あらすじ・解説

Edward O. Wilson recalls his lifetime with ants - from his first boyhood encounters in the woods of Alabama to perilous journeys into the Brazilian rainforest.   

"Ants are the most warlike of all animals, with colony pitted against colony.... Their clashes dwarf Waterloo and Gettysburg", writes Edward O. Wilson in his most finely observed work in decades. In a myrmecological tour to such far-flung destinations as Mozambique and New Guinea, the Gulf of Mexico's Dauphin Island and even his parents' overgrown yard back in Alabama, Wilson thrillingly evokes his nine-decade-long scientific obsession with more than 15,000 ant species. Wryly observing that "males are little more than flying sperm missiles" or that ants send their "little old ladies into battle", Wilson eloquently relays his brushes with fire, army, and leafcutter ants, as well as more exotic species: the Matabele, Africa's fiercest warrior ants; Costa Rica's Basiceros, the slowest ants in the world; and New Caledonia's Myrmecia apicalis, the most endangered of them all. 

A personal account by one of our greatest scientists, Tales from the Ant World is an indispensable volume for any lover of the natural world.

Worth it & fun

I listen to this before I sleep. but this doesn’t make me fall asleep, it relaxes and educates me. Fun to learn about nature & take my mine off current events. I now look at ants in a different way- especially the ones in my kitchen

Great content, but I wasn't crazy about the reader

Wilson is more knowledgeable about ants than maybe any person in the world and he tells his story well. Many fascinating facts. But I would have chosen a different reader and had to speed it up 10%
