Table 1 Prevalence of Wolbachia variants in eleven sampled populations of S. invicta. N represents the number of individuals of S. invicta surveyed for Wolbachia. The total number of infected individuals is represented by ninf whereas n wsp and n16S represent the number of individuals for which the wsp and 16S genes, respectively, were sequenced. The data in column "wsp Strains" indicate the Wolbachia variants present in each population (based on wsp sequences) as well as the number of individuals infected with each variant (in parentheses). The number of individuals from each population where mtDNA sequence data were available is also indicated.
