Data from: Duration of the parasitic phase determines subsequent performance in juvenile freshwater pearl mussels (Margaritifera margaritifera)

Janhavi Marwaha, Knut Helge Jensen, Per Johan Jakobsen & Juergen Geist
Host–parasite systems have been useful in understanding coevolutionary patterns in sympatric species. Based on the exceptional interaction of the long-lived and highly host-specific freshwater pearl mussel (FPM; Margaritifera margaritifera) with its much shorter-lived host fish (Salmo trutta or Salmo salar), we tested the hypotheses that a longer duration of the parasitic phase increases fitness-related performance of mussels in their subsequent post parasitic phase, and that temperature is the main factor governing the duration of the...
