1. Author(s): Bylund,Göran; Societas pro Fauna et Flora Fennica, Title(s): The taxonomic significance of embryonic hooks in four European Diphyllobothrium species (Cestoda, Diphyllobothriidae)/ Göran Bylund. Country of Publication: Finland Publisher: Helsinki: Societas pro Fauna et Flora Fennica, May Description: 22 pages: illustrations. Specific and distinct protein profiles were demonstrated by isoelectric focusing performed on soluble whole-body proteins of four Diphyllobothrium species. The protein patterns differed in number, position and relative density of the fractions by: Diphyllobothrium, also known as the "Broad Tapeworm" or "Fish Tapeworm," is a genus of Cestoda acquired through the consumption of undercooked fish, with as many as 14 species . Diphyllobothriosis and its causative agents have been reviewed in several outstanding publications (e.g., von Bonsdorff, , Dick, , Dick et al., ).Recently, Kuchta et al. (a) and Scholz et al. () summarized the basic information on broad fish tapeworms, with focus on the most notoriously known species such as Diphyllobothrium latum, D. nihonkaiense, D. dendriticum and.

Some taxa, such as many Lauraceae, have both sylleptic and proleptic shoots. Finally, all shoots on a plant may be the same, or there may be two or more kinds of shoots. These and other criteria are combined in various ways to produce an.

Morphological comparisons were made with European specimens of these two species and those of Diphyllobothrium latum (Linnaeus, ). Among the nine freshwater species reviewed, Diphyllobothrium cordiceps (Leidy, ), Diphyllobothrium sebago (Ward, ), and Diphyllobothrium ursi Rausch, , are considered synonyms of Diphyllobothrium. Many species in the genus Diphyllobothrium have been described since Linnaeus proposed Taenia lata as the first representative of this group. The taxonomic composition of the genus has changed many times, as have opinions on the validities of individual species (36, 72, ). ADVERTISEMENTS: Embryology in Taxonomy: Embryology is the study of the process of formation of embryo in a fertilised ovule, i.e., the study of the changes taking place in an ovule before and after the fertilisation. In other words, it is the study of: ADVERTISEMENTS: (a) Micro- and macro-sporogenesis in the diploid genera­tion, (b) Micro- and [ ].   Diphyllobothriasis is a fish-borne zoonotic infection with the cestode Diphyllobothrium latum (see the image below) or other similar species (eg, Diphyllobothrium nihonkaiense, Diphyllobothrium dendriticum, Adenocephalus pacificus, Diplogonoporus balanopterae).It is endemic in para-polar areas where humans consume raw or pickled fish.
