"Antweb's mission is to develop tools to accelerate the discovery and doucumentation of ant diversity, and ensure ant information is widely accessible across a broad community."

After classifying my local ants who are not shy about invading my apartment and helping themselves to all my snacks, I was very surprised to learn that they (Linepithema humile) are an invader species from Argentina who are replacing indigenous ants in Northern California. I'm off this weekend to try and find one of the three kinds of army ants that live in the bay area.
