Natural infections often consist of multiple pathogens of the same or different species. When co‐infections occur, pathogens compete for access to host resources and fitness is determined by how well a pathogen can reproduce compared to its competitors. Yet not all hosts provide the same resource pool. Males and females, in particular, commonly var...

Natural infections often consist multiple pathogens of the same or different species. In multiple infections, pathogens compete for access to host resources and fitness is determined by how well a pathogen can reproduce compared to its competitors. Given the propensity for males and females to exhibit variation in pathogen-induced reduction in life...

... | 6777 SLUIJS et aL. differences between the sexes can underlie differences in pathogen susceptibility, thereby potentially favouring one sex over another in an infected population (Gipson et al., 2019;Klein & Flanagan, 2016;Scully et al., 2020). Although theory shows that sexual reproduction is evolutionary stable when both sexes are equally present (Fisher, 1930), skewed sex ratios are often observed in nature. ...
