Morph-based resistance against Schistocephalus solidus in three-spined sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus) selected under different infection- and predation regimes (The University of Bergen, 2013-06-07)The morphology of a host may have an effect on its resistance against parasites. Two geographically separated and morphologically divergent populations of three-spined sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus, Linnaeus, 1758) ...Master thesis
Plate reduction in freshwater threespine sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus) - an adaptation to a different buoyancy regime? (The University of Bergen, 2009-03-13)One of the striking differentiations freshwater threespine sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus) with a marine origin experiences, is a reduction in the numbers of lateral plates. This has been demonstrated to be caused ...Master thesis
Reciprocal cross infection of sticklebacks with the diphyllobothriidean cestode Schistocephalus solidus reveals consistent population differences in parasite growth and host resistance (BioMed Central Ltd., 2016-03-08)Background In host-parasite evolutionary arms races, parasites are generally expected to adapt more rapidly, due to their large population sizes and short generation times. There exist systems, though, where parasites ...Journal article
