In the blood, the synchronous malaria parasite, Plasmodium chabaudi, exhibits a cell-cycle rhythm of approximately 24 hours in which transitions between developmental stages occur at particular times of day in the rodent host. Previous experiments reveal that when the timing of the parasite’s cell-cycle rhythm is perturbed relative to the circadian rhythm(More)
The 24-h day involves cycles in environmental factors that impact organismal fitness. This is thought to select for organisms to regulate their temporal biology accordingly, through circadian and diel rhythms. In addition to rhythms in abiotic factors (such as light and temperature), biotic factors, including ecological interactions, also follow daily(More)
Correction Some of the data in the article [1] were inadvertently mis-labelled. Specifically, for infections initiated with tropho-zoite stage parasites, the schedule " matched " treatment group was incorrectly analysed as " mismatched " and vice-versa. The data have been re-analysed and the effects of perturbing the schedules of parasites relative to the(More)
