A correlated response of a parasite's virulence and life cycle to selection on its host's life history

A correlated response of a parasite's virulence and life cycle to selection on its host's life history

Journal of Evolutionary Biology 12(1): 70-79

A correlated response of the virulence and the mode of transmission of Edhazardia aedis to selection on the age at pupation of its host, Aedes aegypti was demonstrated. 3 lines of mosquitoes were selected each, for early or late pupation and the larvae exposed after 0, 2 and 4 generations of selection to a low and a high concentration of the parasite's spores.
