Biodiversity is fundamental to both eukaryote and prokaryote ecology, yet investigations of diversity often differ markedly between the two disciplines. Host specificity - the association of organisms with only a few (specialism) or many (generalism) host species - is recognized within eukaryote ecology as a key determinant of diversity. In contrast, its implications for microbial diversity have received relatively little attention. Here we explore the relationship between microbial diversity… CONTINUE READING
