INTRASPECIFIC VARIATION IN ANT SEX-RATIOS AND THE TRIVERS-HARE HYPOTHESIS

Abstract:

Examines worker-controlled sex investments in eusocial Hymenoptera and assume that relatedness asymmetry is variable among colonies and that workers are able to assess the relatedness asymmetry in their own colony. Such "assessing' workers should maximize their inclusive fitness by specializing in the production of the sex to which they are relatively most related, ie colonies whose workers have a relatedness asymmetry below the population average should specialize in males, whereas colonies ...
