Trematode infection causes malformations and population effects in a declining New Zealand fish



Trematode infection causes malformations and population effects in a declining New Zealand fish



Journal of Animal Ecology 79(2): 445-452



Animal malformations engender wide public and scientific concern because of associated environmental health risks. This is highlighted by increased incidence of limb malformations in amphibians associated with trematode infections and disturbance. Malformations may signal new emerging disease threats, but whether the phenomenon is broadly applicable across taxa, or has population-scale impacts, is unknown.
