Proportion of juvenile brine shrimps in each sample examined at pond CX (A) and pond 4 (B)
Proportions are shown for both Artemia species when present.
Brine shrimp Artemia individuals of different colouration
Examples highlighted with arrows from left to right are: light-red, dark-red, and not-red.
General aspect of adult brine shrimp females with different reproductive status. infected by larval cestodes (indicated by arrows)
(A) ovigerous, (B) castrated. Females are infected by larval cestodes (indicated by arrows).
Temporal dynamics of cestode infection in adult A. franciscana from pond CX and proportion of this species in the community, through an annual cycle (January 2009-January 2010)
Bars show 95% confidence intervals.
Comparative data on total cestode prevalence in both sexual Artemia spp
Data for the native A. salina (AS) and the invader A. franciscana (AF) when coexisting (mixed-populations, present study) and from monospecific populations or those with small numbers of diploid A. parthenogenetica (PD). When many data are available (e.g. for several months, years), the mean value of total prevalence and the range (in parentheses) are given.
