BZS Lecture Series: “World Domination By Ants”

May 1, 2016

The latest installment in the Bermuda Zoological Society lecture series will see a talk presented by visiting scientist Dr. Jim Wetterer, Associate Professor at Florida Atlantic University, on the topic of “World Domination by Ants.”

The lecture will take place on Tuesday, May 10 at 7.00pm, with doors opening at 6.30pm. The event is free and open to the public, with a donation of $5 “gratefully accepted.”

The event poster says, “Jim’s research interest is the biogeography, ecology. and environmental impact of ants. While in Bermuda, one question he hopes to answer is what ant species are associated with Bermuda’s mangroves. On previous visits to Bermuda he studied and documented the island’s ant species, and wrote about the vanished plague ants of 19th century Bermuda.”

Them! World Domination By Ants

“His talk will be about his research with native and exotic ants around the world, and of the epic war between two dominant invasive ant species that hove been bottling each other for ecological supremacy in Bermuda for more than 60 years.

“Open to the public. Space is limited. Please visit our website to register online to attend.”
