Intraspecific aggression in the primitive ant genus Myrmecia



Intraspecific aggression in the primitive ant genus Myrmecia



Insectes Sociaux, 363: 161-172



Intraspecific aggression was studied in colonies of Myrmecia pilosula, M. gulosa, M. brevinoda and M. simillima. Newly-eclosed callow workers were not attacked by workers from other conspecific colonies. Aggression against conspecific alien workers was always greater than aggression against callows.
