About this book

Ants share a vibrant and complex communal life and remarkable abilities to communicate with each other. The Ant Collective presents the world of ants as you have never seen it before, using hyperrealistic, computer-generated imagery that shows 3D-like views of activities inside and outside a thriving nest of red wood ants. With chapters on topics ranging from the establishment and construction of the nest to the birth of an ant trail and colony relocation, this one-of-a-kind book brilliantly integrates informative descriptions with the illustrations, drawing on the latest science to reveal the innermost workings of the colony and enable you to explore the ant collective as if you are there.

- Features a wealth of naturalistic 3D-like illustrations and schematic infographics
- Depicts the anatomy of ants, the architecture of their nests, their interactions with the environment and other animals, and their collective social behaviour
- Follows the annual life cycle of the colony
- Provides an incredible, up-close look at ant reproduction, defence, foraging, nesting, division of labour, and more
- Packed with information about the biology, ecology, and communication skills of these marvellous insects

Originally published in German in 2022 by Kosmos as Das Ameisenkollektiv.
