Friendly foes: the evolution of host protection by a parasite

Abstract:

Hosts are often infected by multiple parasite species, yet the ecological and evolutionary implications of the interactions between hosts and coinfecting parasites are largely unknown. Most theoretical models of evolution among coinfecting parasites focus on the evolution of virulence, but parasites may also evolve to protect their hosts by reducing susceptibility (i.e., conferring resistance) to other parasites or reducing the virulence of coinfecting parasites (i.e., conferring tolerance). ...
