The Ants That Conquered the World

Professor Evan Economo and researchers in the Biodiversity and Biocomplexity Unit compared genetic sequences from hundreds species of Pheidole, a group of ants with mysteriously high diversity. They used these sequences to construct a Pheidole evolutionary tree that suggests Pheidole evolved…

The Ants That Conquered the World

This rare species of Pheidole, discovered in 2008, is only found on two small Pacific Islands. The function of the exaggerated spines is unknown, but has evolved independently several times during the evolution of Pheidole. Prof. Economo and colleagues are…
