Animal migration patterns are changing as humans alter the landscape, according to new research from the University of Georgia Odum School of  Ecology. Those changes can affect wildlife interactions with parasites—with potential impacts on public health and on the phenomenon of migration itself.

Parasites and hosts may respond differently to a warmer world

The study of a host-parasite system in coastal waters of the southeastern U.S. found that a rise of just 2 degrees Celsius could be enough to cause the parasite to die out locally, as infected hosts are not able to survive at the higher temperature.
