    4. Drawing ants One of the things holding up publication of the book is the need to draw several ants, where photographs are not available. I made a ‘policy decision’ at the beginning of the process not to use photos of dead ants in this book; these are freely available on the internet from sites such as AntWeb. THE ANT. If you look at the sixth verse of the sixth chapter of Proverbs, you will read, "Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise." A sluggard, you know, is a man, or woman, or child, who does not love to read or to do any kind of work, but likes to sleep or be idle all the day long. Do you think you were ever acquainted.

List of major non-fiction books on ants Title Author Year of Publication Publisher Language Subject Notes Natural History of Ants, The: Réaumur, René Antoine Ferchault de; translation and annotation by William Morton Wheeler: A.A. Knopf: English translation and French text: Natural History: A classic book on the natural history of ants.

    Whilst the book nicely covers many of the most important ecological aspects of ants, it also articulates for us some of the “values” of ants – clearly, not a value in the way we may teach our children to be kind or thoughtful – but, rather innate values, which ensure a colony (and ultimately species) survive and flourish. From the Arctic to South Africa - one finds them everywhere: Ants. Making up nearly 15% of the entire terrestrial animal biomass, ants are impressive not only in quantitative terms, they also fascinate by their highly organized and complex social system. Their caste system, the division of labor, the origin of altruistic behavior and the complex forms of chemical communication makes them the 5/5(3).

The book I'm looking for is a dystopian one from the 70's or 80's. This black girl goes on an expedition with a group of scientists to a land that they thought no one lived people in their society are all black, and they have a class system where darker skin is considered better.

I had read Wilson's and Holldobler's popular account of Ant Societies: Journey to the Ants and was fascinated. I saw The Ants in a bookstore and was amazed by the book, its breadth of subject, physical layout, and photography.

The book is intended for specialist, but is readable by anyone with a basic background in natural history/5. We Are the Ants had a few meaningful moments and one or two quotes that resonated with me, but all in all, too many things irritated me too much for me to rate this higher than 1 1/2 stars.

I spent about 85% (more than pages!!) of this book wanting to give up on it, but since everyone loves it so much, I decided to finish it, and give it a /5(K).
