Comments Dr. Blend's interest is Deep-Sea Parasitology. Specifically, the taxonomy & morphological systematics, evolutionary biology, ecology, and zoogeography of parasitic helminths (digeneans [main focus], cestodes, monogeneans, acanthocephalans, and nematodes) infecting a wide variety of deepwater organisms in general, and parasitizing fish in particular. I also have interests in the parasites of deep-sea chemosynthetic environments (e.g., hydrothermal vents, cold seeps, OMZs, whale & kelp falls, etc.). I would like to eventually be able to use submersibles in the exploration of chemosynthetic parasitic life and move deeper in the ocean to explore the parasites that exist in the abyssal and even hadal (trench) depths.
Since 2007
