Abstract

Mating preferences are incorporated into a host-macroparasite system. Mating preferences of the host and/or parasite can affect the outcome of the host-parasite relationship if certain genotypes of the host are more (or less) affected by the parasite induced death rate than others. Several examples illustrate the situations that can occur.
