The impact of intrinsic and extrinsic factors on the epidemiology of male-killing bacteria

Abstract:

Many arthropod species are vulnerable to infection by bacteria that kill the male offspring of their female hosts. These male-killing bacteria (MKB) can greatly impact the ecology and evolution of their hosts, particularly when MKB prevalence is high and persistent through time. However, we still do not have a holistic understanding of the key determinants of MKB ecological epidemiology, particularly regarding the interplay between host-MKB traits and environmental conditions. Here, we derive...
