Yellow crazy ants spread but decline in densities on Tokelau

Monica Gruber

Monica’s paper on the invasion of Tokelau by invasive yellow crazy ants has been published “on-line early” in Biological Invasions. In it she decribes the continuing invasion of a new haplotype of these ants. But she also describes how population densities have changed and that local residents don’t consider this top-100 pest species to be so much of a problem as it used to be.
