Microbial Brokers of Insect-Plant Interactions Revisited

  title={Microbial Brokers of Insect-Plant Interactions Revisited},
  author={Angela E. Douglas},
  journal={Journal of Chemical Ecology},
Recent advances in sequencing methods have transformed the field of microbial ecology, making it possible to determine the composition and functional capabilities of uncultured microorganisms. These technologies have been instrumental in the recognition that resident microorganisms can have profound effects on the phenotype and fitness of their animal hosts by modulating the animal signaling networks that regulate growth, development, behavior, etc. Against this backdrop, this review assesses… CONTINUE READING
