Relatedness and inbreeding in a French population of the unicolonial ant Iridomyrmex humilis (Mayr)

Insectes Sociaux, 392: 195-200
Relatedness and inbreeding in a French population of the unicolonial ant Iridomyrmex humilis (Mayr)
Samples of Iridomyrmex humilis were collected from the Mediterranean coast of France in 1991 and were analysed using allozyme electrophoresis. The loci peptidase and glucosephosphate isomerase were found to be stainable and polymorphic. Both revealed an estimated relatedness in females taken from the same nest that was close to zero, which is stated to be a consequence of the strong polygyny in this species.
