Data from: Causation without correlation: parasite-mediated frequency-dependent selection and infection prevalence

Curtis Lively, Frida Ben-Ami & Julie Xu
Parasite-mediated selection is thought to maintain genetic diversity for resistance in natural host populations. We might thus expect to find a strong positive correlation between host genetic diversity and infection prevalence across field populations. Here we used computer simulations to examine host-parasite coevolution in 20 simi-isolated populations, using a broad range of values for both parasite virulence and parasite fecundity. We found that the correlation between host genetic diversity and infection prevalence can be significantly...
