Higher parasite richness, abundance and impact in native versus introduced cichlid fishes

Roche, Dominique; Leung, Brian; Mendoza Franco, Edgar F.; Torchin, Mark E.


Empirical studies suggest that most exotic species have fewer parasite species in their introduced range relative to their native range. However, it is less clear how, ecologically, the loss of parasite species translates into a measurable advantage for invaders relative to native species in the new community. We compared parasitism at three levels (species richness, abundance and impact) for a pair of native and introduced cichlid fishes which compete for resources in the Panama Canal...[Show more]
