On 16 August 2012 BBC News reported:
Researchers have highlighted two recent studies that suggest seeds spread by ants may be an important driver of plant diversity in the Cape region of South Africa The two studies used genetic data from areas with and without seed-dispersing ants to assess their contribution to diversity. The scientists said the evidence showed a 'great role for tiny players'. Professor Jonathan Majer and Professor Ladislav Mucina from Curtin University in Australia wrote their report in response to a scholarly article calling for the causes of diversification in the Cape region to be identified. 'It's one of the world's global biodiversity hotspots,' Prof Majer, an expert in insect conservation, told BBC Nature.
