Shift in frequency-dependent selection across the life-cycle in obligately interbreeding harvester ant lineages

Abstract

The long-term persistence of hybridogenetic systems, in which one genetic lineage is dependent on another as a sperm host, is paradoxical because they require continual coexistence between ecological competitors. Several species of ants display a social form of hybridogenesis, in which two distinct genetic lineages obligately interbreed to produce sterile… (More)
