In this study we investigated the relationship between spatial distance and intraspecific aggression in the Mediterranean tree-nesting ant Crematogaster scutellaris. Aggression tests were carried out in the field confronting group of workers (20 from each nest) collected from pairs of nests located at increasing distances one from the other (5, 10, 20, 40 and 80 meters). For each distance, 6 replicate tests, using different pairs of nests, were carried out. The probability of aggression and the… CONTINUE READING
