The coevolutionary implications of host tolerance

Evolution; International Journal of Organic Evolution

Jan 31, 2014

A BestM Boots

Abstract

Host tolerance to infectious disease, whereby hosts do not directly "fight" parasites but instead ameliorate the damage caused, is an important defense mechanism in both plants and animals. Because tolerance to parasite virulence may lead to higher prevalence of disease in a population,...read more
