Description
In tales from Nigeria, Indonesia, the Amazon, Australia, California, and elsewhere, Mark Moffett recounts his entomological exploits in search of the hidden world of ants. A biologist and photographer as well as an explorer, he provides fascinating details on how ants live and how they dominate their ecosystems through strikingly human behaviors, though at a different scale and a faster tempo. Moffett's spectacular close-up photographs let us observe ants in such familiar roles as warriors, builders, big-game hunters, and slave owners. They create marketplaces and assembly lines and deal with issues we think of as uniquely human—including hygiene, recycling, farming, and tactical warfare.

"Mark Moffett has been described as 'the Jane Goodall of ants.' Certainly Adventures among Ants, with its detailed account of his fieldwork, makes an invaluable contribution to our scientific knowledge of these creatures. But it does more. It is so well written and captures his excitement so wonderfully that it will bring this wealth of information to a far wider audience. I was fascinated by ants when I was a child—how I wish this book had been available to me then."—Jane Goodall
