Microorganisms associated with insects can have substantial impact on diverse life‐history traits of their hosts. This opens the opportunity to modify the insects’ microbiome to support and improve insect performance, e.g. for insects used in biological control and breeding for food and feed. For this special issue, we have invited a range of contributors that explore the various aspects of the association of insects and their microbes.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
