Survival of control (solid lines) versus infected (dotted lines) of male and female hosts. Control D. magna live about twice longer than infected ones. P. ramosa reduces the lifespan of both female and male Daphnia. We did not find a statistically significant difference between sexes of such lifespan reduction. The median lifespan was reduced in both sexes by exactly 50%.
