i5K Comments for Aphaenogaster senilis
Aphaenogaster is a common genus worldwide. Like A. rudis in the US, A. senilis is a main ant seed disperser in western Europe. It is also a major aphid predator, be involved in biological pest control research programs. Colonies are easily produced in captivity, a rare fact in ants. Chemically, it is interesting for its Alkaloid secretions. Most importantly, it is a preferred biological model to study the developmental genetics of worker-queen polymorphism. Raphael Boulay
