Science writing at its best, myrmecologist Moffat shares his passion for a species adept at exploiting the most bizarre niches of the environment. Exquisitely illustrated with the author's color photographs we join a gigantic sortee of marauder ants in India, observe weaver ants spinning silk in order to bind leaves together to make a nest, and watch dumbfounded as a species in Brunei dives into pitcher plants to "fish" for drowned insects. We also get to admire the fungus-growing leaf-cutting ants and raise an eyebrow at the Amazon slavers who steal pupae from other species to do their work. All written with a dash of humor and loads of wonder. Check Our Catalog
