Differential response to mosquito host sex and parasite dosage suggest mixed dispersal strategies in the parasite Ascogregarina taiwanensis
Male mosquitoes had a smaller proportion of oocysts in the adult until the highest dosage, 10000 oocysts/ml, where male and female mosquitoes had the same percent of oocysts in adults.
