Soldiers initiate foraging activities in the subterranean termite, Heterotermes tenuis
(Univ Arizona, 2008-01-09)
Caste polyethism has been recorded in some termite species, however the foraging behavior of subterranean termites remains poorly known. Heterotermes tenuis Hagen (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) is a subterranean termite that ...
Nymphs in foraging populations of Coptotermes gestroi (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
(Brill Academic Publishers, 2011-01-01)
Food searching activity by subterranean termites involves workers, soldiers and nymphs. The present study was carried out for elucidating aspects of nymph foraging behavior in Brazil where the species Coptotermes gestroi ...
SPATIAL-ORGANIZATION OF FORAGING ACTIVITY AND COLONIZATION BY COLONY EMIGRATION IN THE PHARAOH ANT, MONOMORIUM-PHARAONIS
(Gustav Fischer Verlag Jena, 1993-08-01)
Using food bait stations and colony trap nests, the spatial relation between the foraging activity of established colonies of the polygynous and unicolonial exotic pharaoh's ant, Monomorium pharaonis, and colonization by ...
Foraging ants trade off further for faster: use of natural bridges and trunk trail permanency in carpenter ants
Diet and Spatial Pattern of Foraging in Ectatomma opaciventre (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in an Anthropic Area
(California State University, 2011-01-01)
Ectatomma opaciventre (Formicidae: Ectatomminae) presents an individual foraging strategy in the epigeal stratum. It is a generalist predator, collecting a wide variety of live or recently dead arthropods. The objective ...
Estimates of Foraging Population and Territory of Heterotermes tenuis Colonies using Mark-Release-Recapture (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
Heterotermes tenuis is an important economic pest in São Paulo state. Foraging populations of three field colonies of H. tenuis located on a University campus (UNESP, Rio Claro, SP, Brazil) were characterized. Foraging ...
A convenient trip: an analysis of the impact of Hitchhiker ants on forager transport rates

Phylogenetic analysis of standard metabolic rate of snakes: a new proposal for the understanding of interspecific variation in feeding behavior
(Springer Heidelberg, 2018)
The current proposal about the variation of standard metabolic rates (SMR) in snakes predicts that SMR is influenced by the feeding frequency (frequent or infrequent feeders). However, feeding frequency in snakes is poorly ...
Foraging behavior of the Restinga Tyrannulet (Phylloscartes Kronei) (Aves, Tyrannidae)
(Neotropical Ornithological Soc, Usgs Patuxent Wildlife Research Ctr, 2011-01-01)
This study was conducted at Ilha Comprida (24 degrees 20'-25 degrees 03'S; 47 degrees 25'-47 degrees 55'W), São Paulo state, Brazil, in areas of restinga forest between August 2008 and July 2009. A total of 613 foraging ...
Foraging activity of Trachymyrmex fuscus (hymenoptera: formicidae) in a degraded area
Two Trachymyrmex fuscus nests were observed between 2001 and 2002 in order to analyze the ant's foraging activity and the substrate collected by workers in an area modified by human activity. The analysis of results ...
