Product description


Ant Ecology is a well-written and comprehensive summary of the diversity, community ecology, and population dynamics of ant communities. It is an effective synthesis of more than 50 years of literature, integrating topics ranging from behavioural ecology to conservation biology...The structure of the book enables the next generation of researchers to access relevant literature and identify current areas of interest. i Ant Ecology r is thus an important addition to the literature; it will rest on the bookshelves of mymecologists next to their beloved copy of i The Ants r, destined to become equally dog-eared, sticky with Tanglefoot, and streaked with Fluon, the badges of honour of a well-used and invaluable resourse on ant biology. (Amy L. Mertl and James F. A. Traniello, American Entomologist)

Ant Ecology is probably the most complete summary of what is known about the ecology of ants to date. It is a must-read for first-year graduate students either planning to use ants as a model system or interested in various aspects of ant ecology. Ant Ecology will serve as a reference for cutting-edge ecological research on ants by among the most up-and-coming myrmecologists around. (Ecology)

The editors have successfully woven together pieces from a wide range of contributors to create an enjoyable volume that provides both a comprehensive overview for those new to the field, and a useful reference volume for experienced myrmecologists. (TREE)

The book as a whole has been extremely well written, in a simple and clear style which makes most of the contents appealing to a wide range of readers, even those without a strong background in biology. The book also incorporates 15 superb colour plates depicting a selection from the vast array of fascinating antlife. (Animal Behaviour)

About the Author

Dr. Lori Lach is a Research Fellow in the Ecosystems Restoration Laboratory at Murdoch University. She has conducted myrmecological research in many parts of the globe. Her current research interests include ant-plant and mutualistic interactions, and the consequences of biological invasions on these interactions. She is also interested in restoring native ant communities following ant invasion, and the development of restoration practices that facilitate invertebrate conservation. Dr. Catherine Parr is the present Trapnell Fellow is African Ecology at the University of Oxford. She is a community ecologist with broad research interests encapsulating species coexistence and biodiversity conservation. Much of her research focuses on ant communities in the savannas of southern Africa and northern Australia. Current projects involve investigating the importance of habitat complexity in mediating competition. Dr. Kirsti Abbott is an Assistant Lecturer and invasion ecologist at Monash University, with specific expertise in ants on islands, mutualisms, and management of invasive ants for biodiversity conservation. She is affiliated with isolated oceanic islands through advisory panels that help battle invasive ants, and has a passion for science communication and debate in the public arena. She currently teaches undergraduate students the importance of the practice and application of science in the hope they appreciate its contribution to the sustainability of the world we live in.
