Abstract

Queen polymorphism in the non-parasitic ant, Leptothorax spec. A, is most probably genetically mediated by a pair of alleles E/e. E suppresses the development of wings, thoracic structures and ocelli in female larvae. Only ee-larvae may grow to gynomorphic, winged queens, EE- and Ee- larvae develop into intermorphic, wingless queens. The frequency of intermorphic queens varies widely in different ...
