However, tions when compared to Costa Rican populations, and the complex and fragile equilibrium of native species that samples from Gala ´pagos Islands and mainland is threatened by invasive species, among which is one Ecuador (Guayaquil) clustered in a single group and of the most successful ants in the world, the tropical all share a single mtDNA haplotype.

We characterized the Bayesian Computation favoured a scenario assuming genetic structure and diversity of populations of S. that populations from Gala ´pagos Islands diverged geminata in the Galapagos Islands and unravelled the from mainland Ecuador. The city of Guyaquil, an archipelago colonization by combining Bayesian obligatory hub for tourism and trade, could act as a clustering methods and coalescent-based scenario bridgehead. testing.
