Granivorous ants in the southwestern deserts of the United States are characterized by species-specific colony foraging behaviors that determine their efficiencies at utilizing seeds from different density distributions. Workers search for food either in groups or as individuals, and these feeding strategies represent specializations for high and low density resources respectively. While gathering experimental seeds, simultaneously supplied in clumped and dispersed distributions, feeding by… Expand
