Objectives: The overall goal of this study is a comparison of the structure and composition of the ant communities at different altitudes in Western Wyoming. In doing this we hope to establish some of the basic characteristics of ant communities in general, and to arrive at a picture of the ant fauna of the Jackson Hole region. This kind of study should lead to an increased understanding of animal communities and biotic communities in montane regions. Project Number 80.
