The dynamics of parasite incidence across host species

Abstract

Whilst it is well known that many parasites occasionally switch from one host species to another and thus spread within a host clade, the patterns of spread and the observed heterogeneity in parasite incidence between host taxa are not well understood. Here, we develop a simple stochastic model as a first attempt to understand these ‘incidence dynamics… (More)
