Parasitic Hosts

Parasitism is a non-mutual symbiotic relationship between species, where as one species the parasite benefits at the expense of other the host. Traditionally parasite referred primarily to organisms visible to the naked eye or macro parasites such as helminths.

Parasites can be micro parasites, which are typically smaller such as protozoa viruses, and bacteria.

Parasites typically do not kill their host but generally much smaller than their host and will often live in or on their host for an extended period. Parasitism differs from the parasitoid relationship in that parasitoids generally kill their hosts.

Parasites have a variety of methods to infect hosts. Parasites infect hosts that exist within their same geographical area. This phenomenon supports the “Red Queen hypothesis”.
