- Impacts of agriculture on the parasite communities of northern leopard frogs (Rana pipiens) in southern Quebec, CanadaK C King
Department of Biology, Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada H3G 1M8
Parasitology 134:2063-80. 2007..Community composition was associated with dissolved organic carbon and conductivity, but few links were found with pesticides. Pollution effects may be masked by a strong impact of land use on parasite transmission...
- Short-term seasonal changes in parasite community structure in northern leopard froglets (Rana pipiens) inhabiting agricultural wetlandsKayla C King
Department of Biology, Concordia University, 1455 De Maisonneuve Blvd W, Montreal, Quebec H3G 1M8, Canada
J Parasitol 94:13-22. 2008..Our results suggest that agricultural activity may further facilitate the transmission of monoxenous nematodes as frogs become more terrestrial...
- The geographic mosaic of sex and the Red QueenKayla C King
Department of Biology, Indiana University, 1001 East Third Street, Bloomington, IN 47405 3700, USA
Curr Biol 19:1438-41. 2009..The results also support the Red Queen hypothesis, in that sex is associated with coevolutionary hot spots for virulent parasites...
- Trematode parasites infect or die in snail hostsKayla C King
Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN 47405, USA
Biol Lett 7:265-8. 2011..Our results show that parasites do not get a second chance: they either infect or are killed by the host. The results suggest strong selection against parasites that are not adapted to local host genotypes...
- Parasites, sex, and clonal diversity in natural snail populationsKayla C King
Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana 47401 3700, USA
Evolution 65:1474-81. 2011..Our findings thus highlight the importance of parasites as drivers of clonal diversity, as well as sex...
- The geographic mosaic of sex and infection in lake populations of a New Zealand snail at multiple spatial scalesDaniela Vergara
Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana 47405
Am Nat 182:484-93. 2013..Our results thus suggest that parasite-mediated selection contributes to the long-term coexistence of sexual and asexual individuals in coevolutionary hotspots, and that the "warmth" of hotspots can vary on small spatial scales...
