Data from: Extended phenotypes and foraging restrictions: ant nest entrances and resource ingress in leaf-cutting ants

Lucía I. Rodríguez-Planes & Alejandro G. Farji-Brener.
Several factors may restrict the acquisition of food to below the levels predicted by the optimization theory. However, how the design of structures that animals build for foraging restrict the entry of food are less known. Using scaling relationships we determined whether the design of the entrances of leaf-cutting ant nests restricts resource input into the colony. We measured nests and foraging parameters in 25 nests of Atta cephalotes in a tropical rain forest. Ant...
