  • Abstract: Invasive ants can influence abundance and diversity of insect pollinators, and this effect may be expected to be especially strong on oceanic islands. We examined abundance of native Hylaeus bees and patterns of flower visitation to three native Hawaiian plant species (Leptecophylla tameiameiae, Santalum haleakalae, and Geranium cuneatum) in presence and absence of invasive Argentine ants (Linepithema humile) in the subalpine shrubland of Haleakalā volcano. Native bees, nonnative… CONTINUE READING
