The role of microorganisms in coral health, disease and evolution
TLDR
Generalization of the coral probiotic hypothesis has led to the hologenome theory of evolution, which proposes the occurrence of a dynamic relationship between symbiotic microorganisms and corals that selects for the coral holobiont that is best suited for the prevailing environmental conditions.
Commensal bacteria play a role in mating preference of Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
In this study, mating preference was achieved by dividing a population of Drosophila melanogaster and rearing one part on a molasses medium and the other on a starch medium and it was confirmed that symbiotic bacteria can influence mating preference by changing the levels of cuticular hydrocarbon sex pheromones.
The coral probiotic hypothesis.
TLDR
The Coral Probiotic Hypothesis posits that a dynamic relationship exists between symbiotic microorganisms and environmental conditions which brings about the selection of the most advantageous coral holobiont.
Role of microorganisms in the evolution of animals and plants: the hologenome theory of evolution.
TLDR
The hologenome theory of evolution considers the holobiont (the animal or plant with all of its associated microorganisms) as a unit of selection in evolution and fits within the framework of the 'superorganism' proposed by Wilson and Sober.
Microbes Drive Evolution of Animals and Plants: the Hologenome Concept
TLDR
Every natural animal and plant is a holobiont consisting of the host and diverse symbiotic microbes and viruses, and a large number of studies have demonstrated that these symbionts contribute to the anatomy, physiology, development, innate and adaptive immunity, and behavior and finally also to genetic variation and to the origin and evolution of species.
The hologenome concept of evolution after 10 years
TLDR
It is argued that rapid changes in the microbiome genome could allow holobionts to Adapt and survive under changing environmental conditions thus providing the time necessary for the host genome to adapt and evolve.
The hologenome theory of evolution contains Lamarckian aspects within a Darwinian framework.
TLDR
The hologenome theory of evolution incorporates Lamarckian aspects within a Darwinian framework, accentuating both cooperation and competition within the holobiont and with otherholobionts.
The Hologenome Concept: Human, Animal and Plant Microbiota
TLDR
The hologenome concept presents a novel way of looking at symbiosis as a close association of two or more dissimilar organisms where the association is advantageous to one and does not affect the other(s).
Getting the Hologenome Concept Right: an Eco-Evolutionary Framework for Hosts and Their Microbiomes
TLDR
Holobionts and hologenomes are incontrovertible, multipartite entities that result from ecological, evolutionary, and genetic processes at various levels that constitute a wider vocabulary and framework for host biology in light of the microbiome.
Symbiotic bacteria are responsible for diet-induced mating preference in Drosophila melanogaster, providing support for the hologenome concept of evolution
Diet-induced mating preference in Drosophila melanogaster results from amplification of the commensal bacterium Lactobacillus plantarum, providing a new role for gut microbiota and support for the
