A native ant armed to limit the spread of the Argentine ant
Argentine ants (Linepithema humile) usually actively displace native ants through a combination of rapid recruitment, high numerical dominance and intense aggressive fights. However, in some cases,Expand

Different behavioural strategies among seven highly invasive ant species
Ants figure prominently among the worst invasive species because of their enormous ecological and economic impacts. However, it remains to be investigated which species would be behaviourallyExpand

Discovery–dominance trade-off among widespread invasive ant species
Ants are among the most problematic invasive species. They displace numerous native species, alter ecosystem processes, and can have negative impacts on agriculture and human health. In part, theirExpand

A proactive–reactive syndrome affects group success in an ant species
Social insects have been particularly evolutionarily successful: they dominate terrestrial ecosystems all over the globe. Their success stems from their social organization, where one or a fewExpand

Invasions of ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in light of global climate change
Climate change and biological invasions are among the greatest threats to biodiversity, and their impacts might increase by the end of this century. Among invasive species, ants are a prominent groupExpand

Variation in the level of aggression, chemical and genetic distance among three supercolonies of the Argentine ant in Europe
In their invasive ranges, Argentine ant populations often form one geographically vast supercolony, genetically and chemically uniform within which there is no intraspecific aggression. Here weExpand

Differences in behavioural traits among native and introduced colonies of an invasive ant
Identifying the factors that promote the success of biological invasions is a key pursuit in ecology. To date, the link between animal personality and invasiveness has rarely been studied. Here, weExpand

Where and how Argentine ant (Linepithema humile) spreads in Corsica?
The Argentine ant, Linepithema humile (Dolichoderinae), is one of the most widespread invasive ant species in the world. When established in optimal habitat, this species usually excludes most otherExpand

Competitive dominance in the organisation of Mediterranean ant communities
1. Competition by dominant species is thought to be key to structuring ant communities. However, recent findings suggest that the effect of dominant species on communities is less pronounced thanExpand
