The Importance of Ants...

I have always suspected that ants are not just very important in any ecosystem in the world, but in our scientific world as well. Nature's bibliography project "Connotea" confirms this suspicion with hard facts: Formicidae are more important than HIV and cancer.

Thanks to Jochen Bihn's work, almost all of the digital versions of the ant taxonomic publications are now also accessible through Connotea, a bibliographic tool aimed at the general science audience.

Check it out, add you own tags, and let us known for innacuracies, wishes and more
