The new Journal of Animal Ecology special issue focuses on animal host-microbe interactions (often in a disease context) looks like a must read. All the articles look interesting but there a few which particularly stand out . Most I’ve seen in preprint form but it is nice to see them all together. In no particular order:
Mihaljevic et al on parasite metacommunities – this looks like an interesting technique!
Keiser et al on queen presence and disease – ants are always interesting.
Raulo et al on social behaviour and gut microbiota.
Becker et al on resource provisioning and host traits in detrmining host-parasite interactions.
Looking forward to reading these articles and the others in more detail!
