The facultative endosymbionts of grain aphids and the horizontal transfer of ecologically important traits

Abstract:
  1. Insects are often infected with facultative endosymbiotic bacteria, which can have a range of important ecological effects. The grain aphid, Sitobion avenae, harbours diverse facultative symbionts, which suggests their importance in grain aphid biology.
  2. This thesis attempts to explain the ecological roles of the facultative endosymbionts in S. avenae. It also examines the question of whether the horizontal transmissio...
