The impacts of host association and perturbation on symbiont fitness

Kim Hoang
Symbiosis benefits hosts in numerous ways, but much less is known about how host-association affects symbionts. While symbiont fitness can be mediated by host, symbiont, and/or environmental factors, recent works indicate that symbiont performance can depend on whether the symbiont is needed by the host, suggesting that symbiosis is not always beneficial for symbionts. To determine the impact of symbiosis on symbionts across the Tree of Life, we conducted a meta-analysis across 83 unique host-symbiont...
