Testing for deterministic succession in metazoan parasite communities of marine fish

Marcelo Oliva, Juan Espinola-Novelo, Maria Gonzalez, Aldo Pacheco & Jose Luque
Parasite communities are similar to free-living communities; decay of similarity over geographic distance, theory of island biogeography, species-area relationships and nestedness have been documented in both communities. Ecological succession has been studied in free-living communities but has rarely been examined in parasite communities. We use seriation with replication to test the hypothesis that succession of parasite community structure is deterministic, thus developing throughout consecutive changes along the fish ontogeny, via a seriated pattern. 12,306 marine...
