partner associations across sympatric broad-headed bug species and their environmentally acquired bacterial symbionts.many organisms have intimate associations with beneficial microbes acquired from the environment. these host-symbiont associations can be specific and stable, but they are prone to lower partner specificity and more partner-switching than vertically transmitted mutualisms. to investigate partner specificity in an environmentally acquired insect symbiosis, we used 16s rrna gene and multilocus sequencing to survey the bacterial population in the bacteria-harbouring organ (crypts) of 49 individuals ...201424384031
