By infecting multiple hosts and acting as a food resource, parasites can affect food-webs and ecosystem energy transfer. We developed an approach to quantify parasite biomass and applied it to 12 species representing >10,000 individuals. This method will facilitate future investigations into the ecological significance of parasites, particularly with respect to ecosystem energetics.
