Differential response to mosquito host sex and parasite dosage suggest mixed dispersal strategies in the parasite Ascogregarina taiwanensis
The mean proportion of mosquitoes surviving to adulthood (A) and mosquito per capita rate of increase (B) exposed to different parasite dosages. Host Aedes albopictus fitness declines by two measures as dosage of Ascogregarina taiwanensis increases. Different letters within each plot are significantly different based on Tukey’s HSD. Whiskers are bootstrapped 95% confidence intervals (1000 replicates).
