Cover for Entomopathogenic nematode host-search strategies.

This chapter reviews the host-seeking strategies of entomopathogenic nematodes at the infective juvenile stage. Topics include conceptual models of foraging strategies; associations between nematodes and insect hosts; biology, foraging behaviour, host habitat selection, host-seeking response to...

Cover for Parasite behavioural ecology in a field of diverse perspectives.

This chapter addresses different aspects of parasite-host interactions (host finding, host acceptance and infection, and parasite behaviours within the host) from the parasite's point of view.

Cover for Ageing and developmental behaviour.

Ageing is defined as the time-independent series of cumulative, progressive, intrinsic and deleterious functional and structural changes that usually begin to manifest themselves at reproductive maturity and eventually culminate in death. This paper describes age-dependent nematode behaviour during ...

Cover for Trematode transmission strategies.

This chapter focuses on the life cycle and host-seeking behaviour of trematodes, using cercariae as an example. The factors affecting disease transmission to intermediate (usually molluscs) and definitive hosts (man and other vertebrates) are discussed.

Cover for The interactions between larval stage parasitoids and their hosts.

This paper reviews the morphological adaptations of parasitoid larvae for survival in various host environments and how host quality influences parasitoid fitness; behavioural and physiological strategies of parasitoid larvae to exploit host resources and to overcome host defence responses (i.e....

Cover for Interspecific interactions in trematode communities.

This chapter reviews the behavioural ecology of trematodes, focusing on intramolluscular stages. Interspecific competitive interactions, their frequency, dominance hierarchies and resolutions are discussed. Strategies employed by larval trematode species to adapt to a hostile, competitive...

Cover for Parasite sex determination.

This chapter addresses the way in which parasites utilize behaviours that influence the sex ratio to optimize reproductive success and transmission. Sex-determination strategies tend to reflect 3 basic principles: mating assurance in low-density conditions; resource optimization reflecting...

Cover for Interactions between intestinal nematodes and vertebrate hosts.

This chapter focuses on the basic strategies used by gastrointestinal nematodes to get to their habitats in the gut of vertebrate hosts. Studies on the proximate mechanisms of habitat selection behaviour and the role of resources (food, attachment and mates) in parasite strategic decisions are...
