  • SummaryParabiosis is defined as a special symbiosis, so far known only from a few Neotropical ant species, in which two or more species occupy the same nest site and forage together while keeping brood separate. In Brazil the foraging and feeding interactions in two previously reported cases of parabiosis have been reexamined. The two cases both include what was considered to be a single species ofCrematogaster (limata var.parabiotica) nesting respectively withMonacis debilis andCamponotus… CONTINUE READING
