Category: WALS - Wednesday Afternoon Lectures
Runtime: 01:04:53
Description: Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series

Humans are products of their evolutionary history, and ample evidence suggests that humans and their microbial communities have coevolved. Thus, an understanding of the patterns of animal-microbe evolution promises to provide insight into the most critical features of these relationships. For instance, the discovery of characteristics that are conserved over evolutionary time is likely to reveal the basic principles underlying the establishment and persistence of these cross-domain symbioses. This presentation will explore: 1) the trends in host-microbe interaction across the animal kingdom, 2) the evidence that such alliances have driven the evolutionary trajectory of the partners, and 3) how studying a diversity of symbiotic models can reveal common themes of how these relationships function.
