About this book

Language: German

Originally published in French, this photographic field guide covers every species of ant found in Britain and Europe.

More than 400 species of ant can be found in Europe, and Die Ameisen Europas covers them all,with detailed descriptions for more than 150 of the more commonly encountered.

The species accounts include information on field characteristics, confusion species, habitat and biology, and appear along with accurate distribution maps. Die Ameisen Europas also features a comprehensive introduction to ant ecology and guidance on where to look for ants and how to study them in the field, a glossary, an overview of families, and a detailed, illustrated identification key.

Nearly 600 superb photos are included, showing species close-up to highlight identification features and in their natural habitats. This is the first such guide to these insects, bringing these crucial yet often overlooked insects into the spotlight.
