STUDIES of the role of haplodiploidy in the evolution of eusociality have been limited to the Hymenoptera, the only insects known to exhibit both reproductive castes and the haplodiploid genetic system1. Because aculeate Hymenoptera share many other traits that may affect sociality, such as provisioning at nests, powerful flight, mandibulate mouthparts, and stings, it has been difficult to separate the effects of haplodiploidy from other characteristics of this taxonomic group2'3. Here I report… Expand
