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, increasing inbreeding, and decreasing gene flow among extant habitat fragments owing to habitat loss and fragmentation. Here we review the genetic data on old-world boreal species of the genus Formica. In Formica ants colonies can have one or several queens (monoand polygyny respectively) and this trait is… CONTINUE READING
