Data from: Pheromone-induced accuracy of nestmate recognition in carpenter ants: simultaneous decrease of Type I and Type II errors

Natacha Rossi, David Baracchi, Martin Giurfa & Patrizia D'Ettorre
The ecological and evolutionary success of social insects relies on their ability to efficiently discriminate between group members and aliens. Nestmate recognition occurs by phenotype matching, the comparison of the referent (colony) phenotype to the one of an encountered individual. Based on the level of dissimilarity between the two, the discriminator accepts or rejects the target. The tolerated degree of mismatch is predicted by the acceptance threshold model, which assumes adaptive threshold shifts depending on...
