New results: Our recent work identifies evolutionary ecological parameters that influence insect immune memory in natural populations

Find the online preprint In many insects, individuals primed with low doses of pathogens live longer after being exposed to the same pathogen later in life. Yet, our understanding of the evolutionary and ecological history of priming of immune response in natural insect populations is limited. Previous work demonstrated population, sex and stage specific variation …
