    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...

    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...

    Kayla 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...

    Kayla 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...

    Kayla 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...

    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. ..
