   FIG. E1. Individual-based rarefaction curves for leaf-litter ant fauna in (a) the training data set and (b) in the validation data set (see text for further details). For clarity, the 95% Confidence Intervals (CIs) associated with the observed species richness, as calculated by EstimateS version 7.5.2 (Colwell 2005), were omitted.

 

TABLE E1. Species richness for the leaf-litter ant fauna sampled in eight Atlantic forest sites from southeastern and south of Brazil, based on 50 1-m2 samples in each locality. Sobs= observed species in 50 samples based on given occurrences.
