Survey of Heritable Endosymbionts in Southern Mexico Populations of the Fruit Fly Species Anastrepha striata and A. ludens

Abstract

Heritable endosymbiotic bacteria associated with insects are ubiquitous and taxonomically diverse. Many of these endosymbionts influence the fitness of their hosts and/or manipulate their host reproduction.
