Abstract

This study shows, for the first time, that the effects hosts and parasites exert on each other (e.g. hosts providing resources to parasites and parasites exploiting the resources of hosts) are driven by temporally-persistent species. However, effects of some species vary greatly with time while those of others are temporally-stable.
