Abstract

In addition to their lethal effects, pathogens can cause a number of other debilitating effects on infected hosts. A population dynamical model of the interaction between an invertebrate host and a pathogen is constructed to examine the importance of one such debilitating effect on the host population dynamics. Specifically the feeding rate and therefore… (More)
