Behavioural and chemical mechanisms behind a Mediterranean ant-ant association

Menzel, Florian and Woywod, Martin and Blüthgen, Nico and Schmitt, Thomas (2010):
Behavioural and chemical mechanisms behind a Mediterranean ant-ant association.
In: Ecological Entomology, pp. 711-720, 35, (6), [Online-Edition: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1365-2311.2010....],

Abstract

Interspecific competition among ants is common, and so is competitive exclusion among dominant ant species. In contrast, specific associations between non-parasitic ant species are rare, especially in the temperate zones. As an exception, the subordinate ant Camponotus lateralis frequently co-occurs with the dominant Crematogaster scutellaris but rarely with other dominant ants.
