Mutual fitness benefits arise during coevolution in a nematode‐defensive microbe model

Abstract:

Species interactions can shift along the parasitism‐mutualism continuum. However, the consequences of these transitions for coevolutionary interactions remain unclear. We experimentally coevolved a novel species interaction between Caenorhabditis elegans hosts and a mildly parasitic bacterium, Enterococcus faecalis, with host‐protective properties against virulent Staphylococcus aureus. Coinfections drove the evolutionary transition of the C. elegans–E. faecalis relationship toward a recipro...
