‘We quantified the biomass of free-living and parasitic species in three estuaries and discovered that parasites have substantial biomass in these ecosystems,’said Armand Kuris, a zoologist at the University of California at Santa Barbara , and a lead author of the paper. ‘Parasites as much or even more, biomass important important groups of animals – such as birds, fish and crabs,’said Ryan Hechinger, a marine researcher at UCSB and co-lead author of the paper.. Until now scientists have believed that because parasites are microscopic in size, it is a small portion the biomass in a habitat, while free-living organisms such as fish, birds and other predators make up the vast majority.
