In a few months I'm moving to the UAE for a couple years of work. My question is, are there any traits there that I would be hard pressed to find in Oregon? I found the list of UAE ants on antweb (http://www.antweb.org/tax...cies&project=uaeants) and I've gone through quite a bit of the list but have a hard time finding specifics. To elaborate further, Camponotus here is likely much like Camponotus there in behavior, so would not be as interesting as a trap-jaw ant (which aren't located there as far as I can tell) or some other unique to me species. I can look at genus for general ideas, such as seeing that Pachycondyla is a hunting ant and one species is located there, but does anyone have any experience with UAE ants, and not just information I can get via google? Thank you, all.
