Figure 5

Representation of the aging and non-aging phenotypes in the hermaphrodite population under various parasite pressure. Results show a scenario without parasites (a), with parasites causing a fecundity reduction (b; E1 = 0.8, E2 = 0), and with parasites causing mortality enhancement (c; E1 = 0, E2 = 0.2, and d; E1 = 0, E2 = 0.4). Other parameters are as in Table 1, with b0 = β = 1.5, pc = 0.5, ps = 0.5; 20 simulation replicates are run for each simulated scenario.
