We performed a molecular survey of colonies of the termite Reticulitermes flavipes in order to identify colonies which had undergone mergers with one or more colonies of conspecifics, and to provide a detailed description of the breeding system within such fused colonies. By combining the results of previously published studies on R. flavipes with unpublished work undertaken for other studies, we compiled a database of 354 colonies from which we identified eight (2.3%) colonies which appeared… CONTINUE READING
