Amphipod disease: model systems, invasions and systematics


Over 10,000 amphipod species are known around the globe from freshwater, marine and terrestrial habitats, making them one of the most diverse crustacean groups. Amphipods often feature as nutrient recyclers and prey species, thus being crucial supporters of ecosystems and their inhabitants. In addition, many amphipods are readily available model organisms for studying crustacean development, invasion dynamics, ecotoxicology, and disease, and recent evidence suggests that amphipods are parasitized by some unique symbionts, whose taxonomy remains intriguing and unexplored.

Like most organisms, amphipods suffer from diseases that can alter the availability and dynamics of certain ecosystem services, and affect their performance as model organisms. However, despite the important role of many amphipods in ecosystems and scientific research, studies aimed at furthering our understanding of amphipod diseases are sparse.

This Special Issue expands our knowledge about amphipod diseases by exploring how amphipod models can be used to research the dynamics of disease effects (e.g. in biological invasions, ecotoxicology, and epidemiology) and as a source for the discovery of novel and ancient lineages of parasites.
