Bacteriocyte-associated symbionts of insects | Microbial Ecology, University of Vienna

The Quarterly Review of Biology Nutrition of plant-sucking insects on chemically defined diets. Adelgids are plant sap feeding insects which exclusively feed on conifers, and whose symbionts are only poorly characterized so far. The investigation of additional adelgid species and genomic analysis of the identified symbionts will help to further extend our understanding of the evolution of this symbiosis and the role of the bacterial symbionts in this association.

Symbiosis with bacteria thus is a key factor driving the ecology and the evolution of insects. The biology of blood-sucking in insects. Biology of blood-sucking insects book review.

Reactions between plant-sucking insects and the tissues sucked. Michael Wagner recognized as Highly Cited Researcher Bacteriocyte-associated symbionts of insects. The two phylogenetically different bacterial symbionts of mealybugs are not located in the same or neighboring bacteriocytes, but one symbiont Tremblaya princeps contains the other symbiont, which lives directly within its cytoplasm. The symbionts of mealybugs show a unique feature which makes this symbiosis different from all other known symbioses: On the medically important insects in the danjo islands japan especially on the larval habitats the blood sucking habits and trans oceanic flight of the blood sucking insects.
