Data from: Host genotype and environment affect the trade-off between horizontal and vertical transmission of the parasite Edhazardia aedis

Giacomo Zilio, Kevin Thiévent & Jacob C. Koella
Background: If a parasite is able to transmit horizontally or vertically, which transmission mode will it choose? We investigated how the growth conditions and the genotype of the mosquito Aedes aegypti affect the transmission mode of the parasite Edhazardia aedis. Results: In poor conditions the parasites were more likely to be transmitted horizontally, whereas in favourable conditions they were more likely to be transmitted vertically. This plasticity appears to be adaptive. Unfavourable conditions delayed emergence,...
