Invasion of polygyne fire ants decimates native ants and disrupts arthropod community

, : Invasion of polygyne fire ants decimates native ants and disrupts arthropod community. Ecology (Washington D C): 716: 2095-2106

The ecological impact of an invasion of polygyne Solenopsis invicta on formicids and other surface-active arthropods was studied in the field in Texas, USA. Arthropod abundance and species richness were assessed using a combination of baits, pitfall traps and litter samples. The invasion decimated the indigenous ant fauna, with competitive replacement appearing to be the primary mechanism behind this effect.
