Six variable protein loci and one variable ribosomal DNA restriction site were used for an analysis of population structure in five species of Polistes from Texas. A sample-reuse algorithm was developed that estimated FST , FIS , and ø (the coefficient of kinship) from probabilities of identity. Of the four species analyzed in detail only one, Polistes exclamans, had statistically significant values of FST . These values may reflect natural constraints on successful nesting for migrants of this… CONTINUE READING
