Data from: Migratory behavior of birds affects their coevolutionary relationship with blood parasites

Tania Jenkins, Gavin Huw Thomas, Olof Hellgren & Ian P. F. Owens
Host traits, such as migratory behavior, could facilitate the dispersal of disease causing parasites, potentially leading to the transfer of infections both across geographic areas and between host species. There is however, little quantitative information on whether variation in such host attributes do indeed affect the evolutionary outcome of host-parasite associations. Here, we employ Leucocytozoon blood parasites of birds, a group of parasites closely related to avian malaria, to study host-parasite coevolution in relation to...
