Figure 4

Spread of resistance in the model that allows superinfection of individual hosts by resistant and sensitive parasites. The graph shows the proportion of parasites that are resistant when the population has reached equilibrium as a function of the cost of resistance (defined by equation 12) and the proportion of infections treated. The mosquito density m was set to 1, the recovery rate of resistant infections r R was determined by the cost of resistance, and the other parameters were as given in Fig. 3.
