A healthy ecosystem is characterized by a high diversity of species, whose interactions autoregulate their populations. Parasites contribute to such diversity and autoregulate communities by mediating the interactions among free-living species. This project will characterise parasite populations in two sentinel fish species that are common in our rivers, in order to establish their use as monitoring tools.
