  1. Fellous S. Positive correlation between hemosporidian parasitemia and likelihood of PCR detection in co-infected birds. J Parasitol. 2009;95:472-3 pubmed publisher
  2. Fellous S, Salvaudon L. How can your parasites become your allies?. Trends Parasitol. 2009;25:62-6 pubmed publisher
    ..Furthermore, we underline how evolved dependence--the host's loss of ability to live alone owing to a long history of evolution in the presence of its parasites--has shaped contemporary mutualistic relationships. ..
  3. Fellous S, Duncan A, Coulon A, Kaltz O. Quorum sensing and density-dependent dispersal in an aquatic model system. PLoS ONE. 2012;7:e48436 pubmed publisher
    ..This type of quorum sensing may be an adaptation optimizing small scale monitoring of the environment and swarm formation in open water. ..
  4. Fellous S, Koella J. Different transmission strategies of a parasite in male and female hosts. J Evol Biol. 2009;22:582-8 pubmed publisher
    ..Our results emphasize the complexity underlying the development of parasites and show their ability to tune their strategy to their environment. ..
  5. Fellous S, Koella J. Infectious dose affects the outcome of the within-host competition between parasites. Am Nat. 2009;173:E177-84 pubmed publisher
    ..Since dose increases with a parasite's prevalence, such dose effects could lead to an epidemiological feedback that ultimately eliminates one of the parasites. ..
  6. Fellous S, Lazzaro B. Larval food quality affects adult (but not larval) immune gene expression independent of effects on general condition. Mol Ecol. 2010;19:1462-8 pubmed publisher
    ..We conclude that the nutritional environment of insect larvae can affect adult immunity by influencing plastic allocation of resources. These influences are less predictable than constraints linked to general condition would be. ..
  7. Fellous S, Quillery E, Duncan A, Kaltz O. Parasitic infection reduces dispersal of ciliate host. Biol Lett. 2011;7:327-9 pubmed publisher
    ..Parasite-induced modification of dispersal may have consequences for the spatial distribution of disease, host and parasite genetic population structure, and coevolution. ..
