Abstract

The grasslands of the Ishikari coast is occupied by a huge supercolony of Formica yessensis, consisting, of about 45,000 nests. This supercolony skews the habitat preferences of some ants. Thus, some ants are rare or absent in the grasslands (probably as a consequence of avoiding F.yessensis), though they inhabit the forest where F.yessensis is scarce.
