There is good physiological documentation of the survival of parasites (generally the ‘off-host’ stages) in environments that would be considered hostile to life and characterized by freezing, ... More


Parasitism, biodiversity, and conservation

Frédéric Thomas, Michael B. Bonsall, and Andy P. Dobson

in Parasitism and Ecosystems

Published in print:
2005

Subject:
Biology, Disease Ecology / Epidemiology

Parasites are thought to have a key role in determining the structure of animal communities. Most of the evidence for this is based on how different host species vary in their susceptibility to ... More


Subverting hosts and diverting ecosystems: an evolutionary modelling perspective

Sam P. Brown, Jean-Baptiste André, Jean-Baptiste Ferdy, and Bernard Godelle

in Parasitism and Ecosystems

Published in print:
2005

DOI:
10.1093/acprof:oso/9780198529873.003.0010
Subject:
Biology, Disease Ecology / Epidemiology

This chapter argues that parasite-induced changes in host phenotypes can have a dramatic impact on the community structure of their free-living hosts. It begins with a review of host-manipulation ... More
