The book provides details on separating genera from those which are superficially similar and thoseWhich are commonly confused, and there is an introduction to the more important research papers investigating each group.
The Higher Classification of the Ant Subfamily Ponerinae (Hymenoptera: Formicidae), with a Review of Ponerine Ecology and Behavior.
The tribal and generic classification of the diverse ant subfamily Ponerinae (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) is revised to reflect recent molecular phylogenetic information and a reappraisal of ponerine
REVIEW OF THE DOLICHODERINE ANT GENUS IRIDOMYRMEX MAYR WITH DESCRIPTIONS OF THREE NEW GENERA (HYMENOPTERA: FORMICIDAE)
TLDR
The generic placement of species assigned to the dolichoderine ant genus Iridomyrmex Mayr is reviewed, and three new genera are described and several new combinations are created, resulting in numerous new combinations.
Phylogeny and taxonomy of the Prenolepis genus‐group of ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
TLDR
A phylogeny of the Prenolepis genus‐group was inferred using DNA sequence data from five genes and two genera were not recovered as monophyletic by the molecular data, and the implications of this result are discussed.
Monograph of Nylanderia (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) of the World: An introduction to the systematics and biology of the genus
TLDR
The systematics and biology of Nylanderia are discussed in a global context, and a diagnosis is given, and several morphological features, which are considered putative synapomorphies for the genus are provided.
Higher classification of the ant subfamilies Aneuretinae, Dolichoderinae and Formicinae (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
Abstract. An analysis of the cladistic relationships among the ant subfamilies Aneuretinae, Dolichoderinae and Formicinae demonstrates the monophyly of these three subfamilies, and places
Review of the ant genus Aenictus (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in Australia with notes on A. ceylonicus (Mayr)
TLDR
The Australian members of the ant genus Aenictus are revised and the following changes are proposed for non-Australian species: A. aitkenii Forel is removed from synonymy with A. aratus and raised to full species, A. orientalis (Karavaiev) is removed, and A. ceylonicus (Mayr) is proposed.
Revision of the ant genus Iridomyrmex (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
