Abstract : The paper deals with the preliminary survey and documentation of different varieties of ant species population sampled from 16 different pockets of southern Patna urban area encompassing the localities of Kankarbagh, Patna Gaya Road, Karbigahia, outer bypass etc. Ant population expected to be well diversified in terms of species richness and abundance has been sampled from Southern urban zones of Patna situated at latitude and longitude of 8802’N – 2303’E & 22055’S – 88010’E, having tropical characteristic. The results of application of these species diversity indices as information statistics tools for different ant species sampled have been discussed in this paper which can explain the causes of ant species diversity in this area in relation to other biotic and abiotic factors.
