New research published in Parasites & Vectors finds that climate change may negatively effect cold water fish whilst benefiting their parasites. In the study researchers collected three-spined sticklebacks  and tapeworms from both cold and warm water sites in Lake Mývatn, Iceland and measured the growth rates of both species at varying temperatures in a lab environment.
