Invasion and dynamics of covert infection strategies in structured insect-pathogen populations

Abstract:

1. Pathogens are known to cause horizontally transmitted overt (fully symptomatic) and vertically transmitted covert (asymptomatic) infections. Here, we explore a range of different covert infection strategies on the persistence and dynamics of insect host-pathogen interactions. 2. The three strategies we explore are (i) sublethal infections in which hosts survive initial infection but suffer costs on fecundity or development, (ii) persistent infections, which are transmitted vertically with ...
