About this book

Ants are familiar to every naturalist, ecologist, entomologist, and pest control operator. The identification of the 233 species of Florida ants is technically difficult, and information on Florida ants is dispersed among hundreds of technical journal articles. Ants of Florida uses scientific drawings of ants for convenient identification. To most Florida biologists ants are currently the most inaccessible group of conspicuous and intrusive insects. Ants of Florida solves the twin problems of ant identification and the extraordinary fragmentation of natural history information about Florida ants.
