My laboratory associates and I explore the ecology and evolution of parasitic worms. Parasites often alter the behavior of intermediate hosts in ways that enhance transmission of the parasite. Using an acanthocephalan, a variety of species of cockroaches, and strictly comparative behavioral tests, we are asking questions about the phylogeny and ecology of these alterations. In addition, we are currently learning about the role that thermal choices play in alterations of parasitized host behavior. Additional includes studies of parasite communities in large birds.
