Parasitism and Ecosystems EDITED BY Frédéric Thomas François Renaud National Centre for Scientific Research, France Jean-François Guégan Institut de Recherches pour le Développement, France.

For several years there has been a growing interest in understanding the dynamics of parasites in ecosystems, as well as the diversity of ways in which they influence ecosystem functioning through their effects on host populations and communities.

Ecologists, epidemiologists, evolutionary biologists, and other scientists are increasingly coming to realise that parasites must be taken into. Spatial patterns of parasitism are thought to be strongly associated with local adaptation, relative rates of migration by hosts and parasites, and local levels of resource availability.

This chapter reviews theoretical and empirical studies of local adaptation, and their bearings on spatial patterns of parasitism. It then reviews theoretical and empirical studies of dispersal and parasitism.

Gabriele Sorci, Stéphane Garnier, in Encyclopedia of Ecology (Second Edition), Abstract. Parasitism is a pervasive phenomenon in nature involving, either as hosts or as parasites, virtually all species on earth.

By definition, parasites are costly for their hosts as they divert resources for their growth, reproduction and survival with no rewards for the hosts. Evolutionary Ecology of Parasites presents an evolutionary framework for the study of parasite biology, combining theory with empirical examples for a broader understanding of why parasites are as they are and do what they do.
