Fitness and aging in Cardiocondyla obscurior ant queens

Oettler, Jan ; Schrempf, Alexandra


Easy maintenance, controlled mating and short generation time make Cardiocondyla obscurior an interesting model for social insect aging research. Using this ant we have begun to study the proximate genomic relationship between mating and aging. Although mating in general has a positive effect and results in fertile queens with long life but drastically reduced metabolic rates, mating can also ...
