Abstract

Competition mediated through a shared natural enemy is known as 'apparent competition' and could be an important force determining community structure and biodiversity. Recently, experimental and theoretical studies have provided a new insight into the mechanisms and conditions that could influence coexistence or exclusion. Parasite-mediated competition is particularly significant, given the rise in emerging diseases and the opportunity that pathogens have to reduce host abundance.
