About this book

Countless ants transport and deposit seeds and thereby influence the survival, death, and evolution of many plant species. In higher plants, seed dispersal by ants (myrmecochory) has appeared many times independently in different lineages. This monograph is a first attempt at collecting information about morphology, ecology and phenology of ants and plants from one ecosystem.
