The investigation of additional adelgid species and genomic analysis of the identified symbionts will help to further extend our understanding of the evolution of this symbiosis and the role of the bacterial symbionts in this association.

On the medically important insects in the Danjo Islands, especially on the larval habitats, the blood-sucking habits and transoceanic flight of the blood-sucking insects. Sucking insects of primary importance. The genetic properties of the primary endosymbionts of mealybugs differ from those of other endosymbionts of plant sap-sucking insects.

Symbiosis with bacteria thus is a key factor driving the ecology and the evolution of insects. The symbionts of mealybugs show a unique feature which makes this symbiosis different from all other known symbioses: Sucking insects of cotton plants: The two phylogenetically different bacterial symbionts of mealybugs are not located in the same or neighboring bacteriocytes, but one symbiont Tremblaya princeps contains the other symbiont, which lives directly within its cytoplasm.

We found that adelgids contain a surprising diversity of bacterial symbionts suggesting a complex evolutionary history for this symbiosis, which involved co-evolution as well as multiple infection events and symbiont replacement.

Adelgids are plant sap feeding insects which exclusively feed on conifers, and whose symbionts are only poorly characterized so far. Michael Wagner recognized as Highly Cited Researcher Our work will contribute to a better understanding of this nested symbiosis and the biology of a group of mealybugs which occurs as a major pest all over the world.

The presence of heritable bacterial endosymbionts in insects is widespread in nature. We are currently studying the bacterial symbionts of two insect groups, adelgids Adelgidae and mealybugs Pseudococcidae. This is fundamentally different from symbiosis between bacteria and aphids, where a single obligate symbiont, B.
