Data from: Extreme polyandry aids the establishment of invasive populations of a social insect

Guiling Ding, Huanli Xu, Benjamin P. Oldroyd & Rosalyn S. Gloag
Although monandry is believed to have facilitated the evolution of eusociality, many highly eusocial insects have since evolved extreme polyandry. The transition to extreme polyandry was likely driven by the benefits of within-colony genetic variance to task specialization and/or disease resistance, but the extent to which it confers secondary benefits, once evolved, is unclear. Here we investigate the consequences of extreme polyandry on the invasive potential of the Asian honey bee, Apis cerana. In honey...
