Coevolutionary hotspots and coldspots for host sex and parasite local adaptation in a snail-trematode interaction

Abstract:

Reciprocal adaptation between interacting species may occur in some regions (coevolutionary 'hotspots') and not others ('coldspots'). In a previous study, we found hotspots and coldspots along a continuous depth gradient in two different New Zealand lakes. Specifically, we found that Microphallus sp. trematodes were locally adapted to Potamopyrgus antipodarum snails collected from shallow-water margins of the lakes, but not to snails collected from deep-water habitats. As sexual snails were m...
