Since his doctoral studies at Leeds University he has maintained a special interest in the tapeworm, Ligula intestinalis, and its interactions with the reproductive systems of its fish host. In recognition of this work he was awarded a DSc from Keele University and a DSc honoris causa from the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava.
