The Relationship of Within-Host Multiplication and Virulence in a Plant-Virus System

Abstract

BACKGROUND Virulence does not represent any obvious advantage to parasites. Most models of virulence evolution assume that virulence is an unavoidable consequence of within-host multiplication of parasites, resulting in trade-offs between within-host multiplication and between-host transmission fitness components. Experimental support for the central… (More)
