Data from: Androgenesis is a maternal trait in the invasive ant Wasmannia auropunctata

Olivier Rey, Benoit Facon, Julien Foucaud, Anne Loiseau & Arnaud Estoup
Androgenesis is the production of an offspring containing exclusively the nuclear genome of the fathering male, via the maternal eggs. This unusual mating system is generally considered as a male trait, giving to androgenetic males a substantial fitness advantage over their sexually reproducing relatives. We here provide the first empirical study of the evolutionary outcomes of androgenesis in a haplo-diploid organism: the invasive ant Wasmannia auropunctata. Some of the populations of this species have a...
