Product description

Review

"Edward O. Wilson, one of those rare scientists who can make biology and science history not only readable but entertaining, has written a book that holds the reader's attention from beginning to end."

(Lynne M. Hinkey Internet Review of Books)

"By coupling excerpts from Mutis's forgotten diaries with recent findings on ant eating habits, reproductive behaviors, and emigration patterns, the authors give new relevance to one of the New World's oldest natural history studies. This interesting writing technique helps readers understand the continual nature of the process of scientific inquiry."

(Choice)

"A unique glance into the early world of science exploration, Kingdom of Ants is a delight to read and filled with intriguing information."

(Southeastern Naturalist)
