Ants of India Book

Just found this fantastic looking book on the ants of India:

On A Trail With Ants
A Handbook of the Ants of Peninsular India
Ajay Narendra and Sunil Kumar

A primer to the life of ants, introducing the reader to the ants of Peninsular India. The book sets a trend in ant studies by enabling the reader to observe and identify ants at home and elsewhere, in a non-intrusive manner. It is suitable for a varied audience, from students, entomologists, naturalists to photographers. Included in the book are more than 150 colour photographs, almost all photographed in the wild for the first time. A5 size paperback; 208 Pages; 188 Figures.

The blog Ant Visions has some beautiful example pages you can check out here.

  1. Hi

    I bougth this book last year at a conference in India, on ants and other social hymenoptera.

    I've read alomost everything in this book. I'll never meet any of these ants in Denmark - but the book is written in a way that had me reading about everything, just for the fun og it. The pictures in the book also deserves high praise!

    I highly recommend it to anyone interested in ants.
