Disease hotspots or hot species? Infection dynamics in multi-host metacommunities controlled by species identity, not source location

Mark Wilber, Pieter Johnson & Cheryl Briggs
Pathogen persistence in host communities is influenced by processes operating at the individual host to landscape-level scale, but isolating the relative contributions of these processes is challenging. We developed theory to partition the influence of host species, habitat patches, and landscape connectivity on pathogen persistence within metacommunities of hosts and pathogens. We used this framework to quantify the contributions of host species composition and habitat patch identity on the persistence of an amphibian pathogen across...
