Indirect effects, both density- and trait-mediated, have been known to act in tandem with direct effects in the interactions of numerous species. They have been shown to affect populations embedded in competitive and mutualistic networks alike. At the same time, in disease systems, pathogens can harm their hosts in a variety of ways. For this reason, we define virulence as an umbrella term that encompasses disease induced mortality, fecundity reduction and increased predation due to the disease.
