Data from: Age-related parasite load and longevity patterns in the sedge warbler Acrocephalus schoenobaenus

Wojciech Bielański, Aleksandra Biedrzycka, Tadeusz Zając, Adam Ćmiel & Wojciech Solarz
We report the results from a nine-year study on parasite infection in males of a small migrant passerine, the sedge warbler Acrocephalus schoenobaenus. Every year, for each male caught during territory establishment we estimated infection intensity of two lineages of Haemoproteus belopolskyi (SW1 and SW3), using molecular methods. We found a significant relationship between infection intensity and males’ longevity in both studied lineages. There was severe mortality of second-year sedge warblers after their first breeding...
