Effects of environmental variation and livestock grazing on ant community structure in temperate eucalypt woodlands
1. Grazing by livestock is a major ecological disturbance, with potential effects on vegetation, soil, and insect fauna. Ants are a diverse and functionally important insect group with many associations with the ground layer, yet recent global syntheses question the importance of grazing effects on ant communities relative to vegetation or soil. 2. We examined the effects of vegetation, soil and grazing on the whole ant community, ant functional groups, and abundant species in temperate...[Show more]
