Data from: Multiple endosymbiont infections and reproductive manipulations in a linyphiid spider population

Meghan Curry, Leocadia Paliulis, Kelton Welch, James Harwood & Jennifer White
In many arthropods, maternally inherited endosymbiotic bacteria can increase infection frequency by manipulating host reproduction. Multiple infections of different bacteria in a single host population are common, yet few studies have documented concurrent endosymbiont phenotypes or explored their potential interactions. We hypothesized that spiders might be a particularly useful taxon for investigating endosymbiont interactions, because they are host to a plethora of endosymbiotic bacteria and frequently exhibit multiple infections. We established two matrilines from the...
