Description

Solenopsis invicta.png
  • Solenopsis invicta is a notorious invasive species which has caused biodiversity declines, disrupted ecosystem functions and incurred severe socio-economic losses worldwide. The increasing numbers of hypersensitivity reactions to S. invicta sting sequelae represent a public health concern. Recent genome and transcriptome studies have thoroughly investigated the evolutionary history of this invasive pest and made available genetic tools while setting S. invicta as a model organism for the evolution of castes and polyphenism[1][2].
