New Global Map Of Ant Biodiversity Reveals Areas That May Hide Undiscovered Species
Presented by Michigan News

Nate Sanders, U-M professor, ecologist, and study co-author, discusses the development of a high-resolution map to estimate and visualize the global diversity of ants, an essential part of the ecosystem. Sanders wants to locate high diversity centers of invertebrates for future research and environmental protection reasons, and the map will act as a resource regarding biological and evolutionary questions. The faculty expert further highlights research from the study and the implications of the findings.
