This volume presents ecological consequences and evolutionary
mechanisms that may be associated with behavioral alterations in
parasitized hosts. Alterations may result from natural selection
favoring the host or parasite, or there may be side effects of
physiological changes associated with symbiosis. This book
summarizes the literature in this area, showing that reports of
alteration may frequently be consistent with more than one
evolutionary explanation and that rigorous tests are needed before
the phenomenon can be understood and placed in a predictive
framework. Such understanding is important, because these
behavioral alterations have been shown to have the potential to
affect the distribution of animals in nature and their interactions
with predators and competitors, and the alterations may have
implications for vector biology.
