Glaser, S. M. ; Feitosa, R. M. ; Koch, A. ; Goß, N. ; do Nascimento, F. S. ; Grüter, C.


Tropical ants experience intense intra- and interspecific competition for food sources, which influences their activity pattern and foraging strategies.

Recruitment communication is assumed to help colonies to monopolize and exploit food sources ...
