  • Host resistance to parasites can come in two main forms: hosts may either reduce the probability of parasite infection (anti‐infection resistance) or reduce parasite growth after infection has occurred (anti‐growth resistance). Both resistance mechanisms are often imperfect, meaning that they do not fully prevent or clear infections. Theoretical work has suggested that imperfect anti‐growth resistance can select for higher parasite virulence by favouring faster‐growing and more virulent… CONTINUE READING
