Gut physiology mediates a trade-off between adaptation to malnutrition and susceptibility to food-borne pathogens

Ecology Letters

Aug 8, 2015

Roshan K VijendravarmaTadeusz J Kawecki

Abstract

The animal gut plays a central role in tackling two common ecological challenges, nutrient shortage and food-borne parasites, the former by efficient digestion and nutrient absorption, the latter by acting as an immune organ and a barrier. It remains unknown whether these functions can ...read more
