    J Theor Biol 231:345-55. 2004
    ..Computer simulations confirmed these findings for the general models. We discuss our results with respect to the prevalence of the Wolbachia-types considered here and the emergence of PI- from CI-Wolbachia...

    J Engelstädter
    Department of Biology, University College London, London, UK
    J Evol Biol 20:685-95. 2007
    ..We discuss our results with respect to recent empirical results on endosymbiont densities, the evolution of CI-inducing bacteria and, more generally, the evolution of cooperation through direct fitness benefits...
  3. pmc The impact of male-killing bacteria on host evolutionary processes

    J Engelstädter
    Department of Biology, UCL, London NW1 2HE, UK
    J Evol Biol 19:194-202. 2006
    ..These results are combined with consideration of mechanism and ecology to appraise the likelihood of male-killers and CI inducing bacteria being involved in the evolution of haplodiploidy...
  6. pmc The evolution of cytoplasmic incompatibility types: integrating segregation, inbreeding and outbreeding
    Jan Engelstädter
    Department of Biology, University College, The Galton Laboratories, London NW1 2HE, United Kingdom

    Jan Engelstädter
    Department of Biology, University College London, Wolfson House, London NW1 2HE, United Kingdom
    Evolution 58:2382-6. 2004
    ..Thus, we predict that there will be some complementarity in the incidence of X chromosome meiotic drive and male-killing in natural populations, with a lower than expected number of species bearing both elements...

    Sylvain Charlat
    Department of Biology, University College London, 4 Stephenson Way, London NW1 2HE, United Kingdom
    Curr Biol 16:2453-8. 2006

    Department of Biology, University College London, 4 Stephenson Way, London NW1 2HE, UK
    Mol Ecol 17:1427-37. 2008
    ..Overall, this study demonstrates that the majority of spider species are infected with inherited bacteria, and their role in host biology clearly requires determination...

    Olivier Duron
    University College London, Department of Biology, Stephenson Way, London NW1 2HE, UK
