 ANT LINKS
AntWeb – Every ant tells a story. AntWeb provides tools for exploring the diversity and identification of ants.
AntBase – Antbase is a collaborative effort between scientists from around the world, aiming at providing the best possible access to the wealth of information on ants.
Hymenoptera Name Server – The name server allows searches based on the Latin Binomen of species.
Myrmecos.net – Alex Wild on insects, science, and photography.
Ant Course – is a workshop designed primarily for systematists, ecologists, behaviorists, conservation biologists, and other biologists whose research responsibilities require a greater understanding of ant taxonomy and field research techniques.
Key to common household ants – This key includes the ant species that are most likely to be a nuisance around California homes and structures. Many other ant species occur in California, but most are not home invaders.
FORMIS – FORMIS 2009 is a composite of several ant literature databases. It contains citations for a large fraction of the world’s ant literature (about 45,000 references). FORMIS contains all known ant taxonomic literature (through 1996).
GLOBAL ANT PROJECT (GAP) – The creation of a “live” community-based, on-line Global Ant Catalogue, supported by NSF and the California Academy of Sciences with funds of $500,000 was put forward by conference participants to serve as the initial phase of a ten year project. Building upon the foundation of AntWeb.org, Bolton’s digital Catalogue of the Ants of the World, A Bibliography of Ant Systematics (Ward, et al); and supported by a global network of ant ecologists, taxonomists and others, a consensus for the presentation of valid names for ants will be created. This catalogue will become the nexus of a much larger digital network of images, scientific literature, distribution data, molecular data, and behavior and biology.
