Abstract

Parasite-host coevolution can have many different endpoints, not simply the commensalism of 'conventional wisdom'. Empirical studies and mathematical models are elucidating the conditions under which parasite-host systems can coevolve to intermediate and high levels of parasite virulence - and when they can coevolve to commensalism and mutualism.
