The accessory elements of bacteria, transposons, plasmids and phages provide tillable as well as fertile ground for studying the ecology and (co)evolution of parasite and symbiont interactions with their hosts. The recent climate has yielded a bountiful harvest of delicious evolutionary food for thought.
