1. Increased risk of infectious disease transmission has been proposed as one major cost of group living. While factors corresponding to transmission via exposure to infectious stages and susceptibility to infections upon contact are relatively well understood, both aspects are rarely investigated simultaneously. 2. Here, we assessed the influence of exposure and susceptibility measures on strongyle nematode reinfection after experimental deworming of Barbary macaques (Macaca sylvanus) (n=57). We investigated impacts of behaviour (social bonds, grooming...
