Multipartite symbioses are complex symbiotic relationships involving multiple interacting partners. These types of partnerships provide excellent opportunities in which to apply a comparative approach to identify common historical patterns of population differentiation and species‐specific life history traits. Using three symbiotic blue‐stain fungal species (Ophiostomatacea) associated with outbreaking populations of the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins) in western Canada… 
Genetic and genomic evidence of niche partitioning and adaptive radiation in mountain pine beetle fungal symbionts
TLDR
This study tested the hypothesis that the coexistence of three fungal species associated with the mountain pine beetle is the result of niche partitioning and adaptive radiation using SNP genotyping coupled with genotype–environment association analysis and phenotypic characterization of growth rate under different temperatures and found that genetic variation and population structure within each species is best explained by distinct spatial and environmental variables.
Cascading speciation among mutualists and antagonists in a tree–beetle–fungi interaction
TLDR
Clear evidence is presented that the tree, the beetle, and the fungal symbionts are all genetically structured into at least two distinct groups that have strongly codiverged with geographical isolation.
Gene genealogies reveal cryptic species and host preferences for the pine fungal pathogen Grosmannia clavigera
TLDR
The results suggest that the host‐tree species and the beetle population dynamics may be important factors associated with the genetic divergence and diversity of fungal partners in the beetle‐tree ecosystems.
Spatial Genetic Structure of a Symbiotic Beetle-Fungal System: Toward Multi-Taxa Integrated Landscape Genetics
TLDR
The integrated landscape genetics framework presented is powerful, general, and can be applied to other systems to quantify the biotic and abiotic determinants of spatial genetic variation within and among taxa.
Comparative genomics of the pine pathogens and beetle symbionts in the genus Grosmannia.
Studies on beetle/tree fungal symbionts typically characterize the ecological and geographic distributions of the fungal populations. There is limited understanding of the genome-wide evolutionary
Spatial Community Structure of Mountain Pine Beetle Fungal Symbionts Across a Latitudinal Gradient
TLDR
The community composition of ophiostomatoid fungi associated with the mountain pine beetle as a function of latitude and elevation is examined to suggest that complex processes of competitive exclusion and coexistence help determine fungal community composition and that the consequences of these processes vary spatially.
Population structure and migration pattern of a conifer pathogen, Grosmannia clavigera, as influenced by its symbiont, the mountain pine beetle
TLDR
The patterns of diversity and the individual assignment tests of the fungal associate suggest that migration across the Rocky Mountains occurred via a northeastern corridor, in accordance with meteorological patterns and observation of MPB movement data.
Testing which axes of species differentiation underlie covariance of phylogeographic similarity among montane sedge species
TLDR
This study highlights how isolating key attributes across multiple species can inform their impact on processes driving intraspecific differentiation, as investigations of genetic variation and structure revealed that range size, but not niche breadth, is related to spatial genetic covariation across species of montane sedges.
Fine-scale genetic diversity and relatedness in fungi associated with the mountain pine beetle
TLDR
The mountain pine beetle forms beneficial symbiotic associations with fungi and the fine-scale spatial genetic structure of three of those associations is explored.
Sympatric Parasites Have Similar Host-Associated, but Asynchronous, Patterns of Diversification
TLDR
Although these parasites experienced similar landscapes and cyclic climate processes, temporally distinctive diversification events were associated with differences in the initiation of their association with host lineages, suggesting that when climate cycles initiate diversification, partially congruent, but asynchronous, host-associated parasite phylogenies may emerge.

Phylogeography of post‐Pleistocene population expansion in a fungus‐gardening ant and its microbial mutualists
TLDR
Results show that biogeographical forces may act differently on macro‐ and microscopic organisms, even in the extreme case where microbial mutualists are vertically transmitted from generation to generation and share the same joint ecological niche.
Population structure and diversity in sexual and asexual populations of the pathogenic fungus Melampsora lini
TLDR
The population genetic structure of wild populations of the plant pathogen Melampsora lini on its host Linum marginale is investigated using amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers, two genes underlying pathogen virulence, and phenotypic variation in virulence.
Phylogeography of marine mutualists: parallel patterns of genetic structure between obligate goby and shrimp partners
TLDR
The results suggest that these mutualists recovered from a major disturbance by colonizing South Pacific islands in synchrony.
EVOLUTIONARY DIVERSIFICATION THROUGH HYBRIDIZATION IN A WILD HOST–PATHOGEN INTERACTION
TLDR
It is shown that two genetically and geographically divergent pathogen lineages dominate interactions with the host across Australia, and a hybrid origin for one of the lineages is demonstrated, demonstrating coevolutionary diversification in long-standing host–pathogen interactions.
Population structure between environmentally transmitted vibrios and bobtail squids using nested clade analysis
TLDR
This study examined the variation and history of three allopatric Euprymna squid species and their respective Vibrio symbionts to highlight the importance of how interactions between symbiotic organisms can unexpectedly shape population structure in phylogeographical studies.
Dendroctonus bark beetles as model systems for studies on symbiosis
TLDR
A framework for developing and testing predictions on Dendroctonus-fungus symbioses is developed, which summarizes their life histories and associations with fungi and develops predictions on where particular association types are most likely to occur.
Lack of global population genetic differentiation in the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus mosseae suggests a recent range expansion which may have coincided with the spread of agriculture
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that speciation and the range expansion happened much later than continental spread and that human activity may have had a major impact on the dispersal and the population structure of the fungus.
Comparative phylogeography of Trypanosoma rangeli and Rhodnius (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) supports a long coexistence of parasite lineages and their sympatric vectors
TLDR
Congruence between phylogeographical analysis of both T. rangeli lineages and complexes of Rhodnius species are consistent with the hypothesis of a long coexistence of parasites and their vectors, with lineage divergence associated with sympatric species of RhodNius apparently without association with particular vertebrate hosts.
Recombination in Glomus intraradices, a supposed ancient asexual arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus
TLDR
The data show that AMF from one field have undergone recombination but that clonal lineages coexist, reconciling seemingly contradictory studies on whether AMF are clonal or form recombining populations.
Comparative phylogeography of Nearctic and Palearctic fishes
TLDR
Combining phylogeographic data from mitochondrial DNA of Nearctic and Palearctic freshwater and anadromous fishes with historical events to assess the influence of historical events on evolutionary patterns and processes in regional fish faunas demonstrates that comparative phylOgeography can be used to evaluate not only phylo geographic patterns but also evolutionary processes.
