Appendix A: Description of measurements used in the morphological analysis.
Ecological Archives M080-003-A1.

Appendix B: Mean of linear measurements representing morphological traits for each leaf-litter ant species collected in four Atlantic forest localities in Brazil, according to guild classification used for co-occurrence analysis (guild proportionality tests).
Ecological Archives M080-003-A2.

Appendix C: Observed variance of the nearest-neighbor distance (VAR-NND) among coexisting leaf-litter ant assemblage for four Atlantic Forest localities in Brazil, generated by randomly choosing without replacement from the regional species pool (171 species) the same number of species found at each site, using two different procedures.
Ecological Archives M080-003-A3.

Appendix D: Local-scale morphological null model analyses applied to body size, shape size, and body size + shape.
Ecological Archives M080-003-A4.

Appendix E: Species richness for the leaf-litter ant fauna sampled in eight Atlantic forest sites from southeastern and south Brazil, and individual-based rarefaction curves for leaf-litter ant fauna in the training data set and in the validation data set.
