Parasite diversity drives rapid host dynamics and evolution of resistance in a bacteria-phage system

Abstract:

Host-parasite evolutionary interactions are typically considered in a pairwise species framework. However, natural infections frequently involve multiple parasites. Altering parasite diversity alters ecological and evolutionary dynamics as parasites compete and hosts resist multiple infection. We investigated the effects of parasite diversity on host-parasite population dynamics and evolution using the pathogen P. aeruginosa and five lytic bacteriophage parasites. To manipulate parasite diver...
