Host specificity is predicted to shape patterns of parasite gene flow between host species; specialist parasites should have low gene flow between host species, while generalists are predicted to have high gene flow between species. However, even for generalist parasites external forces, including ecological differences between host species may sometimes intervene to limit gene flow and create genetic structure. To investigate the potential for cryptic parasite genetic structure to arise under… CONTINUE READING
