|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:
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.|
Method step description:
- Individual taxa of the E. gadi and E. bothniensis complexes were identified using allozyme electophoresis.
