Summer Research Photos
In Summer 2019, we traveled to our field site in the Florida Keys to collect turtle ants, designed and carried out experiments with those colonies in the lab to determine how they construct transport networks, and conducted field experiments with honey bees foraging on California buckwheat.

In Summer 2018, we tagged thousands of ants with tiny laser-activated IDs, and tracked their movement between nests to determine how they build and utilize transportation networks
