Personality, space use and tick load in an introduced population of Siberian chipmunks Tamias sibiricus

Personality, space use and tick load in an introduced population of Siberian chipmunks Tamias... 1. Although behaviours can contribute to the heterogeneity in parasite load among hosts, links between consistent individual differences in behaviour and parasitic infection have received little attention. We investigated the role of host activity and exploration on hard tick infestations of marked individuals in a population of Siberian chipmunks Tamias sibiricus introduced in a suburban French forest over 3 years. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Animal Ecology Wiley

Abstract

1. Although behaviours can contribute to the heterogeneity in parasite load among hosts, links between consistent individual differences in behaviour and parasitic infection have received little attention. We investigated the role of host activity and exploration on hard tick infestations of marked individuals in a population of Siberian chipmunks Tamias sibiricus introduced in a suburban French forest over 3 years.
