    ..Food webs are replete with similar symbiotic organisms, and we suspect the predator catalyst mechanism is capable of generating blooms for other endosymbiont-targeting viruses. ..

    ..The stabilizing effect of intermediate interference therefore appears to be roughly constant across size, while the effect of body size on population dynamics is mediated through other parameters. ..

    ..Moreover, our results suggest that the temperature dependence of metabolic rate is more complex than previously suggested. ..
