Different effects of temperature on foraging activity schedules in sympatric Myrmecia ants

Jayatilaka, Piyankarie; Narendra, Ajay; Reid, Samuel; Cooper, Paul; Zeil, Jochen

Description

Animals avoid temperatures that constrain foraging by restricting activity to specific times of the day or year. However, because temperature alters the availability of food resources, it is difficult to separate temperature- dependent effects on foraging and the occupation of temporal niches. By studying two congeneric, sympatric Myrmeciaants we isolated the effect of temperature and investigated whether temperature affects foraging schedules and causes the two ants to be active at distinct...[Show more]
