Summary of "Defensive symbionts."

Interactions in nature vary from competitive to neutral to symbiotic. An interesting case of symbiosis is seen when one organism provides protection to the other-a relationship termed 'defensive symbiosis'. Kayla King highlights this interesting type of relationship, which can be found throughout the tree of life.

Interactions Between Facultative Symbionts Hamiltonella and Cardinium in Bemisia tabaci (Hemiptera: Aleyrodoidea): Cooperation or Conflict?

Maternally-inherited facultative symbionts are widespread in most insect species, and it is common that several symbionts coexist in the same host individual. Hence, the symbionts may compete or share...

Extended mutualism between termites and gut microbes: nutritional symbionts contribute to nest hygiene.
