- The red imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta Buren, 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.
- Moreover, recent genome and transcriptome studies have thoroughly investigated the evolutionary history of this invasive pest and made available genetic tools (i.e. microarray and genome), while setting S. invicta as a model organism for the evolution of castes and polyphenism .
