The frequencies of two alleles at a cathodal malate dehydrogenase locus in populations of A. rudis were studied in 47 colonies from three localities in Georgia and one in New Jersey. The male gene frequencies of the New Jersey and one Georgia locality differ significantly. All the queens at one Georgia locality were heterozygotes. This genotypic distribution differs strongly from that of the workers, in which approximately equal numbers of heterozygotes and homozygotes were found. The… CONTINUE READING
