Phylosymbiosis: Relationships and Functional Effects of Microbial Communities across Host Evolutionary History

Fig 6

Effects of allochthonous and autochthonous microbial communities on the survival of Nasonia wasps.

(A) Normalized larval-to-adult survival of N. giraulti wasps harboring no, self, or foreign microbiota. (B) Normalized larval-to-adult survival of N. vitripennis wasps harboring no, self, or foreign microbiota. Adult survival is calculated as number of adults in a transwell / number of first instar larvae in a transwell. Adult survival was normalized to the average survival of the autochthonous microbiota transplantation. Circles represent individual transwell samples, and the dashed line represents the average survival of the autochthonous microbiota transplantation normalized to 1; error bars represent 95% confidence intervals. Mann–Whitney U statistics, °p < 0.1, *p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01, and **** p < 0.0001. Data available at [26] in folder Fig_6.
