Infection burdens and virulence under heat stress: ecological and evolutionary considerations

Abstract:

As a result of global change, hosts and parasites (incl. pathogens) are experiencing shifts in their thermal environment. Despite the importance of heat stress resistance for host population persistence, infection by parasites can impair a host’s ability to cope with heat. Host-parasite eco-evolutionary dynamics will be affected if infection reduces host performance during heating. Theory predicts that within-host parasite burden (replication rate or number of infecting parasites/host), a key...
