Why should we care about the lowly ant?

"Ants represent a form of social life so different from our own, so advanced, that it might be the kind we'd expect to find if we did find an advanced social system on another planet." Biologist E.O. Wilson backed up this statement with a startling array of insect facts in an informal conversation with students and faculty at Woodruff Library, during Emory's "Evolution Revolution" symposium. Video and audio highlights of the symposium are now available. Don't miss New York Times science writer Olivia Judson's lecture on "The Art of Seduction: Evolution, Sex and the Public."
