Trade-off between parasitoid resistance and larval competitive ability in Drosophila melanogaster

  title={Trade-off between parasitoid resistance and larval competitive ability in Drosophila melanogaster},
  author={Alex R. Kraaijeveld and H Charles J Godfray},
The extent to which an organism is selected to invest in defences against pathogens and parasites depends on the advantages that ensue should infection occur, but also on the costs of maintaining defences in the absence of infection. The presence of heritable variation in resistance suggests that costs exist, but we know very little about the nature or magnitude of these costs in natural populations of animals. A powerful technique for identifying trade-offs between fitness components is the… CONTINUE READING
