  • Students from this year's Ant Course have produced a series of videos showcasing three aspects of the course: learning about myrmecology, learning about ant natural history and learning research techniques. These are a great introduction to why we study ants.
  • The latest issue of Asian Myrmecology is now available. Asian Myrmecology is a peer-reviewed, yearly journal dedicated to the study of Asian ants. It publishes original refereed research papers on ants in or from Asia and covers all different areas of modern ant research, including Taxonomy, Biogeography & Distribution, Ecology, Ethology and Applied myrmecology. All papers are open access and can be freely downloaded.
  • Peeters, Heraty & Wiwatwitaya (2015) report the first known case of a eucharitid wasp parasitising a Diacamma species, Diacamma scalpratum.
  • Evan Economo, Benoit Guénard and the AntMaps team are pleased to announce the launch of AntMaps. AntMaps is an interactive tool to visualize geographic distributions of all ant species as well as aggregate diversity patterns. AntMaps is based on the Global Ant Biodiversity Informatics (GABI) database, which aggregates records from over 8500 publications, plus museum and online databases, currently consisting of 1.6 million records in total. We hope you will find this new tool useful in your research.
