Unfortunately, the original version of this article [1] contains an error. In the section entitled “Influence of anthropogenic disruption on parasitic nematode population genetics”, the passage

  • “Population genetic studies have revealed multiple, distinct lineages of invasive A. crassus, suggesting multiple introduction events from different source populations [149, 150]. Furthermore, a southern to northern clinal decrease in its genetic diversity is seen in Europe, suggesting that A. crassus was introduced in southern Europe and has since spread northwards [150].”

should read

  • “Population genetic studies have revealed multiple, distinct lineages of invasive A. crassus in North America versus Europe, suggesting introductions from different source populations [149, 150]. Furthermore, a northern to southern clinal decrease in its genetic diversity is seen in Europe, suggesting that A. crassus was introduced in northern Europe and has since spread southwards [150].”

The authors apologize for the inconvenience caused.
