Genotypes at 10 microsatellite loci for 8 perennial, polygyne colonies of Vespula squamosa

Carl Dyson
Many highly social species show plasticity in their social structure in response to different environmental conditions. For example, typical colonies of the yellowjacket wasp Vespula squamosa are headed by a single reproductive queen and survive for only a single season. However, in warmer climates, V. squamosa colonies sometimes persist for multiple years and can grow to extremely large size. We used genetic markers to understand patterns of reproduction and recruitment within these perennial colonies. We...
