During this second season the goal of the project has remained the analysis of ant faunal characteristics and realtionships within distinct communities, and the comparison of these parameters of the ant fauna in biotic commmunities at increasing altitudes. We expect that this study will lead to an increased understanding of biotic communitites in general, and the highly important ant fauna within them, in particular, and to a better understanding of the changes in biotic communities that occur with increasing altitude. Project Number 80.
