Population-genetic structure and sex-allocation ratios were investigated for the ant Messor aciculatus, a species that conducts mass nuptial flights. An electrophoretic survey on two polymorphic loci revealed excessive homozygosities in two populations. Because inbreeding inside nests does not occur, the heterozygote deficiency may result from population subdivision rather than assortative inbreeding during nuptial flights. Assuming no inbreeding, a simulation based on the observed genotype… CONTINUE READING
