2020 journal article

Ground-Dwelling Invertebrate Abundance Positively Related to Volume of Logging Residues in the Southern Appalachians, USA

FORESTS, 11(11).

By: A. Boggs n, C. Moorman n, D. Hazel n, C. Greenberg*, D. Sorger n & C. Sorenson n

author keywords: ants; arachnids; bioenergy; downed wood; invertebrates; insects; logging residue; woody biomass
TL;DR: Woody debris in harvested sites is important for the conservation of a majority of the taxa studied, which is likely because of the unique microclimate offered near/under woody debris. (via Semantic Scholar)

2018 journal article

Taxon cycle predictions supported by model-based inference in Indo-Pacific trap-jaw ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae: Odontomachus)

MOLECULAR ECOLOGY, 27(20), 4090–4107.

By: P. Matos-Maravi*, N. Matzke*, F. Larabee*, R. Clouse*, W. Wheeler*, D. Sorger n, A. Suarez*, M. Janda*

author keywords: biogeography; diversification; Formicidae; insect; Melanesia; taxon cycle
MeSH headings : Animals; Ants / classification; Ants / genetics; Ecosystem; Phylogeny; Phylogeography
TL;DR: There is strong evidence that habitat shifts from forest interior to open and disturbed habitats increased macroevolutionary dispersal rate and the phylogenetic predictions outlined in this study can be used in future work to evaluate the relative weights of neutral and non‐neutral processes in historical biogeography and community ecology.

2018 journal article

The ecology of insect–yeast relationships and its relevance to human industry

Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, 285(1875), 20172733.

By: A. Madden n, M. Epps*, T. Fukami*, R. Irwin n, J. Sheppard n, D. Sorger n, R. Dunn n

Contributors: A. Madden n, M. Epps*, T. Fukami*, R. Irwin n, J. Sheppard n, D. Sorger n, R. Dunn n

author keywords: diffuse mutualism; dispersal; Ascomycota
MeSH headings : Animals; Ascomycota / physiology; Biological Evolution; Ecosystem; Food Industry; Humans; Insecta / microbiology; Plant Nectar / metabolism; Symbiosis
TL;DR: This work proposes a ‘dispersal–encounter hypothesis' whereby yeasts are dispersed by insects between ephemeral, spatially disparate sugar resources, and insects, in turn, obtain the benefits of an honest signal from yeasts for the sugar resources. (via Semantic Scholar)

2017 journal article

A global database of ant species abundances

ECOLOGY, 98(3), 883–884.

author keywords: abundance; ants; database; disturbance; Formicidae; geo-referenced; habitat; local assemblage; ccurrence; pitfall trap; Winkler trap
MeSH headings : Animals; Ants / classification; Ants / physiology; Databases, Factual; Ecology; Ecosystem
TL;DR: Comprehensive species abundance data of more than 2,693 species and 7,953 morphospecies from local assemblages collected at 4,212 locations around the world is presented to test relationships between assemblage structure and environmental and biogeographic factors. (via Semantic Scholar)

2017 journal article

Outnumbered: a new dominant ant species with genetically diverse supercolonies in Ethiopia

INSECTES SOCIAUX, 64(1), 141–147.

By: D. Sorger n, W. Booth*, A. Eshete*, M. Lowman* & M. Moffett*

author keywords: Aggression; Church forest; mtDNA; Cytochrome oxidase I; Invasive ant syndrome; Recognition; Unicolonial
TL;DR: The species is native to this region, though expanding its range locally into areas of human disturbance, where it is exploding in numbers, and may represent a novel system to study the evolution and spread of supercolonies in ants. (via Semantic Scholar)

2014 review

A review of the Nearctic Odontomachus (Hymenoptera: Formicidae: Ponerinae) with a treatment of the males

[Review of ]. ZOOTAXA, 3802(4), 515–552.

By: J. Macgown, B. Boudinot, M. Deyrup & D. Sorger

author keywords: taxonomy; trap-jaw ants; alien species; invasive; identification; keys; genitalia
MeSH headings : Animals; Atlantic Ocean; Gastropoda / anatomy & histology; Gastropoda / classification; Gastropoda / ultrastructure; Hermaphroditic Organisms / classification; Indian Ocean; Microscopy, Electron, Scanning; Pacific Ocean; Phylogeny
TL;DR: This represents the first study of species-level variation in Odontomachus male genitalia, and one of the first of such studies of the Ponerinae for any biogeographic region. (via Semantic Scholar)
