Seed harvester ants and fire recovery in Utah deserts

Single sheet of paper with bullet points

View research brief.

This research brief summarizes research that found seed harvester ants, along with small mammals, could have a large impact on reseeding
efforts after a fire. But the populations over time are not well known. The number of ants in burned areas is significantly greater than unburned areas, but this may be an initial, short-lived response.
