Data from: Roads increase population growth rates of a native leaf-cutter ant in Neotropical savannahs

Ernane H. M. Vieira-Neto, Heraldo L. Vasconcelos & Emilio M. Bruna
A challenge in applied ecology is understanding the responses of native species to roads, which are ubiquitous drivers of environmental heterogeneity. While most studies highlight their negative effects, the potential for native species to increase in abundance near roads has been underappreciated, and the demographic mechanisms underlying abundance changes remain unclear. Elucidating these mechanisms requires first determining how demographic vital rates and life-history stages interact to influence population growth. One can then assess how roads...
