Subject and Keywords:
Three species predominated in ant communities inhabiting a mountain pasture : Myrmica scabrinodis Nyl., M. lobicornis Nyl. and Lasius flavus Fabr. The numbers of their foragers reached a maximum in June and July. The activity of M. scabrinodis increased with temperature. Generally, the foragers had clumped distribution. In M. scabrinodis it was related to their numbers and to the species diversity of all foraging ants. The carrying capacity of the habitat, degree of its utilization, threat from the outside and food specialization are considered the main factors responsible for a stable nest location and the size of nests.
