An extensive electrophoretic survey of enzyme and protein markers was conducted for a haplodiploid eusocial insect, the red imported fire ant (Solenopsis invicta), and for a diploid communal insect, the eastern tent caterpillar (Malacosoma americanum). This survey resulted in the discovery of 110 electrophoretic loci for S. invicta (15 of which were polymorphic at the 95 per cent level) and 37 electrophoretic loci for M. americanum (seven polymorphic). Expected heterozygosities (mean Hexp±S.E… CONTINUE READING
