We investigated the effects of temperature on transovarial transmission and feminisation by Nosema granulosis, a microsporidian sex ratio distorter of the brackish water amphipod Gammarus duebeni. There was no difference in parasite transmission efficiency to the F(1) eggs of infected females maintained under two temperature conditions, 5 and 10 degrees C (89 and 86%, respectively). When F(1) individuals were screened as adults, the proportion infected was also similar at both temperatures (74… CONTINUE READING
