    J Anim Ecol 76:703-10. 2007
    ..5. Our study shows that social and spatial aggregation favours sex-biased parasitism that could be a mere consequence of an active and adaptive parasite choice for the more profitable host...

    Nadia Bruyndonckx
    Centre for Ecological Sciences, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore 560012, India
    Behav Processes 72:100-3. 2006
    ..Here, we provide experimental evidence in support of the speculation, by reducing demand for food and showing that this results in a significant decrease in the frequency of dominance-subordinate interactions among the workers...
  3. doi request reprint Molecular cophylogenetic relationships between European bats and their ectoparasitic mites (Acari, Spinturnicidae)
    Nadia Bruyndonckx
    Department of Ecology and Evolution, University of Lausanne, CH 1015 Lausanne, Switzerland
    Mol Phylogenet Evol 51:227-37. 2009
    ..As currently understood, host associations of Spinturnicid mites likely results from a complex interaction between the phylogenetic history of the host and the behaviour and the ecology of both parasite and host...

    Nadia Bruyndonckx
    Department of Ecology and Evolution, University of Lausanne, CH 1015 Lausanne, Switzerland
    Mol Ecol 19:2770-8. 2010
    ..Parasites may thus act as biological tags to reveal the presence of their now locally extinct host...
