Sex ratio and virulence in two species of lizard malaria parasites

Abstract:

Evolutionary theory predicts that both the virulence and the sex ratio of a parasite can depend upon its population structure, and be positively correlated. With only one or a low number of strains within a host, a low sex ratio and a relatively low virulence are predicted. With high numbers of strains within a host, a more even sex ratio and a high parasite virulence are predicted. We examined gametocyte sex ratio and a possible correlate of virulence, parasite density (parasitaemia), in nat...
