Data from: Genetic evidence for landscape effects on dispersal in the army ant Eciton burchellii

Thomas W. Soare, Anjali Kumar, Kerry A. Naish & Sean O'Donnell
Inhibited dispersal, leading to reduced gene flow, threatens populations with inbreeding depression and local extinction. Fragmentation may be especially detrimental to social insects because inhibited gene flow has important consequences for cooperation and competition within and among colonies. Army ants have winged males and permanently wingless queens; these traits imply male-biased dispersal. However, army ant colonies are obligately nomadic and have the potential to traverse landscapes. Eciton burchellii, the most regularly nomadic army ant, is...
