Data from: Metazoan parasites of African annual killifish (Nothobranchiidae): abundance, diversity, and their environmental correlates

Veronika Nezhybová, Martin Reichard, Radim Blažek & Markéta Ondračková.
Estimates of biodiversity and its global patterns are affected by parasite richness and specificity. Despite this, parasite communities are largely neglected in biodiversity estimates, especially in the tropics. We studied the parasites of annual killifish of the genus Nothobranchius that inhabit annually desiccating pools across the African savannah and survive the dry period as developmentally arrested embryos. Their discontinuous, non-overlapping generations make them a unique organism in which to study natural parasite fauna. We investigated...
