Small yet abundant, with complex and wildly diverse lifestyles, ants are everywhere, living lives mostly hidden from our view. What if we could see into their world . . . on their level? What would we learn? What parallels could we draw between them and us. Now, with the aid of a macro lens and the insights of ant expert and photographer Dr. Mark Moffett, SITES and the Smithsonian ís National Museum of Natural History present the world of ants.
Farmers, Warriors, Builders was one of NMNH's most popular exhibitions of 2009, and the ongoing companion website has received a record number of visits.
Moffettís stunning macro photographs tell incredible stories about the lives of antsóhunting, communicating, dealing with disease and agricultureóand chronicle the work of entomologists in the field. This science-based exhibit includes complete instructions for a live ant colony and hands-on models that will awe both adults and children.
