Possible mechanism of host manipulation resulting from a diel behaviour pattern of eye-dwelling parasites?

Abstract

Parasitic infection often results in alterations to the host's phenotype, and may modify selection pressures for host populations. Elucidating the mechanisms underlying these changes is essential to understand the evolution of host-parasite interactions. A variety of mechanisms may result in changes in the host's behavioural phenotype, ranging from simple… (More)
