Data from: Abiotic environmental variation drives virulence evolution in a fish host-parasite geographic mosaic

Muayad A. Mahmud, Jannette E. Bradley, Andrew D. C. MacColl & Janette E. Bradley
1.Parasite virulence varies greatly. Theory predicts that this arises from parasites optimising a trade-off between the mortality they inflict on current hosts, and their transmission to future hosts. The effect of the environment on this coevolution is rarely considered. 2.Geographic mosaics are fertile systems for studying coevolution, but again, the diversity of outcomes is often assumed to result from co-evolutionary dynamism, rather than being moulded by the environment. 3.Here we quantify variation in virulence among...
