Nachdem doch ziemlich viele Ameisen aus Afrika angeboten werden, hat der eine oder andere vielleicht doch Interesse an diesem Werk:
Ants of Africa and Madagascar
A Guide to the Genera, vol. 2
Brian L. Fisher, Barry Bolton 2016,
Paperback, 512 pages
Across the Afrotropical and Malagasy regions, ants are one of the most conspicuous and ecologically dominant animal groups. From driver ants to weaver ants, there are over 2,000 species in Africa alone and over 600 in Madagascar.
Ants of Africa and Madagascar introduces readers to the fascinating and diverse ant fauna of the Afrotropical and Malagasy regions. Featuring illustrated keys to subfamilies, separate keys to Afrotropical and Malagasy ant genera, and distribution maps, it also describes diagnostic characters, explores ant ecology and natural history, and includes a list of all currently recognized ant species in the regions. This detailed guide is an essential tool for entomologists and myrmecologists working with and learning about this diverse population of Formicidae.
Brian Fisher and Barry Bolton's just published Ants of Africa and Madagascar is a must-have for anyone interested in the biology and identification of ants, even those never intending to visit Africa or Madagascar. It sets a new standard for regional treatments, bringing together a vast amount of information and illustrations in a very accessible and well presented format. Congratulations to both on pulling off such a huge task.
“Ants of Africa and Madagascar is a seminal contribution to ant classification, opening up the last and least explored of the three great tropical continental faunas. The opportunities it provides for ecology and sociobiology are immense.”—Edward O. Wilson, University Research Professor Emeritus, Harvard University
