Professor Evan Economo and researchers in the Biodiversity and Biocomplexity Unit compared genetic sequences from hundreds species of Pheidole, a group of ants with mysteriously high diversity. They used these sequences to construct a Pheidole evolutionary tree that suggests Pheidole evolved the same way twice, to take over the New World and then the Old World.
