The peculiarities of behaviour and organization of taking care of aphids while trophobiosis were studied in ant species predominant in milti-species communities (Formica polyctena Forst, F. aquilonia Yarr., and F. pratensis Retz.). "Professional specialisation" with distinct division of segregation functions of aphid colony protection and honeydew(More)
The classical and contemporary literature devoted to symbiotic relationships between ants and aphids was analyzed. The most studied issues are: the totality of morphological and anatomical adaptations of partners to symbiosis, different degrees of aphids myrmecophilia, benefits and costs of insects during interaction. A lot of issues are still discussible.(More)
Honeydew collectors of Formica pratensis taken from the nature (control) and laboratory-reared “naïve” ants, which had never met either “mature” workers or aphids and aphidophages, were observed during their interactions with various aphid enemies: adults and larvae of ladybirds and lacewings, and larvae of syrphid flies. The naïve ants were significantly(More)
The ability to recognize aphidophages is one of the key points in the protection ants provide aphids against their natural enemies. Behavior of honeydew collectors from nature ("field," control) and laboratory reared "naive" ants of Formica pratensis Retzius, which had never met either "mature" workers or aphids and aphidophages, was observed during their(More)
