Can environmental toxins increase parasite fitness? Ecotoxicological studies on the effects of microcystin on the host-parasite dynamics of Schistocephalus solidus (The University of Bergen, 2020-08-21)Background: Eutrophication of aquatic biomes and exacerbated climate change effects are expected to result in a global increase in harmful cyanobacterial blooms. Cyanotoxins are detrimental to animal health, but how they ...Master thesis
Morph-based resistance against Schistocephalus solidus in three-spined sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus) selected under different infection- and predation regimes (The University of Bergen, 2013-06-07)The morphology of a host may have an effect on its resistance against parasites. Two geographically separated and morphologically divergent populations of three-spined sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus, Linnaeus, 1758) ...Master thesis
Reciprocal cross infection of sticklebacks with the diphyllobothriidean cestode Schistocephalus solidus reveals consistent population differences in parasite growth and host resistance (BioMed Central Ltd., 2016-03-08)Background In host-parasite evolutionary arms races, parasites are generally expected to adapt more rapidly, due to their large population sizes and short generation times. There exist systems, though, where parasites ...Journal article
