We analyzed point-prevalence data from 35 recent studies of human populations in which Plasmodium falciparum and one other Plasmodium species were the reported causes of malaria infections. For the P. falciparum-Plasmodium vivax pair, higher overall prevalence in a human population is associated with fewer mixed-species infections than expected on the basis of the product of individual species prevalences. This is not true for P. falciparum-Plasmodium malariae.
