Ants: Workers of the World (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Nature's most successful insects captured in remarkable macrophotography

In Ants,

photographer Eduard Florin Niga brings us incredibly close to the most

numerous animals on Earth, whose ability to organize colonies,

communicate among themselves, and solve complex problems has made them

an object of endless fascination. Among the more than 30 species

photographed by Niga are leafcutters that grow fungus for food, trap-jaw

ants with fearsome mandibles, bullet ants with potent stingers,

warriors, drivers, gliders, harvesters, and the pavement ants that are

always underfoot. Among his most memorable images are

portraits-including queens, workers, soldiers, and rarely seen

males-that bring the reader face-to-face with these creatures whose

societies are eerily like our own. Science writer Eleanor Spicer Rice

frames the book with a lively text that describes the life cycle of ants

and explains how each species is adapted to its way of life. Ants

is a great introduction to some of the Earth's most successful

creatures that showcases the power of photography to reveal the unseen

world all around us.
