Parabiotic associations between tropical ants: equal partnership or parasitic exploitation?

Menzel, Florian and Blüthgen, Nico (2010):
Parabiotic associations between tropical ants: equal partnership or parasitic exploitation?
79, In: Journal of Animal Ecology, (1), pp. 71-81. [Article]

Abstract

The huge diversity of symbiotic associations among animals and/or plants comprises both mutualisms and parasitisms. Most symbioses between social insect species, however, involve social parasites, while mutual benefits have been only suspected for some parabiotic associations - two colonies that share a nest.
