Comparative Tests of Parasite Species Richness in Primates
Some hosts harbor diverse parasite communities, whereas others are relatively parasite free. Many factors have been proposed to account for patterns of parasite species richness, but few studies have investigated competing hypotheses among multiple parasite communities in the same host clade. We used a comparative data set of 941 host-parasite combinations, representing 101 anthropoid primate species and 231 parasite taxa, to test the relative importance of four sets of variables that have beendoi:10.1086/378721 pmid:14618538 fatcat:a6uxm5z4vjdpbg5dvxcmhkswwy
