Nest spatial structure and population organization in the Neotropical ant Azteca chartifex spiriti Forel, 1912 (Hymenoptera: Formicidae: Dolichoderinae)
Azteca chartifex spiriti is a dominant arboreal ant living in forests and agroforests in southeast Bahia, Brazil. This species is especially important as it is considered as one of the main agents of natural biological control in cocoa plantations. This ant builds carton structures following a polydomous nesting strategy. Our study aimed to characterize the spatial structure of its nests and population organization living in. Seven colonies of A. chartifex spiriti were studied. In each one, thedoi:10.6084/m9.figshare.17121638.v1 fatcat:2vsfciohzvfyjjjkoctxvrl24u
