- Intraspecific competition and the evolution of virulence in a parasitic trematodeCharlotte M Gower
Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, South Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3SY, United Kingdom
Evolution 59:544-53. 2005..Moreover, since the less virulent strain investigated here had a competitive advantage, we suggest that a high frequency of multiple infections could favor the evolution of less, rather than more, virulent parasites in this system...
- Population genetics of multi-host parasites--the case for molecular epidemiological studies of Schistosoma japonicum using larval stages from naturally infected hostsJ Shrivastava
Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College St Mary s Hospital Campus, Norfolk Place, London W2 1PG, UK
Parasitology 131:617-26. 2005..Our results thus advocate the use of natural life-cycle stages to obtain an accurate and ethical representation of the population genetic structure of S. japonicum and other multi-host pathogens...
