Abstract

Introduction Although physiological and behavioral responses are often reported in animals with high worm burdens, or helminthes,1* the adaptive signicance of these responses is unknown.3,4 Similarly, although the eld of biomedicine and medical anthropology is replete with publications on the short-term physiological and health effects of helminthes on their hosts, the evolutionary causes and consequences of those responses that might shed light on present-day human global health patterns are also unknown.
