Filamentous fungi found on foundress queens of leaf-cutting ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
(Journal of Applied Entomology, 2010-05-01) [Artigo]
Queens of the leaf-cutting ant species Atta laevigata and Atta capiguara were collected soon after their mating flight and maintained in the laboratory until death. Ant corpses showing signs of contamination by insect ...
Internal Architecture and Population Size of Acromyrmex subterraneus molestans (Hymenoptera, Formicidae) Nests: Comparison Between a Rural and an Urban Area
(Sociobiology, 2011-01-01) [Artigo]
Ant nests vary in their depth and internal complexity. They can be shallow or reach seven meters down into the soil, with many chambers connected by tunnels. In the case of leaf-cutting ants, the nest protects the colony ...
Protein content of leaf-cutting ant queens before the nuptial flight and during the post-claustral phase
(Revista Brasileira de Entomologia, 2014-12-01) [Artigo]
Protein content of leaf-cutting ant queens before the nuptial flight and during the post-claustral phase. This study evaluated the crude protein content of queens of Atta sexdens before the nuptial flight and after the ...
Behavioral Response of the Leafcutter Ant, Atta sexdens rubropilosa (Hymenoptera, Formicidae), to Components of Citrus Pulp
(Sociobiology, 2010-01-01) [Artigo]
Citrus pulp is an attractive substrate for dicotyledon-cutting ants, due to its physical and chemical properties. In this study, the behavioral response of Atta sexdens rubropilosa workers to different components of the ...
Spatio-Temporal Dynamics of Foraging Networks in the Grass-Cutting Ant Atta bisphaerica Forel, 1908 (Formicidae, Attini)
(Plos One, 2016-01-11) [Artigo]
Foraging networks are a key element for ant colonies because they facilitate the flow of resources from the environment to the nest and they allow the sharing of information among individuals. Here we report the results ...
