The parapatric sibling ant species Temnothorax nylanderi and T. crassispinus hybridize in the contact zone in the Franconian Jura, Southern Germany. Aim of our study was to investigate the impact of hybridization on colony composition and fitness. We classified colonies as either ‘pure’ or containing hybrids by determining their allozyme pattern at GPI, an enzyme that is fixed for different ...
