Semi-protected edit request on 8 October 2017[edit]

In the life cycle section change the following "Ants are active all year long in the tropics, but, in cooler regions, they survive the winter in a state of dormancy or inactivity." to "Ants are active all year long in the tropics, but, in cooler regions, they survive the winter in a state of dormancy known as hibernation." 2601:407:C303:4060:2CE2:DD2A:265B:297C (talk) 21:00, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

Hibernation Temperatures[edit]

The article reads "in cooler regions" no citation is given. cooler is subjective term, at what temperature do ants' hibernation begin and for what species specific temperature? Or citation to source for this field of information.

Iwasking (talk) 03:00, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

Cooler may actually be appropriate here and is contrasted with the tropics. There will surely be much variation and it would be inappropriate to define a hard temperature on it. There is indeed a citation at the end of those two lines - the same author has another paper on the topic that is available online with more information. Shyamal (talk) 03:25, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
