Presented by Dr. Kal Ivanov, Ph.D., Assistant Curator of Invertebrate Zoology at the Virginia Museum of Natural History

Ants are often seen as pests not to be tolerated in our habitation, but these tiny creatures are more than just a nuisance. They represent a vital part of many terrestrial environments, with important contributions to proper ecosystem functioning. In his talk, Dr. Ivanov will focus on some of the intriguing aspects of ants’ everyday life, from serving as living storage containers to waging wars for resources.
