  • Camponotus sericeiventris is a polymorphic ant living in populous colonies at tropical forests and cerrado formation. This study provides a detailed account of the natural history and foraging biology of C. sericeiventris in cerrado at Ecological Station of Panga, Southeast of Brazil. The nest distribution according to vegetation physiognomies, activity rhythm, diet, and foraging patterns were described. Results showed that nests occur inside dead or live trunks, and also in branches of soft… CONTINUE READING
