Project Data

The goals of the ant work were to: 1) survey Tetiaroa ant fauna with a specific focus on identifying any problem invasive species, and recommend any applicable actions; 2) identify areas where biosecurity against invasive ants could be improved – primarily because little fire ants Wasmannia auropunctata are present in Tahiti, which is the main entry point to Tetiaroa.
