Polyandry and allele frequency differences between the sexes in the ant Formica aquilonia
Genetic mother-offspring analyses based on six enzyme gene loci show that about 60 per cent of the females of the mound-building red wood ant Formica aquilonia mate with several males. The number ofExpand

Evolution of the Zfx and Zfy genes: rates and interdependence between the genes.
A phylogenetic analysis of sex-chromosomal zinc-finger genes (Zfx and Zfy) indicates that the genes have not evolved completely independently since their initial separation. The sequence similaritiesExpand

Larger genetic differences within africans than between Africans and Eurasians.
The worldwide pattern of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) variation is of great interest to human geneticists, population geneticists, and evolutionists, but remains incompletely understood. WeExpand

Genetic population structure and dispersal patterns in Formica ants : a review
Human impact on boreal forests has been extensive during a fairly short evolutionary time scale. Character species of boreal forests, such as Formica ants, may face loss of genetic diversity,Expand
