2010 journal article

Canopy and litter ant assemblages share similar climate-species density relationships

BIOLOGY LETTERS, 6(6), 769–772.

author keywords: Formicidae; species richness; global diversity gradients
MeSH headings : Animals; Ants / physiology; Ecosystem; Linear Models; Models, Biological; Population Density; Species Specificity; Trees; Tropical Climate; Weather
TL;DR: It appears that canopy and litter ant assemblages share a common abundance–diversity relationship influenced by similar but not identical climatic drivers. (via Semantic Scholar)

2010 journal article

The ecology of a keystone seed disperser, the ant Rhytidoponera violacea

Journal of Insect Science, 10.

By: D. Lubertazzi n, M. Lubertazzi*, N. McCoy n, A. Gove*, J. Majer* & R. Dunn n

Contributors: D. Lubertazzi n, M. Aliberti Lubertazzi*, N. McCoy n, A. Gove*, J. Majer* & R. Dunn n

MeSH headings : Animals; Ants / physiology; Appetitive Behavior / physiology; Diet; Nesting Behavior / physiology; Observation; Seed Dispersal / physiology; Western Australia
TL;DR: R. violacea nesting habits, foraging behavior, and other life history characteristics complement their role as a mutualist that interacts with the seeds of many plant species. (via Semantic Scholar)

2009 journal article

Ants Sow the Seeds of Global Diversification in Flowering Plants

PLOS ONE, 4(5).

By: S. Lengyel n, A. Gove*, A. Latimer*, J. Majer* & R. Dunn n

Contributors: S. Lengyel n, A. Gove*, A. Latimer*, J. Majer* & R. Dunn n

MeSH headings : Animals; Ants / physiology; Biodiversity; Ecosystem; Magnoliopsida / classification; Magnoliopsida / growth & development; Phylogeny; Seeds / growth & development
TL;DR: Myrmecochory provides the best example to date for a consistent effect of any mutualism on large-scale diversification in angiosperm plants, and diversification rates were substantially higher in ant-dispersed plants than in their non-myRMecochorous relatives. (via Semantic Scholar)

Climatic drivers of hemispheric asymmetry in global patterns of ant species richness

ECOLOGY LETTERS, 12(4), 324–333.

By: R. Dunn n, D. Agosti, A. Andersen*, X. Arnan*, C. Bruhl*, X. Cerda*, A. Ellison*, B. Fisher* ...

Contributors: R. Dunn n, D. Agosti, A. Andersen*, X. Arnan*, C. Bruhl*, X. Cerdá*, A. Ellison*, B. Fisher* ...

author keywords: Biodiversity; climate change; Eocene; Formicidae; latitudinal gradient
MeSH headings : Animals; Ants / genetics; Ants / physiology; Biodiversity; Biological Evolution; Climate
TL;DR: Examining the latitudinal pattern of species richness across 1003 local ant assemblages finds latitudinal asymmetry, with southern hemisphere sites being more diverse than northern hemisphere sites, and the most parsimonious explanation is that greater climate change since the Eocene in the northern than in the southern hemisphere has led to more extinctions in the north with consequent effects on local ant species richness.

2009 journal article

Dispersal traits linked to range size through range location, not dispersal ability, in Western Australian angiosperms

GLOBAL ECOLOGY AND BIOGEOGRAPHY, 18(5), 596–606.

By: A. Gove n, M. Fitzpatrick*, J. Majer* & R. Dunn n

Contributors: A. Gove n, M. Fitzpatrick*, J. Majer* & R. Dunn n

author keywords: Angiosperm diversity; biogeography; dispersal; latitude; myrmecochory; Western Australia
TL;DR: Range size did not vary with dispersal mode (ant versus wind and vertebrate dispersal) or life-form, and instead varied primarily as a function of the biogeographical region in which a species was found, but range placement did vary among dispersal modes. (via Semantic Scholar)
