Abstract
ABSTRACT Cardinium bacteria, members of the phylum Cytophaga - Flavobacterium - Bacteroides (CFB), are intracellular bacteria in arthropods that are capable of inducing reproductive abnormalities in their hosts, which include parasitic wasps, mites, and spiders. A high frequency of Cardinium infection was detected in planthoppers (27 out of 57 species were infected).
