Opening the doors of parasitology journals to other symbionts

Intimate symbiotic relationships between species (e.g., between a larger ‘host’ and a smaller ‘symbiont’) span the range from mutualism to parasitism. The nature of a symbiotic relationship is not...

Vertical transmission in feather mites

The consequences of symbiont transmission strategies are better understood than their adaptive causes. Feather mites are permanent ectosymbionts of birds assumed to transmit mainly vertically and...

Infrapopulation size explains genetic diversity in a host-symbiont non-model system

Understanding what shapes variation in genetic diversity among species remains a major challenge in evolutionary ecology, and it has been seldom studied in parasites and other host-symbiont...
