2 Daphnia Infected and Uninfected by Metschnikowia (image) Georgia Institute of Technology Share Print E-Mail Caption A new study suggests that when battling an epidemic of a deadly parasite, less resistance can sometimes be better than more. This image shows a Daphnia dentifera infected with the virulent yeast pathogen Metschnikowia bicuspidata (lower left) and an uninfected Daphnia (top right). The parasite fills the body, making the infected Daphnia appear darker brown in the image.
