Abstract The laboratory hydra-hydramoeba system provides a versatile experimental analog for studies of factors controlling epizootics. In a previous investigation involving small host numbers the relationship between instantaneous infection rate and host density was not clear; hence, the experiments in this study were designed to elucidate the significance of an increased host population space and host numbers on this relationship. Two levels of population space (one 2.8 times the other) and… CONTINUE READING
