Public Talk – Emeritus Professor Lesley Warner

1 October @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Parasites: the silent majority.

The world’s biota probably includes more parasitic than non-parasitic species.

Analyses of biodiversity have indicated that

although more species of insect have been described and more are awaiting description than for any other group,

each of  those species will host at least 1 species of nematode as well as other ecto and endo parasites.

As shown in a case study of wombat nematodes, parasites have important roles to play within ecosystems and have evolutionary value.
