Relative geographic range of sibling species of host damselflies does not reliably predict differential parasitism by water mites

Abstract

One of the main challenges in evolutionary parasitology is to determine the factors that explain variation among host species in parasitism. In this study, we addressed whether host phylogeny or ecology was important in determining host species use by water mites. Parasitism (prevalence and intensity) by Arrenurus water mites was examined in relation to… (More)
