About this book

Across the Afrotopical 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 region. 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.

Media reviews

"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

"Ants of Africa and Madagascar is an extremely valuable reference resource. The authors have done a superb job of collating and summarizing the current state of knowledge so that specialists and nonspecialists alike will be able to learn from it and put it to practical use."
– Peter G. Hawkes, Professional Natural Scientist in Zoological Science and manager of AfriBugs
