http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2652714/ “Graveyards on the Move: The Spatio-Temporal Distribution of Dead Ophiocordyceps-Infected Ants”. A mildly interesting study on the distribution of ants infected by a particular fungus; the scientists “examin[ed] every leaf in 1360 square meters of primary rainforest” in southern Thailand. I found this via some decently interesting blog on parasites – cool.
