Coevolution’s conflicting role in the establishment of beneficial associations

Kim Hoang, Heidi Choi, Nicole Gerardo & Levi Morran
Reciprocal adaptation between hosts and symbionts can drive the maintenance of symbioses, resulting in coevolution and beneficial genotypic interactions. Consequently, hosts may experience decreased fitness when paired with non-sympatric partners compared to sympatric symbionts. However, coevolution does not preclude conflict—host and symbiont can act to advance their own fitness interests, which do not necessarily align with those of their partner. Despite coevolution’s importance in extant symbioses, we know little about its role in shaping the...
