Chemically based interactions and nutritional ecology of Labidus praedator in an agroecosystem adjacent to a gallery forest



Chemically based interactions and nutritional ecology of Labidus praedator in an agroecosystem adjacent to a gallery forest



Revista Brasileira De Zoologia: 4, 674-681



New World army ants species have an important role in structuring invertebrate communities. <i>Labidus praedator</i> (Fr. Smith, 1858) is a generalist top predator that can reduce pest densities in agroecosystems. The aim of this study was to describe behavioral attributes, diet composition and interspecific interactions of the ant <i>L. praedator</i>. We searched for army ant raids using standardized trail-walk surveys and plotted army ants raids positions on an aerial image.
