Data from: Macro- and microgeographic genetic structure in an ant species with alternative reproductive tactics in sexuals

Susanne Foitzik, Markus H. Rüger, Ilka M. Kureck & Dirk Metzler
The genetic structure of social insect populations is influenced by their social organisation and dispersal modes. The ant Hypoponera opacior shows diverse reproductive behaviours with regular cycles of outbreeding via winged sexuals and inbreeding via within-nest mating wingless sexuals that reproduce by budding. This unusual life cycle should be reflected in the genetic population structure and we studied this on different scales using microsatellites. On a macrogeographic scale, populations were considerably structured and migration rates...
