In which I will be keeping track (for my own benefit) of my daily progress in the identification of the ant fauna of Tiputini Biodiversity Station in Ecuador, the analysis of that data, and the pursuit of my PhD. And (for the benefit of everyone else) I hope to provide helpful information on ants, taxonomy, database management, identification, and other assorted endeavors. Cheers
I just found this very nice site authored by Chris Schmidt on the morphological and functional diversity of ant mandibles. Awesome photos and very clear explanations. It is a treehouse on the Tree of Life. Check it out.
Update: Whoops! I forgot to include the link. Check it out here.
