Abstract (English)

Hymenopterans generally exhibit a haplo-diploid sex determination mechanism, in which females are produced by sexual reproduction and are diploid and males are produced parthenogenetically and are haploid. In a small number of ant species, workers are able to produce diploid female offspring parthenogenetically from unfertilized eggs, which is termed thelytoky. One of these species, the ponerine ...

In einer kleinen Anzahl von Ameisenarten sind Arbeiterinnen in der Lage diploiden weiblichen Nachwuchs parthenogenetisch aus ...
