      : Paratrechina longicornis Latreille Solenopsis invicta Buren. Paratrechina longicornis discovered the foods, honey, meat, and cookie, first and recruited large numbers of foragers, dominating the baits for the first 20-30 min of the tests. Solenopsis invicta was slower to discover the baits but their ability to recruit additional foragers and their aggressive behavior resulted in displacement within 45-60 min of most P. longicornis and other ants from the baits and foraging arena. Four other species of ants observed in the study site: a Mycocepurus sp., an Acromyrmex sp., and two Conomyrma sp. occasionally fed on the baits but were not effective competitors for the former two species.

      Paratrechina flavipes 3 . About every 2 weeks for 2 years workers from one of these nests were paired with (related) workers from another nest from the same colony or with (unrelated) workers from a different colony. Aggression between workers of the paired nests varied seasonally. Workers were aggressive to related individuals only during the season when the nest was active, but they were always aggressive to unrelated workers. Such variability in aggression within a colony may be due to a seasonal change in the way nestmates are recognized, i.e. workers in active nests may discriminate their nestmates from non-nestmates by using both environmental and genetic odours, whereas when the nest is inactive they use genetic odour alone. The variable recognition mechanism of this ant may be involved in the evolution of more than one nest and one reproductive queen in a colony.

      **[P. longicornis was not present in Biosphere 2 in 1990-91. By 1993 populations had increased to extremely high levels & by 1996, it was the dominant ant. The main source of carbohydrates was honeydey produced by homopterans. Camponotus festinatus, Camponotus mina, Camponotus sexguttatus, Camponotus ustus, Camponotus sp., Crematogaster steinheili, Crematogaster sp., Cyphomyrmex minutus, Dorymyrmex insana, Forelius pruinosus, & Pheidole sp. 1 were introduced between August 1990 & August 1991 into Biospheres 2 before it was sealed. Between August 1990 & March 1991, 9 species were found: Cardiocondyla ectopia, Crematogaster opuntiae, Hypoponera opaciceps, L. humile, Odontomachus clarus, Paratrechina bourbonica, Pheidole hyatti, Pheidole sp. 2, & S. xyloni. Between April 1993 & January 1994, 6 species were found: C. ectopia, H. opaciceps, Paratrechina longicornis, Pheidole hyatti, Solenopsis xyloni, & T. bicarinatum. In November 1996 & June 1997, 10 species were found: C. wroughtoni, F. maccooki, H. opaciceps, Monomorium floricola, P. longicornis, P. vividula, Solenopsis molesta, Solenopsis rogeri, Tapinoma melanocephalum, & Tetramorium bicarinatum. At that time all ants seen foraging were P. longicornis except for M. floricola on 5 plants, & C. wroughtoni, Paratrechina vividula, T. melanocephalum, & T. bicarinatum on one plant each. Of 28,827 ants on baits, all were P. longicornis, except for one T. bicarinatum. Of the 1193 ants extracted from 18 soil & litter samples, there were 987 P. longicornis, 200 S. molesta, 3 H. opaciceps, 1 F. maccooki, 1 M. floricola, & 1 S. rogeri.]
