Population dynamics of bothriocephalus claviceps goeze 1782 cestoda pseudophyllidae a parasite of the eel anguilla anguilla l. in the camargue france



Vie et Milieu 37(2): 123-132



This study concerns the adult population of Botriocephalus claviceps (Cestoda, Pseudophyllidea), a parsite of eel (Anguilla anguilla) in the Fumemorte canal (Camargue). The host population is homogeneous with respect to size and sex-ratio. The distribution of parasites in the hosts is independent of their size and follows an overdispersion mode because of the clustered emission of eggs. The springtime resumption of the cycle is marked by the growth of the parasite population, the attainment of sexual maturity and by recruitment. A new sexual maturity is sometimes achieved secondarily at the end of the summer in the most precocious individuals. The observation of natural and experimental infrapopulation suggests the existence of competition taking part in the regulation of the population. Nevertheless, the climatic factor plays a dominant role in the demography of this parasite.
