Host specificity in marine sponge-associated bacteria, and potential implications for marine microbial diversity.

Abstract

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… (More)
