The World Of Ants

May 1, 2014

Insects are all around us: under our feet, in the air, living in the trees, even sharing our homes.  But perhaps the most ubiquitous of them all are ants.  We’re certainly outnumbered by them and probably have no idea exactly how massive the ant world in our region is.  But Dr. Eleanor Spicer-Rice does.  She’s made it her business to study these insects that impact agriculture, development, the economy and more.
