Abstract: Este estudo teve como objetivo avaliar a composição da fauna de formigas que forrageia abaixo da superfície do solo de áreas de Floresta Atlântica em estágio avançado de regeneração. Foram estudadas duas áreas similares em relação às características abióticas do solo, sendo uma localizada na Serra do Mar e a outra na Serra do Itapeti, ambas no Estado de São Paulo, Brasil. Em cada área foram distribuídos, a cada dois meses, 20 conjuntos de três armadilhas subterrâneas, contendo iscas atrativas, em buracos de 30… Show more

“…The lack of correlation observed in the present study may be explained by environmental degradation, which makes the environments simpler (Vasconcelos et al, 2006;Sobrinho & Schoereder, 2007), and increases the competition and abundance of generalistic species (Schoereder et al, 2004). We observed the same pattern in the hypogaeic fauna, as also observed by Figueiredo et al, (2013).…”

“…However, subfamilies as Amblyoponinae, Cerapachyinae, and Proceratiinae, which are usually recorded in forests, were not represented. This has possibly happened due to the sampling technique used here (see Vargas et al, 2009), as most of their species present cryptic behavior, and reduced size and they rarely forage in the leaf litter (Hölldobler & Wilson, 1990;see Longino et al, 2002;Figueiredo et al, 2013).…”

“…Besides revealing the highest record of ant diversity for an urban matrix in Brazil, this study presents an ant diversity similar and even higher to other studies conducted in natural habitats of the Atlantic Forest (Feitosa and Ribeiro 2005, Santos et al 2006, Rosumek et al 2008, Coelho et al 2009, Figueiredo et al 2012.…”
