Description Gill monogeneans exhibiting the high host specificity to their fish hosts are powerful models to investigate host-parasite coevolution. However, the knowledge on monogenean diversity, crucial for ecological and evolutionary studies, are still currently underestimated in many freshwater fish groups. I focused on data analyses using three models of monogeneans-freshwater fish in order to summarize the knowledge on monogenean diversity in the host-parasite systems selected, to test phylogenetic hypotheses and to perform the cophylogenetic analyses in order to infer the coevolutionary processes in the following host-parasite systems.
