...Arka Pal; Mihir Joshi; Maria Thaker ABSTRACT Elaborate sexual signals are thought to have evolved and be maintained to serve as honest indicators of signaller quality. One measure of quality is health, which can be affected by parasite infection. Cnemaspis mysoriensis is a diurnal gecko...

... indirectly through measures of performance. Our results show that inter-individual variation in field behaviors can be related to performance ability, which in turn reflect differences in morphology and physiology, although not parasite load. Given the low repeatability of field behaviors, some...

...Qingxiang Gu; Yang Liu; Yanhua Zhai; Zemao Gu ABSTRACT Disassembling parasitic spores and acquiring the main subunits for analysis is a prerequisite for a deep understanding of the basic biology of parasites. Herein, we present a fast and efficient method to dissect myxospores in a few steps, which...

... high and extreme levels of risk caused immunological changes, suggesting that different immunological parameters are modulated according to the perceived level of threat. We also found a mediator role of parasites (i.e. Leucocytozoon ) and the current health status of the individual, as only nestlings...

...Cédric Alaux; Didier Crauser; Maryline Pioz; Cyril Saulnier; Yves Le Conte Host–parasite interactions are often characterized by changes in the host behaviour, which are beneficial to either the parasite or the host, or are a non-adaptive byproduct of parasitism. These interactions are further...

... during breeding and post-breeding periods. NAb concentrations increased in nestlings and adult females breeding in flea-infested nest boxes during the nestling provisioning period, but not in breeding females during incubation. In contrast, parasite abundance did not affect levels of complement activity...

...Deborah M. Kristan SUMMARY Sublethal parasites are often assumed to have no detrimental effects on their host. However, the sublethal intestinal nematode Heligmosomoides polygyrus affects both the morphology and the physiology of its laboratory mouse ( Mus musculus ) host and therefore has...

The objectives of the present study were to determine (1) whether pups infected with parasites at weaning grew differently and had a different body composition at adulthood compared with uninfected pups, (2) whether offspring from parasitized mothers grew differently and had a different body...
