Ant Invasions: Many ants introduced, not all establish.



Andrew V. Suarez, David A. Holway, and Philip S. Ward. 2005. The role of opportunity in the unintentional introduction of nonnative ants PNAS 102: 17032-35.

Abstract:
A longstanding goal in the study of biological invasions is to predict why some species are successful invaders, whereas others are not. To understand this process, detailed information is required concerning the pool of species that have the opportunity to become established. Here we develop an extensive database of ant species unintentionally transported to the continental United States and use these data to test how opportunity and species-level ecological attributes affect the probability of establishment. This database includes an amount of information on failed introductions that may be unparalleled for any group of unintentionally introduced insects. We found a high diversity of species (232 species from 394 records), 12% of which have become established in the continental United States. The probability of establishment increased with the number of times a species was transported (propagule pressure) but was also influenced by nesting habit. Ground nesting species were more likely to become established compared with arboreal species. These results highlight the value of developing similar databases for additional groups of organisms transported by humans to obtain quantitative data on the first stages of the invasion process: opportunity and transport.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real income.
It gets down to choose a correct partner who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

She sat up, staring with her nightsight at the outlines of the men around her. Nialdlye suckled her nipple as she yanked the ties that held the blouse closed. If were something new and unexpected, then how do you know were not in love? Thought perhaps Brevin would drop his pants and let Lanthan fuck him. The thought of lashing out at Brevin, Lanthan, or Tykir fizzled as it occurred. Rocks and debris filled them still, but she had done what shed come to do. But maybe we could eat first? Thats what youre happy about? Or maybe her raw power from before had allowed her to read him more clearly. The entire time youve lived among us, Ive been jealous of you. She barely restrained the urge to push up and seal her lips to his. Go away, go away, go away. She saw Brevin give Tykir a withering look. But Brevins weight kept her where she was. Chuckling, Brevin slid arms around Tykirs chest. She collapsed into a gooey, shuddering heap. Unexpected emotion welled in her throat at the very thought. That would have been wonderful. She was so close The sweet talk is no longer necessary, she murmured.

All the frustration and rage boiling within her poured into the choking bodies around her. But the best fighting they could manage were savage couplings to slake the sexual need. Gala chuckled softly. His fingers dug into the sand when Arkir pushed off him to find another opponent. She felt the soothing fingers of a sleep spell seep into her mind.
