Live action photomicroscopy
(900 KB AVI file)
The still photograph and the video clip show the large parasitic isopod, Lironeca californica on the head region of its fish host, the shiner perch, Cymatogaster aggregata
The parasite species selected include primarily examples obtained using live video photomicroscopy. This footage was obtained by students during field trips to the Bamfield Marine Station or during parasitology/ invertebrate zoology laboratory classes in the Department of Biology at Malaspina University-College, Nanaimo, British Columbia.
|Haemobaphes diceraus |
This chapter is designed to illustrate some of this diversity by examining the morphological and life-cycle adaptations of representative marine crustaceans found on, primarily, fish collected from the Bamfield Marine Station.
