The Coupled Influence of Thermal Physiology and Biotic Interactions on the Distribution and Density of Ant Species along an Elevational Gradient

DIVERSITY-BASEL, 12(12).

By: L. Chick*, J. Lessard*, R. Dunn n & N. Sanders*

author keywords: ants; community structure; physiology; interactions; temperature
TL;DR: The results provide a strong test that biotic interactions drive the distributions and density of species in warm climates, but that environmental filtering predominates at colder, high-elevation sites, and suggest that the responses of species to climate change are likely to be context-dependent and more specifically, geographically-dependent.

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

BIOLOGY LETTERS, 6(6), 769–772.

By: M. Weiser n, N. Sanders*, D. Agosti, A. Andersen*, A. Ellison*, B. Fisher*, H. Gibb*, N. Gotelli* ...

Contributors: M. Weiser n, N. Sanders*, D. Agosti, A. Andersen*, A. Ellison*, B. Fisher*, H. Gibb*, N. Gotelli* ...

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)

Temperature, but not productivity or geometry, predicts elevational diversity gradients in ants across spatial grains

GLOBAL ECOLOGY AND BIOGEOGRAPHY, 16(5), 640–649.

By: N. Sanders*, J. Lessard*, M. Fitzpatrick* & R. Dunn n

Contributors: N. Sanders*, J. Lessard*, M. Fitzpatrick* & R. Dunn n

author keywords: community structure; forests; Formicidae; Great Smoky Mountains National Park; productivity; scale; species richness; temperature; USA
TL;DR: The results suggest that temperature indirectly affects ant species diversity across spatial grains, perhaps by limiting access to resources, and some mechanisms shaping ant diversity gradients are common across scales. (via Semantic Scholar)

The tropical ant mosaic in a primary Bornean rain forest

BIOTROPICA, 39(4), 468–475.

By: D. Davidson*, J. Lessard n, C. Bernau* & S. Cook*

author keywords: Brunei; Camponotus; codominants; Crematogaster; dominance-discovery trade-off; information parasitism; Oecophylla; Polyrhachis; shared territory defense
TL;DR: The densely packed mosaic of spatially territorial, and differentially predatory, taxa in Bornean rain forest likely contributes to spatial variation in ant effects on plant and arthropod communities. (via Semantic Scholar)
