- ... Wolbachia are intracellular prokaryotic endosymbionts associated with a wide distribution of arthropod and nematode hosts. Their association ranges from parasitism to mutualism, and there is growing evidence that Wolbachia can have dramatic effects on host reproduction, physiology, and immunity. Although all Wolbachia are currently considered as single species, W. pipientis, phylogenetic studies r ...

- ... As plant mutualists, one would not expect arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) to cause growth depression of their host plants. The mechanism responsible for negative effects of AMF is still debated and so here we review the possible abiotic and biotic reasons for AMF-induced growth depression in plants: 1) The Phytocentric explanations, include: a) AMF and non-mycotrophic plants, b) different growt ...
