Cultural vectors, virulence, and the emergence of evolutionary epidemiology

Cultural vectors, virulence, and the emergence of evolutionary epidemiology

Oxford Surveys in Evolutionary Biology 5: 215-245

The evolution of pathogen and/or parasite virulence is investigated using the comparative method. Modes of transmission that should favour virulent genotypes are predicted on the basis of fitness costs and benefits associated with virulence. These predictions are then tested by comparison with actual trends extracted from public health and agricultural literature.
