Data for: Scaling relationships in Formica ants with continuous worker size variation

Jessica Purcell, Shirley Tawdros & Mari West
Social insects exhibit highly variable body plans at multiple scales: within colonies, between conspecific colonies, and across different species. The interspecific variation in the existence and prevalence of morphologically discrete worker subcastes in social insects raises questions about the ontogeny and functional importance of alternative worker body plans. Here, we examine the allometry of four Formicaspecies. Formica are among the most common ants in the northern hemisphere temperate zone, and species vary greatly in the...
