Evolution Size and behavior in ants : Constraints on complexity ( behavioral repertoire / brain volume / insects / aliometry / social behavior


In this paper I investigate the behavioral complexity of ants in relation to brain size. The volume of the corpora pedunculata, involved in the selection of motor programs, and the antennal lobes, involved in processing olfactory information, are directly related to the volume of the brain of an ant. The volume of the optic lobe, involved in visual… (More)
