Parasites

Parasites

Parasites are among the most common organisms on the planet, and represent diverse members of all biological communities. Parasites tie communities together, revealing or telling stories about critical connections established by a history of evolution, ecology (food habits, foraging behavior, interactions among host species) and biogeography (patterns of geographic distribution) for host populations, species, ecosystems and regional faunas that constitute the biosphere. As such these organisms tell us about the processes, biological (e.g. range shifts, invasion) and physical (e.g. climate variation), that have
determined the patterns of diversity that we observe in high latitude ecosystems. (Arctic Biodiversity Assessment 2013.)
