Forward stepwise discriminant function analysis (DFA) of the 4T samples indicated that abundances of the acanthocephalans Echinorhynchus gadi and Corynosoma strumosum were significant in the classification of plaice to western or eastern 4T.
Forward stepwise DFA of infection parameters of the remaining species revealed that abundances of the acanthocephalans Corynosoma strumosum and Echinorhynchus gadi contributed significantly to the classification of plaice from the southwestern and southeastern Gulf of St.
Echinorhynchus gadi infecting a relict population of Atlantic cod in Lake Mogil'noye, Russia, for example, recruit in the fall and die off in late summer and early fall of the following year (Kulachkova and Timofeyeva, 1993).
