  • Olstad, Kjetil (Doctoral thesis / Doktoravhandling, 2008)
    The two monogenean species G. salaris and G. thymalli, are almost identical at the nuclear molecular level. There is also no support from mtDNA (cox1) sequences for monophyly of all G. salaris or G. thymalli haplotypes. ...
  • Kopperud, Bjørn Tore; Lidgard, Scott; Liow, Lee Hsiang (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2019)

    Background The rather species-poor oviparous gyrodactylids are restricted to South America. It was suggested that they have a basal position within the otherwise viviparous Gyrodactylidae. Accordingly, it ...
  • Haugan, Reidar; Timdal, Einar (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    The two species Parmelia ernstiae and P. serrana are reported as new to Norway from two collections each, identified by the DNA barcode marker (nrITS). A chemical analysis of selected specimens of P. saxatilis s. lat. ...
