    Appl Environ Microbiol 75:1036-43. 2009
    ..Robust delineation of supergroups is essential for understanding the origin and spread of this common reproductive parasite and for unraveling mechanisms of host adaptation and manipulation across a wide range of hosts...

    Heredity (Edinb) 102:413-22. 2009
    ..We show that infection frequencies in field populations ranged from completely uninfected to a polymorphic state. In none of the populations infections were fixed...

    BMC Biol 7:20. 2009
    ..We argue that the transfer of genes between host and symbiont may occasionally be of great evolutionary importance, particularly in the evolution of the symbiotic interaction itself...
