Project Data

No Description available

Title The systematics of Echinorhynchus Zoega in Müller, 1776 (Acanthocephala: Echinorhynchidae) elucidated by nuclear and mitochondrial sequence data from eight European taxa
Funding Natural Environment Research Council CASE studentship
Study Area Description Fresh and marine waters of northern Europe.
Design Description In order to gain insight into the zoogeography of Echinorhynchus, samples were selected to include taxa from a range of aquatic environments, including: both lotic and lentic freshwaters, coastal marine waters and the deep-sea.

The personnel involved in the project:

Principal Investigator
Matthew Wayland

Sampling Methods

All acanthocephalans were washed in saline and then fixed in 90-100% alcohol immediately after collection, or alternatively frozen in liquid nitrogen and stored at -80ºC.

Study Extent Fresh and marine waters of northern Europe.
Step Description 1 Individual taxa of the E. gadi and E. bothniensis complexes were identified using allozyme electophoresis.
