The epidemiology underlying age-related avian malaria infection in a long-lived host: The mute swan Cygnus olor

Abstract:

Quantifying the factors that predict parasite outbreak and persistence is a major challenge for both applied and fundamental biology. Key to understanding parasite prevalence and disease outbreaks is determining at what age individuals show signs of infection, and whether or not they recover. Age-dependent patterns of the infection of a host population by parasites can indicate among-individual heterogeneities in their susceptibility to, or rate of recovery from, parasite infections. Here, we...
