Aphids enter a symbiotic relationship with bacteria which holds influence on their ecological characteristics. Although widespread in nature, investigation on their symbiotic relationship is yet to go on full-fledged. Both the obligate and facultative endosymbionts affect the life history traits of the aphids. I discuss the beneficial effects that the endosymbionts provide to their hosts and point out the questions based on which research can proceed further with respect to aphid- bacteria interactions. I finally conclude with some questions on this aspect and by pointing out the avenues which we can work on to develop a deepened insight of the evolutionary ecological traits.
