Contrasting parasite-mediated reductions in fitness within vs. between patches of a nematode host

Louis Thomas Bubrig, Anne Nicole Janisch, Emily Marie Tillet & Amanda Gibson
Host and parasites interact across spatial scales, but parasite-mediated fitness effects are often measured at local scales only. Recent work suggests that parasites can reduce host fitness during dispersal between patches, highlighting the potential for both within- and between-patch effects to contribute to the net fitness consequences of parasitism. Building on this work, we measured the contribution of the dispersal phase to parasite-mediated reductions in host fitness. We used the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans and its...
