From: Genetic clusters and sex-biased gene flow in a unicolonial Formica ant

Bois de Peney 20 0.054 ± 0.017 0.130 ± 0.019 0.149 ± 0.019

  1. rnestmates (cluster) is the relatedness among nestmates with respect to allele frequencies in the cluster (± standard error). rnestmates (population) or rclustermates (population) is the relatedness among nestmates or clustermates with respect to allele frequencies in the population. n is the number of nests. Estimates significantly greater than zero are in bold.
