The incidence and diversity of Wolbachia in gallwasps (Hymenoptera; Cynipidae) on oak.
Wolbachia bacteria infect approximately 20% of all insect species, and cause a range of alterations to host reproduction, including imposition of thelytoky. The incidence and phenotypic impact of Wolbachia remains to be established in many insect taxa, and considerable research effort is currently focused on its association with particular reproductive modes and the relative importance of the various pathways via which infection occurs. Gallwasps represent an attractive system for addressing ...Expand abstract
