Temperature dependence, energetics, and speed of locomotion have important implications for the ecology and evolution of ants. Here, we report the results of a full-factorial study investigating the responses of active metabolic rate (AMR), voluntary locomotion speed, and cost of transport (COT) to three temperature acclimations (7-10 d; 20 degrees, 25 degrees, and 30 degrees C) and three test temperature treatments (2 h; 20 degrees, 25 degrees, and 30 degrees C) in a seed-harvester ant, Messor… CONTINUE READING
