Special Issue "Ant Symbioses"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 December 2020.
Interests: ecology of social insects; forensic entomology
Ants (Hymenoptera, Formicidae) form diverse symbioses with other organisms, including plants, animals, fungi, and bacteria. Some of these relationships involve three or more participating species. The symbionts may be mutualists, commensals, pathogens, predators, or parasitoids. This Special Issue will highlight unique symbioses involving ants.
