Data from: Taxonomic and functional ant diversity along a secondary successional gradient in a tropical forest

Maya Rocha-Ortega, Xavier Arnan, José Domingos Ribeiro-Neto, Inara R. Leal, Mario E. Favila & Miguel Martínez-Ramos
The taxonomic diversity (TD) of tropical flora and fauna tends to increase during secondary succession. This increase may be accompanied by changes in functional diversity (FD), although the relationship between TD and FD is not well understood. To explore this relationship, we examined the correlations between the TD and FD of ants and forest age in secondary forests at the α- and β-diversity levels using single- and multi-trait-based approaches. Our objectives were to understand ant...
