Data from: Host sex modulates the energetics of pathogen proliferation and its dependence on environmental resources

Matthew Hall, Lindsey Heffernan, Amanda Pettersen & Stephen Gipson
Sex differences in immunity are predicted to underlie much of the frequently observed sex differences in the prevalence or severity of infection. We propose the additional hypothesis that differences in the ability of males and females to acquire and use resources will also affect how readily a pathogen can convert host energy into transmission stages, thereby contributing to sex differences in infection dynamics. To test this we manipulated the resource environment of male and female...
