Agrochemicals increase trematode infections in a declining amphibian species
Global amphibian declines have often been attributed to disease, but ignorance of the relative importance and mode of action of potential drivers of infection has made it difficult to develop… Expand

Anthropogenic factors can have simultaneous positive and negative effects on parasite transmission, and thus it is important to quantify their net effects on disease risk. Net effects will be a… Expand
Evaluating the links between climate, disease spread, and amphibian declines

Human alteration of the environment has arguably propelled the Earth into its sixth mass extinction event and amphibians, the most threatened of all vertebrate taxa, are at the forefront. Many of the… Expand
Negative effects of changing temperature on amphibian immunity under field conditions
Summary 1Recent evidence of the important role of emerging diseases in amphibian population declines makes it increasingly important to understand how environmental changes affect amphibian immune… Expand
Disease and thermal acclimation in a more variable and unpredictable climate

Few studies have considered the effects of changes in climatic variability on disease incidence. Now research based on laboratory experiments and field data from Latin America shows that frog… Expand
Parasitism in a community context: trait-mediated interactions with competition and predation.
Predation and competition can induce important density- and trait-mediated effects on species, with implications for community stability. However, interactions of these factors with parasitism remain… Expand
Parasites, info-disruption, and the ecology of fear
There is growing interest in the ecological consequences of fear, as evidenced by the numerous studies on the nonconsumptive, trait-mediated effects of predators. Parasitism, however, has yet to be… Expand
Linking global climate and temperature variability to widespread amphibian declines putatively caused by disease
The role of global climate change in the decline of biodiversity and the emergence of infectious diseases remains controversial, and the effect of climatic variability, in particular, has largely… Expand
Parasites as predators: unifying natural enemy ecology.
Parasitism and predation have long been considered analogous interactions. Yet by and large, ecologists continue to study parasite-host and predator-prey ecology separately. Here we discuss strengths… Expand
Parasites prevent summer breeding in white-footed mice, Peromyscus leucopus.
Food and parasites can independently play a role in destabilizing population fluctuations of animals, and yet, more than 50 years ago, David Lack proposed that these two factors should act in… Expand
