstract:
Like many microscopic organisms, parasites play a largely unexamined role in most ecosystems. In nearshore marine communities trematode parasites are abundant, and through their obligate multi-host life cycles they integrate the dynamics of a wide variety of organisms.  Byers will present three aspects of these parasites that highlight their ecological roles, including

  1. the controls of their regional spatial variability
  2. their effects on community structure
  3. their utility as ecological tools to address pressing conservation concerns.
