Ecological Factors Influencing Community Structure of Parasites and Their Hosts

Andrew William Bartlow
Understanding patterns and processes underlying the structure and assembly of ecological communities is a major goal of ecology. Community assembly involves a balance between dispersal events and interactions with biotic and abiotic elements that make up the local environment. Determining which processes dominate and under what circumstances remains unclear for parasite communities. Parasite communities of deer mice are examined to determine whether host traits, parasite interactions, and/or parasite dispersal is important in structuring within host...
