Epidemiology in evolutionary time: the case of Wolbachia horizontal transmission between arthropod host species.

Abstract

Wolbachia are bacterial endosymbionts that manipulate the reproduction of their arthropod hosts. Although theory suggests that infections are frequently lost within host species due to the evolution of resistance, Wolbachia infect a huge number of species worldwide. This apparent paradox suggests that horizontal transmission between host species has been a… (More)
