The outcome of competition between two parasitoid species is influenced by a facultative symbiont of their aphid host
1.Symbiotic bacteria can act to protect their host against natural enemies. Where this protection is asymmetric against different natural enemies protection conferred by symbionts has the potential to mediate interactions between natural enemies, as well as between enemies and the host.Expand abstract
2.In pea aphids (Acyrthosiphon pisum), resistance against parasitoid wasps can be conferred by facultative symbiotic bacteria. We investigated whether the outcome of competition between two parasitoid sp...
