Light at the end of the tunnel: Integrative taxonom y delimits cryptic species in the Tetramorium caespitum complex (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
Species delimitation is fundamental for many biolog ical studies; its importance extends from regional faunistics over behavioral research to the reconstruction of evolut i nary history. However,Expand

Enforcement of Reproductive Synchrony via Policing in a Clonal Ant
In insect societies, worker policing controls genetic conflicts between individuals and increases colony efficiency. However, disentangling relatedness from colony-level effects is usuallyExpand

The Genome of the Clonal Raider Ant Cerapachys biroi
Social insects are important models for social evolution and behavior. However, in many species, experimental control over important factors that regulate division of labor, such as genotype and age,Expand

Multiple queens means fewer mates
Summary Obligate multiple mating by social insect queens has evolved in some derived clades where higher genetic diversity is likely to enhance colony fitness [1–3]. The rare and derived nature ofExpand

Genetic Distance and Age Affect the Cuticular Chemical Profiles of the Clonal Ant Cerapachys biroi
Although cuticular hydrocarbons (CHCs) have received much attention from biologists because of their important role in insect communication, few studies have addressed the chemical ecology of clonalExpand

Invasive Species: Old Foes Meet Again
Tawny crazy ants are spreading across the southern U.S., replacing one of the most notorious invasive pests, the red imported fire ant. A crucial factor in this process is that tawny crazy ants areExpand

Convergent Evolution: The Genetics of Queen Number in Ants
Large, non-recombining genomic regions underlie the polymorphism in colony queen number in two distantly related ant species. This illustrates that convergence in complex phenotypes can arise viaExpand

Nine novel microsatellite markers for the army ant Simopelta pergandei (subfamily Ponerinae)
Simopelta (subfamily Ponerinae) army ants are specialized predators of other ants in New World tropical forests. Although they show a striking convergence in overall life-history with the well knownExpand
