Ant species richness, endemicity and functional groups, along an elevational gradient in the Himalayas

, , Meenakshi Bharti & Martin Pfeiffer
In this study we investigate variation in species density, species richness, abundance and functional-groups composition along an elevational gradient in Jammu-Kashmir Himalaya. We tested the hypotheses that (1) species richness and abundance decrease with increase in elevation with respect to temperature change, and (2) assemblage composition changes with an increase in elevation with respect to functional-group composition. We employed different sampling methods like pitfall traps, leaf-litter sifting, stick beating, soil cores, honey baits and hand...
