Neotyphodium are fungal endosymbionts of grasses that reproduce asexually by infecting the host’s seed. This relationship has traditionally been considered mutualistic, with the fungus improving host fitness by alleviating important stresses. To determine the importance of biotic and abiotic...
Endophytic fungi are plant symbionts living asymptomatically within plant tissues. Neotyphodium spp., which are asexual vertically transmitted systemic fungal endophytes of cool-season grasses, are predicted to be plant mutualists. These endophytes increase host plant resistance to environmental...
Bacteria of the genus Lactobacillus can be found associated with plants, insects and vertebrate hosts, and their lifestyle can range from free-living to strictly host specific. Of the lactobacilli associated with vertebrates, the lifestyle of L. reuteri is particularly well understood. The...
Physiological, ecological and environmental factors that predispose trees, stands and landscapes to infestation by tree-killing Dendroctonus beetlesDownload
In the last century the frequency and severity of outbreaks of tree-killing Dendroctonus beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) have increased. Small-scale drivers within trees likely drive outbreak dynamics across landscapes. At a small scale, variation in carbohydrate availability within the stems...
In the low nutrient environment of conifer bark, subcortical beetles often carry symbiotic fungi that concentrate nutrients in host tissues. Although bark beetles are known to benefit from these symbioses, whether this is because they survive better in nutrient-rich phloem is unknown. After...
Unique cellular interactions between the obligate intracellular bacteria Wolbachia pipientis and its insect hostDownload
Wolbachia are maternally inherited obligate intracellular bacteria found in arthropods, where they induce feminization, male-killing, parthenogenesis, and cytoplasmic incompatibility (CI). CI is conditional male sterility, in which Wolbachia-infected males successfully mate with infected females,...
