Beschreibung:Parasites are considered to be one of the major driving forces in the evolution of organisms. The outcome of an infection might, however, not only be determined by host-parasite interactions but also by within-host dynamics. Using the three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) and the tapeworm Schistocephalus solidus as model organisms, this thesis addresses various aspects of such interactions. Apart from parasite mate choice as potentially important parasite-parasite interaction, dynamics of multiple infections and various aspects of the host's immune system were investigated.
