Native fly parasites are the principal cause of nestlingmortality in endangered Tasmanian pardalotes
Established host–parasite interactions at an evolutionary equilibrium are not predicted to result in host population decline. However, parasites may become a major threat to host species weakened by other factors such as habitat degradation or loss of genetic diversity in small populations. We investigate an unusually virulent Tasmanian ectoparasite, Passeromyia longicornis, in its long‐term hosts, the endangered forty‐spotted pardalote (Pardalotus quadragintus) and striated pardalote...[Show more]
