Convergent evolution of the army ant syndrome and congruence in big-data phylogenetics [article]

Marek L Borowiec
2017 bioRxiv   pre-print
To address this question I generated data from 2,166 loci and a comprehensive taxon sampling for a phylogenetic investigation.  ...  Most analyses show strong support for convergent evolution of the army ant syndrome in the Old and New World but certain relationships are sensitive to analytics.  ...  presented here reveals that the army ant syndrome can be viewed as both an example of long-term evolutionary stasis and a remarkable case of convergent evolution.  ...

Here, we propose and explore two complementary methods for quantifying fission-fusion dynamics, using olive baboons ( Papio anubis ) as a case study.  ...  Project results will help to understand whether the macaques' dispersed presence in the area of karst formations, which is hardly accessible by humans, is an ideal condition for the survival of the species  ...  For Dorylus and Pachycondyla ant foraging tools, we investigate whether availability of these insect species at more than a dozen different survey sites influences the likelihood that the chimpanzees will  ...
