Parasites can move between hosts either by horizontal or vertical transmission. Why might those parasites that employ horizontal transmission be more impacted by environmental stochasticity? O Host defenses may be impacted by environmental conditions. O Pathogenicity may be impacted by environmental conditions. O Vectors may be affected by environmental conditions. O Vertical transmission requires a vector.
