among microorganisms, and between microorganisms and their multicellular hosts, as important (and previously underappreciated) evolutionary sources of phenotypic novelty. Using compelling examples from insects and other organisms, Moran shows how obligate symbiosis can yield complex evolutionary outcomes, ranging from the emergence of specialized cell types and organs to various developmental mechanisms that regulate the intergenerational continuance of the symbiotic association.
