NSF Research Collaborative Network: Refining and Diversifying Ecological Immunology

Immunity to pathogens and parasites has historically been understudied in evolutionary ecology.  However, in recent years, the study of the causes and consequences of investment in immune function, termed ecoimmunology, has transformed multiple realms of biology, including behavioral biology, disease ecology and life history evolution.  To foster continued productivity and expansion of this emerging field, ecoimmunology requires theoretical refinement and methodological consistency.  This is possible only through the combined efforts of scientists that would otherwise not interact.
