Do ants drive speciation in aphids? A possible case of ant‐driven speciation in the aphid genus Stomaphis Walker (Aphidoidea, Lachninae)
Ecological divergence is an accepted mode of speciation in phytophagous insects such as aphids. Adaptations of ancestral populations to various feeding locations on a plant seem to be a promoted modeExpand
