The Wadden Sea is a hotspot of parasite diversity. The myriads of birds, fishes and invertebrates living in the Wadden Sea serve as hosts for various parasitic groups. Parasites can directly affect the fitness of their hosts but they can also have a multitude of indirect effects on local communities and entire food webs.
