    A wide variety of parasites are known to cause changes in host behaviour. The altered behaviours range from simple changes in features such as activity and phototaxis, to the creation of behaviours that are new, and often ...
  • Stumbo, Anthony D (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological Sciences, c2012Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2012)
    Natural selection should favour host defenses that reduce a host’s exposure to parasites or reduce their negative effects. One strategy that resolves the substantial costs of host immunity and/or tolerance is to avoid ...
  • Schleppe, Jason L.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2002Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2002)
    The population dynamics and life histories of two larval parasites of fathead minnows were investigated, together with their effects on host reproduction in natural populations. In two lakes in northern Alberta, Canada, ...
  • Sandland, Gregory J.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 1999Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 1999)
    Determining the extent to which parasites influence natural populaions of hosts is a major focus of studies in parasitology. Addressing this issue requires host-parasite systems that can be monitored under natural conditions ...
