Life history determines genetic structure and evolutionary potential of host-parasite interactions

Barrett, Luke; Thrall, P; Burdon, Jeremy J.; Linde, Celeste

Description

Measures of population genetic structure and diversity of disease-causing organisms are commonly used to draw inferences regarding their evolutionary history and potential to generate new variation in traits that determine interactions with their hosts. Parasite species exhibit a range of population structures and life-history strategies, including different transmission modes, life-cycle complexity, off-host survival mechanisms and dispersal ability. These are important determinants of the...[Show more]
