Summary

Ants represent a functionally important group of arthropods. They are central to many ecosystem processes and are actively involved in decomposition of dead wood, nutrient cycling, plant pollination, seed dispersal, and predation on other arthropods. They also provide are also prey for many wildlife species and other arthropods. The assessment of their status can provide much information useful in monitoring the integrity of biotic communities.Ant communities of nine riparian habitat types within the Big Beaver Creek Research Natural Area (BBCRNA) were sampled with pitfall traps, for five months, in 1995. A subset of five of the habitats was resampled with pitfall traps, for four months, during 1996. A total effort of 17,880 trap-days [...]
