“…Parasite conservation, as an applied discipline at the intersection of wildlife research and human health concerns, is in its infancy. Although parasite conservation is a topic of significant interest ( 11 , 23 ) and has been for at least two decades ( 46 , 47 ), most parasitic biodiversity is unrecorded in ecological databases. Our study, together with the release of PEARL and the associated data sets, offers a foundational framework for including parasites in conservation ecoinformatics and biogeography.…”

“…However, previous work has focused nearly exclusively on free-living biodiversity (especially vertebrates), and many important functional or taxonomic groups remain undescribed or are only now being included in extinction research ( 9 ). Particularly poorly profiled are commensalists, mutualists, and parasites ( 10 , 11 ), which should exhibit an atypically high extinction rate because of their dependence on other species for survival ( 12 ).…”

“…Para Herbst e Hanazaki (2014), é comum pescadores relatarem infecções parasitárias em peixes, tendo os autores obtido o relato de 58% dos entrevistados na região costeira de Santa Catarina. Os resultados obtidos para o Rio Jaguaripe demonstraram que, apesar dos parasitos de peixes serem considerados" componentes ocultos da biodiversidade" (LUQUE, 2008) e subestimados nas pesquisas acadêmicas (ROCHA et al, 2016), fazem parte da rotina dos pescadores, sendo por eles reconhecidos e interpretados, representando parte do conhecimento ecológico local.…”

“…Ceballos et al 2015) and many species will therefore be lost before their detection. Such never-to-beknown diversity is likely to be particularly high for parasites in part due to their hidden nature and systematic oversight in surveys and checklists of threatened fauna (Rocha et al 2016. However, it is also predicted that coextinction, the loss of one species as a result of extinction of a species it depends on, may be the most common form of species loss (Dunn et al 2009).…”
