Ants represent one of the most detailed studied groups in the Tisza River Basin. The myrmecological survey of the river basin is rooted back to the 1960s. The ant fauna, consisting of 64 species, is relatively poor, because of the severe inundations, especially in the so-called flood area, which is not protected by dikes against floods. Dikes, although being artificial sites, are rich ant habitats, contributing to the distribution of grassland species. On the basis of the number of occupied habitats, the common-rare species transition is smooth, and the semi-log rank-frequency curve shows the typical picture of a heterogeneous collection. In the PcoA ordination scattergram, only the grassland and forest ant species are segregated, the binary faunistical data are not sensitive enough to distiguish finer habitat preferences.
