Network analyses of a global Hemiptera-phytoplasma-plant biological interactions database

Valeria Trivellone, Cesar O. Flores Garcia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A recently published global Hemiptera-phytoplasma-plant database was analyzed using graph theory and network statistics, providing a preliminary meta-analysis of host-phytoplasma associations worldwide. Preliminary results showed that Hemiptera-phytoplasma (HP) and plant-phytoplasma networks have low density and HP associations also show a modular and nested structure, suggesting that different phytoplasmas occupy exclusive ecological compartments of association with their hosts.
