Reproductive microbiotas of the red junglefowl, Gallus gallus: Patterns and drivers of variation

Abstract:

Organisms host diverse and complex bacterial communities (microbiotas), often with fundamental roles in host ecology and evolution. While microbiotas of the gut have received considerable research focus, relatively little is known about reproductive microbiotas, (i.e. those communities living within the reproductive tract and potentially transmitted at mating), despite the potentially critical role they may play in host sexual selection and mating system evolution.
