Abstract
<jats:title>ABSTRACT</jats:title> <jats:p>The horizontal transfer of the bacterium <jats:italic>Wolbachia pipientis</jats:italic> between invertebrate hosts hinges on the ability of <jats:italic>Wolbachia</jats:italic> to adapt to new intracellular environments. The experimental transfer of <jats:italic>Wolbachia</jats:italic> between distantly related host species often results in the loss of infection, presumably due to an inability of <jats:italic>Wolbachia</jats:italic> to adapt quickly to the new host. To examine the process of adaptation to a novel host, we transferred a life-shortening <jats:italic>Wolbachia</jats:italic> strain, <jats:italic>w</jats:ital...
