The leafcutter ants : civilization by instinct by Bert Hölldobler( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and French and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Leafcutter Ants provides a tour of Earth's most evolved animal societies. Each colony of leafcutters contains as many as five million workers, all the daughters of a single queen that can live over a decade. A gigantic nest can stretch thirty feet across, rise five feet or more above the ground, and consist of hundreds of chambers that reach twenty-five feet below the ground surface. Indeed, the leafcutters have parlayed their instinctive civilization into a virtual domination of forest, grassland, and cropland from Louisiana to Patagonia. Inspired by a section of the authors' acclaimed The Superorganism, this illustrated work provides the explanation of what a social order with a half-billion years of animal evolution has achieved."--Jacket

Journey to the ants : a story of scientific exploration by Bert Hölldobler( Book )

37 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sichly illustrated and delightfully written, Journey to the Ants combines autobiography and scientific lore to convey the excitement and pleasure the study of ants can offer. The authors interweave their personal adventures with the social lives of ants, building, from the first minute observations of childhood, a remarkable account of these abundant insects' evolutionary achievement. Accompanying Holldobler and Wilson, we peer into the colony to see how ants cooperate and make war, how they reproduce and bury their dead, how they use propaganda and surveillance, and how they exhibit a startlingly familiar ambivalence between allegiance and self-aggrandizement. This exotic tour of the entire range of formicid biodiversity - from social parasites to army ants, nomadic hunters, camouflaged huntresses, and energetic builders of temperature-controlled skyscrapers - opens out increasingly into natural history, intimating the relevance of ant life to human existence

Plötzlich ist sie da: die Ameisenstrasse quer über den Sitzplatz. Nach dem ersten Ärger drängt sich die Frage auf, wie diese Tiere ihren Weg so zielsicher finden.

Nur die Königin nimmt eine Sonderstellung ein. (Quelle: Umschlag)
An introduction to evolutionary ecology by Andrew Cockburn( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using a wealth of real examples from both the animal and plant kingdoms, Andrew Cockburn explores the questions at the heart of evolutionary ecology: the origin and maintenance of diversity; the pressures that determine form and behaviour; and the way in which organisms interact. The new edition has been extensively revised. It has been comprehensively updated to incorporate all the latest advances in the field. Coverage of topical subjects - such as plant mating systems, interspecific interactions, and intragenomic conflict - has

Herbivory of leaf-cutting ants : a case study on Atta colombica in the tropical rainforest of Panama by R Wirth( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plant-animal interactions have become a focus of ecological research, with the processes of herbivory being of special interest. This volume examines the interactions of leaf-cutting ants with the rainforest vegetation on Barro Colorado Islands in Central America. It is the synthesis of field research on multiple scales extending over a period of several years. This work can serve as a model study summarizing and extending knowledge about herbivorous insect-plant relationships, and the resulting consequences on structural and functional features of tropical ecosystems. The text is an invaluable reference for researchers and land managers working in the fields of plant-animal interactions, herbivory, community ecology and biodiversity
