Fig. 2

Dynamics of mean parasitaemia of Plasmodium (Giovannolaia) homocircumflexum (cytochrome b lineage pCOLL4), mean haematocrit value and body mass in experimentally infected (red line) and control (green line) Loxia curvirostra (a), Sturnus vulgaris (b), Passer domesticus (c) and Fringilla coelebs (d). Arrows indicate the days when individual experimentally infected birds died. Abscissa shows days post exposure. Vertical lines indicate standard error. Note that dose of infection was different in different bird species, and comparison of data between avian hosts should be done with caution
