About This Item

Pages: vi, 178 p.

Ants are abundant everywhere and live in highly organized communities; yet comparatively few naturalists are engaged in the investigation of their behavior, which in many respects still baffles us. A vast field offering rich rewards is open to anyone - amateur or professional - who cares to study these fascinating little creatures, and in this book Dr. Skaife, whose researches on the subject are famous and have occupied him for nearly forty years, tells in simple, non-technical language how to capture ants and keep them, how to make artificial nests for them, how to manipulate them experimentally - all without any skill and negligible cost. he also describes enthrallingly the remarkable experiments that he himself has carried out and the discoveries he has made.

About Breck Bartholomew Natural History Books

Specializing in antiquarian natural history books. Breck Bartholomew Natural History books, formerly Bibliomania, originally opened in 1995 as a herpetological bookstore. In 2016 my focus broadened to cover all natural history subjects as well as some related sciences, but narrowed to just rare and antiquarian books.
