Ecology and Evolution of Parasitism

Hosts to Ecosystems

Edited by Frédéric Thomas, Jean-François Guégan, and François Renaud

  • The first book to provide a broad synthesis of both the roles and consequences of pathogens on the ecology and evolution of free living systems
  • Focuses on hosts rather than the parasites themselves
  • Integrates those aspects related to the ecology and the evolution of free-living species (sexual selection, behaviour, life history traits, regulation of populations etc.) with topics related to ecosystems and ecology of infectious diseases
  • Includes examples across a range of scales from individuals to populations, communities and ecosystems
