Stable isotopes unravel the feeding mode-trophic position relationship in trematode parasites

Amandine Sabadel & Colin MacLeod
1. Stable isotopes have been sporadically used over the last two decades to characterise host-parasite trophic relationships. The main reason for this scarcity is the lack of an obvious pattern in the ratio of nitrogen stable isotope values (δ15N) of parasites in comparison to their host tissues, which would be key to understand any host-parasite system dynamics. 2. To circumvent this, we focused on a single snail host, Zeacumantus subcarinatus, and three of its trematode...
