  • Baptiste Piqueret, Élodie Montaudon, Paul Devienne, Chloé Leroy, Elisabetta Marangoni, Jean-Christophe Sandoz and Patrizia d'Ettorre. 2023. Ants act as olfactory bio-detectors of tumours in patient-derived xenograft mice. Proceedings B (Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Biological Science). Volume 290, Issue 1991. (ссылка).
          Муравьи отличают больных раком мышей по запаху их мочи. Early detection of cancer is critical in medical sciences, as the sooner a cancer is diagnosed, the higher are the chances of recovery. Tumour cells are characterized by specific volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can be used as cancer biomarkers. Through olfactory associative learning, animals can be trained to detect these VOCs. Insects such as ants have a refined sense of smell, and can be easily and rapidly trained with olfactory conditioning. Using urine from patient-derived xenograft mice as stimulus, we demonstrate that individual ants can learn to discriminate the odour of healthy mice from that of tumour-bearing mice and do so after only three conditioning trials. After training, they spend approximately 20% more time in the vicinity of the learned odour than beside the other stimulus. Chemical analyses confirmed that the presence of the tumour changed the urine odour, supporting the behavioural results. Our study demonstrates that ants reliably detect tumour cues in mice urine and have the potential to act as efficient and inexpensive cancer bio-detectors.

  • Casiraghi, Alice; García-Tejero, Sergio; Hidalgo, Nicolás Pérez; Espadaler, Xavier. 2022. Interactions of the invasive Lasius neglectus (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) with aphids (Hemiptera: Sternorrhyncha: Aphididae). Annales de la Société entomologique de France (N.S.), Volume 58, Number 5, 3 September 2022, pp. 461-467(7) (ссылка).
          Since the invasive garden ant Lasius neglectus Van Loon, Boomsma & Andrásfalvy, 1990 was first detected in 1998 in Seva (Barcelona), and despite the number of amateurs and professionals dedicated to the study of ants in Spain, this species had only been located outside Catalonia in Tenerife, Vizcaya and Valencia. Here we present a detailed study of its presence in the city of León (north-western Spain) and its trophic relationships with aphids. In the city we found two clearly separated supercolonies of L. neglectus attending 32 species of aphids living on 31 plant taxa. Lasius neglectus seems to avoid landscaped areas with high humidity and mainly attends aphids that live on shrubs and trees. The study is complemented with all the aphid–ant interactions known for this species.

  • Battisti; Giulio, Di; Fanelli; Cerfolli. 2022. Anthills: stressor or opportunity for plant assemblage diversity? Evidence from Mediterranean Dasypyretum grasslands. Ethology Ecology & Evolution, Volume 34, Number 4, 4 July 2022, pp. 406-417(12) (ссылка).
          We explored the structure of plant assemblages that settles around the anthills of a guild of Hymenoptera Formicidae (Messor wasmanni Krausse 1910, Tapinoma nigerrimum Nylander 1856 and Aphaenogaster spinosa Emery 1878), observable in urban grasslands dominated by Dasypyrum villosum (Rome, Central Italy). Since it is known that ants act as a disturbing factor on plant assemblages of grasslands, our hypothesis was that vegetation structures suffer from some stressors that affect, in this plant association, the dominant plant structure. We compared the plant assemblages observed in the plots of the anthills with the control grassland assemblages using a diversity/dominance diagram. We recorded 63 plant taxa. The average number of plant species was found to be significantly lower in anthill plots than in control grassland plots. In anthill plots, dominant plant species (Polygonum romanum, Poa trivialis Vulpia myuros, Aira elegantissima and Vulpia ligustica) have been found to be different from control grassland plots (Convolvolus arvensis, Dasypyrum villosum, Poa trivialis and Sheradia arvensis). Anthill plant assemblages were found to be significantly different (One-way PERMANOVA) and poorer in terms of species richness, less diversified, and with a reduced species turnover than control grassland plots. Whittaker plot analysis seems to show that the plant assemblages of the control, with greater evenness, emphasize a stressed condition in anthill plant assemblages. Non-metric multidimensional scaling shows a set of species strictly linked to anthills. Our data seem to confirm the role of ants as a stressor in the plant assemblage structures of Mediterranean urban grasslands. However, our results also show that the peculiar ant nest conditions may favor plant species less represented in the Dasypyretum grasslands (i.e. Polygonum romanum) or even absent in this plant assemblage (i.e. Aira elegantissima, Cynodon dactylon and Poa annua), thus increasing the overall local plant diversity.
