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)

Is It Easy to Be Urban? Convergent Success in Urban Habitats among Lineages of a Widespread Native Ant

PLoS ONE, 5(2), e9194.

By: S. Menke n, W. Booth n, R. Dunn n, C. Schal n, E. Vargo n & J. Silverman n

TL;DR: The results indicate that T. sessile has colonized urban habitats repeatedly and appears to do so using life history strategies already present in more natural populations, and polygynous colony structure is a highly plastic trait across habitat, clade, and haplotype. (via Semantic Scholar)

Characterizing and predicting species distributions across environments and scales: Argentine ant occurrences in the eye of the beholder

GLOBAL ECOLOGY AND BIOGEOGRAPHY, 18(1), 50–63.

author keywords: Argentine ant; California; ecological niche models; GIS; invasion; Linepithema humile; model averaging; spatial grain; species distribution models
TL;DR: The aim of the study is to jointly quantify how issues relating to region and scale affect ENM predictions using an economically important and ecologically damaging invasive species, the Argentine ant. (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.
