Testing the predictive value of functional traits in diverse ant communities


By: K. Drager*, M. Rivera*, J. Gibson*, S. Ruzi n, P. Hanisch*, R. Achury*, A. Suarez*

author keywords: dN; Formicidae; morphology; phylogeny; stable isotopes; trophic position
TL;DR: Overall body size, relative eye position, and scape length was found to be informative for predicting diet/trophic position in these communities, albeit with relatively weak predictive values, and trophic position was negatively correlated with body size and positively correlated with sensory traits.

Seed fate in ant-mediated dispersal: Seed dispersal effectiveness in the Ectatomma ruidum (Formicidae)-Zanthoxylum ekmanii (Rutaceae) system

Ruzi, S. A., & Suarez, A. V. (2022, April 15). BIOTROPICA.

By: S. Ruzi* & A. Suarez*

author keywords: Barro Colorado Island; directed dispersal; myrmecochory; Neotropical pioneer tree species; Panama
TL;DR: Overall, E. ruidum may help fine tune deposition location, incorporating seeds into the topsoil, though few seeds will likely emerge if soil bioturbation is low. (via Semantic Scholar)

Can variation in seed removal patterns of Neotropical pioneer tree species be explained by local ant community composition?


TL;DR: The results suggest ant communities vary over relatively small spatial scales but exhibit a high degree of functional redundancy in terms of seed removal services provided for Neotropical pioneer tree species. (via Semantic Scholar)

Testing how different narrative perspectives achieve communication objectives and goals in online natural science videos

PLOS ONE, 16(10).

By: S. Ruzi n, N. Lee* & A. Smith n

MeSH headings : Adolescent; Adult; Aged; Aged, 80 and over; Biological Science Disciplines / methods; Education, Distance / methods; Female; Humans; Male; Middle Aged; Narration; Speech Perception; Surveys and Questionnaires; Young Adult
TL;DR: Manipulating the narrative perspective of the source of a single online video communication effort is effective at impacting immediate objective outcomes related to spokesperson perceptions, but whether those objectives can positively influence long-term goals requires more investigation.
