A Discussion of How Ants Talk to Each Other

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Unlike ants themselves, ant communication is no small matter. Ants have an extensive communication system and communicate with each other on every level of their society—to find food, mate, raise their young, identify and exclude foreigners, establish and defend territories, determine caste, and steal larvae from other colonies to raise as slaves. This book provides an in-depth look into the fascinating world of ant communication. BONUS: Both the scientific and general interest versions of the book are included. Dr. Paul Mazzocchi calls The Science of Ant Communication a "beautiful essay on ant pheromones. It is well worth reading as an example of the complexity of the animal world and the interdependence of behavior and chemistry, the world of chemical ecology."
