Figure 5: Vertically transmitted symbionts have smaller genomes.

From: The evolution of host-symbiont dependence

Figure 5

Each data point represents the genome size for the symbiont in a unique host–symbiont combination. The horizontal bars represent mean genome sizes for each transmission mode. Horizontal: Nsymbioses=13 and Ndatapoints=125; vertical: Nsymbioses=55 and Ndatapoints=253.
