New Homes for Ants: socialism in insects!

New Homes for Ants: socialism in insects!

Posted Tue, 19 Jul 2016 21:05:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

We do need to study other organisms in order to improve our understanding of not only nature, but chemistry, sociability and simple organisation. You would think that a colonising ant would have little to show, but the way in which individuals are empowered, despite that despotic Black Queen, are very revealing !

So much intriguing information is becoming available about our genetic links with the primates, but there is competition from those species who can signal to each other in devious ways, or even tell us a thing or two, checking us out and giving us an idea of what and how they think.

How do we rule this planet? Mostly inadvertently, it seems. The numbers of extinctions are only matched by the displaced species which have become greater in number as they struggle to establish in new niches and habitats, including the pathogens, the unwanted and the invasive.

Many kaka have been bred in island and mainland island habitats created for them in New Zealand. Here we look at new research on their cognition, using high tech facilities for recording data on individuals and ageing.

How can we design experiments to test just how bright animals can be in relation to their own environment and even our own when we consider species that have associated with us and our strange contraptions throughout our short history of technology. The results of investigations tell us something much more than just how cognitive some species are compared to others. This great yet simple work tells us how the ecosystem works in real time.
