Instead, macarthur and wilson sought to stimulate new forms of theoretical and empirical studies, which will lead in turn to a stronger general theory.

Tesis ce, Universidad del Valle, Cali, 63p. Species richness and specimen macartyur frequency of ants were positively correlated with area, whereas no significant correlation was found between species richness and the degree of isolation calculated for the forest patches.

Ant species richness and specimen density were calculated from equal size samples and examined in relation to the habitat area.

Replaced Flowed Text instances by Text, because the former are rendered as black rectangles. Hence, the numbers are likely to differ from actual numbers today. Moreover, it emphasizes the conservation value of small forest fragments for ants in a tropical dry forest.

According to the food preference, species richness was positively correlated with area for the army ant group, while no significant correlation was found for solitary hunters or for leaf-cutting ants. According to the habitat requirements we found that the species richness increased faster as area increased for ants inhabiting decomposing wood, followed by ants associated with trees, while species richness of ants living under dead leaves did not correlate with area.

According to this theory, the number of species on an island is a function of the islands size and its distance from the nearest mainlands macarthur and. As the fragmentation affects different functional groups in different ways, we analyzed the species-area relationship for separate functional groups of ants. Sin embargo, otras publicaciones apoyan el resultado de este estudio. I, the copyright holder of this work, release this work into the public domain. We analyzed the effect of fragmentation on ant species-area and specimen frequency-area relationships in nine patches of tropical dry forest in the middle Cauca river basin in Colombia.
