  • Abstract Many taxa of parasites modify the behavior of their hosts in ways that improve their probability of transmission. Regardless of its evolutionary origins or underlying mechanisms, host manipulation is a widespread adaptive strategy yielding fitness benefits for parasites with various life cycles and transmission modes. This chapter focuses on recent developments that are expanding our understanding of this phenomenon. Currently, growing attention is being paid to the effect of parasites… CONTINUE READING
