Abstract
    Research within the SPEEDY-network has shown that urbanisation has an effect on the parasite and symbiont community. In a few cases urbanization was associated with a reduction in the number of micro-organisms associated with the host. Nevertheless there are species specific responses: particular species increase and others decrease in the city. The possibility of the host to invest in immune responses is an important explaining factor in this pattern. It is important to note that initiatives to increase biodiversity in cities are recommended, this to avoid that opportunistic and harmful infections thrive. The SPEEDY-research further showed that the microbiome is a crucial element in the flexibility for the host to adapt to fast and changing environments, inclusive the presence of toxic substances and infectious diseases.
