English Seasonal disease dynamics are common in nature, but their causes are often unknown. Our case study provides insight into the cyclic prevalence pattern of the horizontally and vertically transmitted microsporidium <i>Octosporea bayeri</i> in its <i>Daphnia magna</i> host. Data from several populations over a four year period revealed a regular prevalence increase during summer and a decrease... Show more…
