Abstract:

The study was conducted in the Protected Forest area of Tuhaha Village, Saparua Sub-District, Mollucas Province, in May - July 2018 to determine the presence, abundance, diversity and evenness of ant species in relation to climate change in Mollucas. Ants were collected by three methods, namely Hand Collecting, Pitfall trap with soapy water bait using a detergent brand Rinso, bait trap with sugar water bait and tuna fish. The results of the study found 35 species of ants as many as 1866 tails, the diversity of species 1.47 were classified as moderate, species richness 4.51 and evenness of type 0.41 with a distribution pattern of 0.19, which was classified as grouped type. Correlation analysis on factors of air temperature climate and air humidity found that the results of R square of air temperature were 0.003%, air humidity was 0.63%, and rainfall was 3.25% for the number of ants.
