22 Ecological communities are being reshaped by climatic change. Losses and gains of species will alter 23 community composition and diversity but these effects are likely to vary geographically and may be hard 24 to predict from uncontrolled “natural experiments”. In this study, we used open-top warming chambers to 25 simulate a range of warming scenarios for ground-nesting ant communities at a northern (Harvard Forest, 26 MA) and southern (Duke Forest, NC) study site in the eastern US.
