Research questions being investigated by CRIPES:
How do environmental conditions affect host-parasite interactions?
How does the parasite community of invasive species differ relative to their native range?
Do parasites change competitive interactions between invasive and endemic hosts?
What is the extent of parasite spill-over between farmed and wild hosts?
What is the interplay between host social behaviour and parasite transmission?
How do macroparasites interact with the host gut microbiome?
What is the impact of confection on parasite dynamics and evolution?
How do parasites interact during coinfection?
