A fine book for the specialist, of doubtful interest to the layman, this is a small sampling of one myrmecologist's observations - issued as one of the first volumes in the new Ann Arbor Science Library Scries, books by scientists beamed to the general reader. Dr. Goetsch describes his experiments to determine how ants adapt to the environments, how they build their nest, find their way, mate and hunt.

Excerpt from The AntsFrom time immemorial, ant communities have aroused interest and admiration. Herodotus reports that ants dragged grains of gold from deep in the earth (and Solo mon says in his Proverbs. Go to the ant, thou sluggard, consider her ways and be wise. Which having no gurde, overseer or ruler, provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Just how many species of ants can there be? Aren't they all the same? They all eat sugar, right? Do some ants sting or do all of them? Are there some poisonous ants? Well, if you ever wondered about questions like these, and wanted to get more complete answers than anything on the internet, then this book is for you to savor. THE ANTS contains the full story of ants in general, and then many specific stories of the 30,000 known and yet to be known species. Written by two very well-respected and well-known life-long biology researchers, it is written accurately, precisely, and accessibly so that whether you're an insect dilettante or researcher there is surely something in it for you.

The coffee-table sized book runs 732 pages, 20 chapters, and includes a glossary and an extensive annotated bibliography. The text is fully indexed, and includes about one thousand illustrations, photographs, graphs, and charts, and includes 24 full-color plates. It is a pleasure to read, and a book that you will enjoy owning, reading, re-reading, and referring to for years to come. One of my favorite books and highly recommended... - lc
I have read a few reviews of this book in the past and they fell into two categories. Either people who had training in this field who loved it, or people who picked it up because it was an award winner or looked interesting and hated it. Well let me give you some background. I'm 14, very interested in ants, and think this book is great. However, it is all about your view. First of all, it isn't a light read. I haven't taken any entomology courses and can enjoyably read it, but having a computer close by to look up words is essential. If you are not interested in ants, then this book isn't for you. Secondly, I do not suggest treating it like a chapter book. It is long and technical, making it like reading and encyclopedia. That brings me to my next point. I like to treat this book as an ant reference. If something specific comes up, you can flip to the index and quite miraculously, it's there. I mean really specific. For example; I recently collected a specimen of Sturimigensys louisianae (that's misspelled), and there was a section on them! So if you are interested in ants, this is a great book.
Wow, it's like an encyclopedia, textbook, and fun read combined. I've just started reading it and have decided to skip the anatomy sections and focus on the rest. Just judging from the table of contents this book really has a lot to say on ant evolution, communication (more than just pheromones) and organization. It will be a fascinating read!
Without question the best book.
A true life's work of a book. Tremendous, Thank you.
As an adult, I bought an ant farm from good old Uncle Milton. I was so excited about my ant farm, I decided to make this into a personal science project, and purchased this book. If there's something you want to know about ants, this is THE book. It made ownership of my ant farm much a greater pleasure. I should also mention that it made great use for the occasional escaping ant. It certainly isn't for kids unless that kid is of high school age, and very interested in becoming a biologist.
This goes deep so it's not a light read by any means in most respects... A great coffee table book if you have some interest in Ants... I flip through it every now and then when my curiosity is peaked by these fascinating creatures like when I'm on vacation in the tropics... It's the compendius compendium on ants...!!
The Ants is the most comprehensive referance book available on the subject. It's extremely well written, but the language is generally geared towards entomologists. If you have at least a bit of a background in entomology, The Ants is a great referance (and even a decent read). However, if you are not so inclined to trudge through the more technical aspects, I'd recommend Journey to the Ants by the same authors, which gets much of the wonder and beauty of ants across in more of a novel format.
