Ant diversity and abundance along an elevational gradient in the Philippines



Ant diversity and abundance along an elevational gradient in the Philippines



Biotropica 29(3): 349-363



Ant communities were surveyed in February and March 1988 along an elevational gradient in the Philippines extending from lowland dipterocarp forest (250 m elevation) to mossy forest (1750 m). Standardized pitfall trapping in arboreal and terrestrial microhabitats at seven sites yielded 51 species. Collecting by hand at five of the sites yielded 48 species. The two methods produced substantially different assemblages, with only 22 species (29%) taken in common.
