What is it about?
This study investigates the bacterial communities in the different intestinal compartments of two wood-feeding cockroaches, links them to the respective microenvironmental conditions (pH, hydrogen partial pressure, redox potential), revealing compartment-specific communities, irrespective of host species.
Why is it important?
This study can help us understand how the intestinal microbial community in insects is structured.
