(Blackwell Publishing LtdOxfordInglaterra, 2003)
Natural history of the Neotropical arboreal ant, Odontomachus hastatus: Nest sites, foraging schedule, and diet
(Univ ArizonaTucsonEUA, 2012)
Activity of Ricinus communis (Euphorbiaceae) and ricinine against the leaf-cutting ant Atta sexdens rubropilosa (Hymenoptera : Formicidae) and the symbiotic fungus Leucoagaricus gongylophorus
The focus of this study was the identification of compounds from plant extracts for use in crop protection. This paper reports on the toxic activity of fractions of leaf extracts of Ricinus communis L (Euphorbiaceae) and ...
Effect of constituents of the foliar wax of Didymopanax vinosum on the foraging activity of the leaf-cutting ant Atta sexdens rubropilosa
Leaf epicuticular waxes may affect substrate selection by leaf-cutting ants, and host recognition by several phytophagous insects. The influence of the crude epicuticular wax of Didymopanax vinosum E. March. (Araliaceae), ...
Foraging activity pattern and herbivory rates of the grass-cutting ant Atta capiguara
The objective of this study was to investigate the seasonal change in the pattern of foraging activity in the leaf-cutting ant Atta capiguara and to provide an estimate of the annual herbivory rate of its colonies. We ...
Seasonal Patterns in Activity Rhythm and Foraging Ecology in the Neotropical Forest-Dwelling Ant, Odontomachus chelifer (Formicidae: Ponerinae)

Spatial analysis of foraging activity of the Polygynous Red Imported Fire Ant Solenopsis invicta (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
(External Scientific Advisory Committe (ESAC), 2016)
Communication or toxicity: What is the effect of cycloheximide on leaf-cutting ant workers?
Leaf-cutting ants are insects that use plant material to grow fungus from which they feed. These fungus-growing ants perform various behavioral activities to establish an environment conducive to the fungus. Among these ...
