PREFACE AND CONTENTS DEAR ACAROLOGISTS CONTENTS This is the 1 st issue of the EURAAC Newsletter. It could also be called an Oldsletter - it was supposed to appear in May 2009 - but the delay in appearance was caused by an unexpected necessary change in co-editorship. Anyway, the co- editorship issue has now been settled and the next issues should appear on time (two times per year in May and November). Spotlight page 3 Forum page 5 MSc & PhD theses page 10 Media page 20 Job openings page 21 Events page 22 The Newsletter comprises six sections: Spotlight, Forum, Theses, Media, Job openings and Events. In the Spotlight section, EURAAC committee members (in this issue a purely subjective selection by Peter Schausberger) highlight three recent (past 6 months) exciting findings on mites or ticks, two of which by European researchers. The Forum section is open to miscellaneous mite- or tick-related announcements or comments. The Theses section introduces recently finished MSc and PhD theses on mites or ticks. The Media section is dedicated to announcements of new books, journals, CDs, videos, and webpages. The Events section announces scientific events of potential acarological interest. Thanks to all contributors who kindly shared their news and informations with us. Please keep on informing us, the Newsletter lives from the contributions of its readers. As a matter of course, contributions are not restricted to Europe but are welcome from all over the world. Please send your contributions to [email protected] . Deadline for news to be included in the 3 rd issue (May 2010) is end of April. The Editors Peter Schausberger + Stefan Peneder 2 EURAAC newsletter 1+2/09

Heredity 102, 413-422 *[email protected] THE EFFECTS OF, AND INTERACTIONS BETWEEN, CARDINIUM AND WOLBACHIA IN THE DOUBLY INFECTED SPIDER MITE BRYOBIA SAROTHAMNI Many arthropods are infected with vertically transmitted, intracellular bacteria manipulating their host's reproduction. Cytoplasmic incompatibility (CI) is commonly observed and is expressed as a reduction in the number of offspring in crosses between infected males and uninfected females (or females infected with a different bacterial strain). CI is often related to the presence of Wolbachia , but recent findings indicate that a second reproductive parasite, Cardinium , is also capable of inducing CI. Although both Wolbachia and
