A model of host—parasite coevolution is analysed. A host resistance trait and a parasite virulence trait interact to determine the outcome of a parasitic attack, where each trait is determined by quantitative genetic variation. The resistance and virulence traits are assumed to have a fitness cost. Each host and parasite genotype is treated as a separate ‘species’ in a multidimensional Lotka—Volterra system in which the numerical abundance of each genotype is free to change. Thus, the… CONTINUE READING
