    C Sandrock
    Institute of Zoology, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
    J Evol Biol 23:578-85. 2010
    ..Thus, there is no evidence for genotype specificity in the interaction between A. fabae and L. fabarum, suggesting that the observed variation is based on rather general mechanisms of defence and attack...

    A P S Bieri
    Institute of Environmental Sciences, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
    J Evol Biol 22:1775-80. 2009
    ..These findings suggest that natural variation in prevalence of endophyte infection can contribute to the maintenance of genetic diversity in aphid populations...

    Department of Genetics, La Trobe University, Bundoora VIC 3086, Australia
    Mol Ecol 12:3493-504. 2003
