Table 1 Influence of host sex and co-infection on the production of transmission spores, and the relative reduction in host lifespan. In bold are the overall tests using the entire dataset for the influence of host sex on the outcome of all infection treatments (all single and co-infections together). Below these are the individual analyses for each co-infection combination.
