Bacterial symbionts of termite gut flagellates: cospeciation and nitrogen fixation in the gut of dry-wood termites

The subject of this thesis is the symbiosis between flagellates and bacteria in the gut of dry-wood termites (Kalotermitidae). In a series of studies, the evolution of devescovinid flagellates and their bacterial symbionts was elucidated, and the physiological basis of the symbiosis was investigated...
