Abstract.  1. We analysed ant species richness‐environment relationships across the Subantartic‐Patagonian transition, in southern South America. We tested the predictions of the (i) thermal limitation hypothesis: temperature limits ant species richness, (ii) the productivity hypothesis: ant richness is driven by the indirect effect of climate (temperature and precipitation) mediated by changes in plant environment (plant cover and litter accumulation). We also evaluated the effects of (iii… Expand
