n African Entomology - Ant communities in two habitats in Succulent Karoo shrubland - short communications

Volume 28 Number 1
  • ISSN : 1021-3589



The semiarid Succulent Karoo biome of South Africa is one of the world’s 25 biodiversity hotspots (Myers et al. 2000); an arid winter-rainfall region uniquely dominated by dwarf-leaf succulent shrubs (Mucina & Rutherford 2006).
