For example, it was not discovered until the 1980s that the parasite Myxoholus cerehralis responsible for whirling disease in salmonids requires a tubificid
oligochaete to complete its lifecycle (Markow 1992).
Short-term toxicity of lindane, hexachlorobenzene, and copper sulfate on Tubificid
sludgeworms (Oligochaeta) in artificial media.
This species occurs in a wide variety of surface water habitats, being perhaps the most omnipresent and commonly collected freshwater tubificid
worldwide (Naveed 2012).
On the role of tubificid
oligochaetes in relation to fish disease with special reference to the Myxozoa.
worms influence the fate of organic matter and pollutants in stormwater sediments?
The fishes were provided in equal ratio of tubificid
worms, chironomid and mosquito larvae ad libitum as food and 30 L of water was changed every other day.
Modifications in sampling procedures as applied to studies on the bacteria and tubificid
oligochetes inhabiting aquatic sediments.
Interspecific interactions and selective feeding of tubificid
Reynolds and Cook (1976), confusing the generic names Ilyogenia and Ilyodrilus, placed it in the tubificid
genus, adding uncertainty to the species' origin and its identity.
Some naids, especially tubificid
oligochaetes, have been shown to be tolerant to siltation (Lenat et al., 1981).
Sexually mature tubificid
earthworms were identified to species level; other organisms were identified to family or genus level.
