School of Ants: Crowdsourced Biogeography

Dr. Andrea Lucky and her team bring us a pretty interesting crowd sourced experiment on picnics most feared enemy, ants. All you have to do to take partis collect some ants from an urban environment (Apparently pecan sandies are the optimal bait for this purpose), send them in to Dr. Lucky and her team will identify the species (e.g. Solenopsis xyloni) and post the results to their interactive map.
