    We have explored a large body of novel data focusing on small-scale temporal and spatial patterns in the composition and structure of larval trematode communities in Lymnaea stagnalis (L.) from a typical Central European agricultural landscape. The 5 eutrophic fishponds studied provide excellent environments for the development of species-rich and abundant trematode communities. 9 prevalent species were consistently present in component communities, but had differential contribution to the parasite flow. We put forward 3 hypotheses for the remarkable differences in larval trematode flow: (i) species-specific differences in parasite colonization potential displayed by an 'active-passive' dichotomy in miracidial transmission strategies of the species; (ii) top-down effects of pond context on transmission pathways of the trematodes; and (iii) competition as an important mechanism in eutrophic environments with a bottom-up effect on component community structure.
