About this book

Each colony of leafcutters contains up to five million workers, all the daughters of a single queen that can live for over a decade. A nest can stretch nine metres across, rise one and a half metres or more above ground and can reach over seven metres below ground. The leafcutter ants have expanded their instinctive civilisation into a virtual domination of the land from Louisiana to Patagonia.

This book, from Pulitzer Prize-winning authors, is the ultimate explanation of what a social order with a half-billion years of animal evolution has achieved.
