Evolution and phylogeny of behavioural manipulation of insect hosts by parasites.
TLDR
Experimental and phylogenetic approaches can provide valuable insights into the evolutionary history of insect-parasite interactions and identify adaptive changes in behavior on a phylogeny of either hosts or parasites.
Effects of parasites on fish behaviour: a review and evolutionary perspective
TLDR
Little conclusive evidence is found for the Parasite Increased Trophic Transmission (PITT) hypothesis in fishes, though recent studies suggest it is likely to be an important mechanism, and a case study is provided to summarise the current state of knowledge.
Manipulation of bird behavior by parasites
TLDR
It is suggested that more is learned about parasite- host interactions by quantifying the evolutionary interests of hosts and their multitude of parasites, amensals and commen- sals, and that host behavior may more readily be understood from the point of view of the participants involved in these different interspecific interactions.
Modification of hosts' behavior by a parasite: field evidence for adaptive manipulation.
TLDR
The results indicate that the modifications induced by P. laevis are specific to the definitive host and do not increase the risk of predation by inappropriate hosts, here the adult edible frog Rana esculenta.

Can Parasites Change Thermal Preferences of Hosts
TLDR
It is convinced that research on the mechanism of thermal preferences of ectothermic animals in terms of physiology, metabolism, neuromodulation, and immunology will clarify the suggested impact of parasites on thermal behavior of their hosts.
Host manipulation by parasites: a multidimensional phenomenon
TLDR
The multidimensionality of host manipulation by parasites is reviewed, its possible signifi cance and evolution are discussed, and a series of testable hypotheses regarding the ecology of parasitized hosts are proposed.
Parasite Manipulation of Host Behavior: An Update and Frequently Asked Questions
Bird and amphipod parasites illustrate a gradient from adaptation to exaptation in complex life cycle
TLDR
An example of an exaptation, taken together with examples of adaptations in closely related host–parasite associations, improves the understanding of the evolutionary genesis of parasites' transmission strategies.

Parasite manipulation of host behaviour: should hosts always lose?
TLDR
Conditional opposition to the influence of parasites would be a better alternative to resistance to infection itself if resistance is costly, and would explain the considerable variability often observed in the behavioural responses of parasitiaed hosts.
The evolution of parasite manipulation of host behaviour: a theoretical analysis.
TLDR
This evolutionary analysis indicates that ecological and life history variables may have played an important role in the evolution of manipulation of host behaviour by parasites.
The Population Biology of Parasite-Induced Changes in Host Behavior

TLDR
Analysis of simple mathematical models for the population dynamic consequences of parasite behavior suggests that both asexual reproduction of the parasite within a host and parasite-induced reduction in host fecundity may be stabilizing mechanisms when they occur in the intermediate hosts of parasite species with indirect life cycles.
EVOLUTIONARY PATTERNS OF ALTERED BEHAVIOR AND SUSCEPTIBILITY IN PARASITIZED HOSTS
TLDR
Changes in the behavioral responses of hosts to parasites and, to a lesser extent, changes in susceptibility are more frequent than cockroach speciation events in different cockroach lineages, which strengthens the assertion that at least some of the altered behaviors are adaptive for host and/or parasite.
Altered Behavioral Responses in Intermediate Hosts -- An Acanthoceptalan Parasite Strategy
TLDR
The host suicide hypothesis is examined, in the light of recent discoveries about parasite-host relationships in the phylum Acanthocephala, about modified behavior of hosts with multihost parasites.
Physiological bases for parasite-induced alterations of host behaviour.
TLDR
This work addresses how parasite-host physiological and behavioural interactions may be altered during the course of parasitism, and considers the adaptiveness of these responses and how the behavioural patterns elicited may simultaneously appear adaptive for the parasite as well as the host.
Ethological Aspects of Parasite Transmission
In parasitic life cycles, transmission events, that is, the passage of a parasite from an "upstream" host to a "downstream" host, often involve behavioral adaptations that result in an increase of
Experimental demonstration of the energetic cost of parasitism in free-ranging hosts
TLDR
The results demonstrate that even classically ‘benign’ parasites such as feather lice can reduce host condition through the accumulation of subtle energetic costs over time, and argues that experimental manipulations are a prerequisite for documenting such effects.
Host life-history variation in response to parasitism
TLDR
This paper will only consider parasites whose ‘unfavourable impact’ adversely affects the birth and/or mortality rates of their hosts and ignores intraspecific genetic variation present within both host and parasite populations.
Behavioral Interactions between Parasites and Hosts: Host Suicide and the Evolution of Complex Life Cycles
TLDR
The similarity between host suicide and the passage of group 4 parasites from intermediate hosts to definitive hosts is noted, and the possible role of host suicide in the evolution of such complex parasitic life cycles is examined.
