The convergence ofZacryptocerus varians andCamponotus (Colobopsis) sp. is manifest in three ways: i) Structural convergence (shield-headed major workers, large eggs), ii) Qualitative behavioral convergence (high rate of oral trophallaxis, traffic in infrabuccal pellets, iii) Repertoire convergence (number of behavioral categories in common, behavioral distance). Methods of analyzing repertoire convergence using techniques borrowed from numerical taxonomy may be especially useful in obtaining… CONTINUE READING
