Abstract

Walter Tschinkel has been exploring the relationships between ant nest size, architecture, ant size, colony size, lifestyle and division of labour. His work has shown that we can eventually construct phylogenetic trees of ants based on their nests. In doing so, we can trace the evolution of nest-building behaviour more powerfully than by merely studying the ants’ behaviours themselves.
