The biodiversity and differentiation of ants into microclimatically contrasting habitats were investigated at the "Evolution Canyon" microsite, Nahal Oren, Mt. Carrnel, Israel. The ant fauna consists of 17 species: 10 species occur on the south-facing slope, 10 on the north-facing slope, and 6 at the valley bottom. The two slopes differ by 30% of their species, out of which three species are restricted to the north-facing slope, two species are restricted to the south-facing slope and one species occurs on both the south-facing slope and the valley bottom. Four species were restricted to the valley bottom.
