Ant diversity, function and services across tropical land-use systems in Indonesia

Lisa Denmead will primarily analyse the taxonomic and functional diversity of ants across rainforest transformation systems. This data will be linked through exclusion experiments to ecosystem services provided by ants to oil palm and rubber production. Collection methods will include baiting, Winkler traps (litter samples), pitfall traps and others. The wide range of methods will allow B09 to study not only ants but also other invertebrate groups.
