Unlike ants themselves, ant communication is no small matter. These tiny creatures have a very sophisticated communication system, and communication drives every facet of their society much like it drives every part of our society. This book presents a fascinating view of the science of ant communication.

This book has been reviewed by Dr. Paul Mazzocchi, who calls it a "...beautiful essay on ant pheromones. It is well worth reading as an example of the complexity of the animal world and the interdependence of behavior and chemistry, the world of chemical ecology".

Bonus: Both general interest and technical versions are included as two-books-in-one.


  • Nice overview

    Ants certainly are amazing creatures. Additionally, it was interesting to compare both versions to see how scientists use language to be more precise.
