High diversity and low genetic structure of feather mites associated with a phenotypically variable bird host.

Abstract

Obligate symbionts may be genetically structured among host individuals and among phenotypically distinct host populations. Such processes may in turn determine within-host genetic diversity of symbionts, which is relevant for understanding symbiont population dynamics. We analysed the population genetic structure of two species of feather mites… (More)
