Bacterial Communities of Bartonella-Positive Fleas: Diversity and Community Assembly Patterns▿

By Ryan T. Jones, Katherine F. McCormick and Andrew P. Martin

Abstract

We investigated the bacterial communities of nine Bartonella-positive fleas (n = 6 Oropsylla hirsuta fleas and n = 3 Oropsylla montana fleas), using universal primers, clone libraries, and DNA sequencing. DNA sequences were used to classify bacteria detected in a phylogenetic context, to explore community assembly patterns within individual fleas, and to survey diversity patterns in dominant lineages
