The parasites are being recognized and are considered important in scientific studies, however, parasitic biodiversity is of great importance because parasitism is relevant in ecosystems. From the richness of species and the taxonomic distinction of a community of parasites the parasitic diversity can be verified. With the statistical analyzes it can be verified which species of hosts that are closely related, are capable of harboring similar number of parasite species, in the same way it is possible that the species of parasites present taxonomic similarities. Some authors have analyzed correlations between parasite diversity and various host characteristics, using species richness as a measure of the diversity of parasitic communities. Another important factor is the identification of general ecological laws that become fundamental to environmental and conservation issues. The objective of this project is to acquire new knowledge related to ecology to carry out the quantitative study of the metazoan parasites of Rhamdia quelen (QUOY & GAIMARD, 1824) and Pimelodus maculatus (LACEPÈDE, 1803).
