On previous visits to Bermuda he studied and documented the island’s ant species, and wrote about the vanished plague ants of 19th century Bermuda. His talk will be about his research with native and exotic ants around the world, and of the epic war between two dominant invasive ant species that have been battling each other for ecological supremacy in Bermuda for more than 60 years.

This event is open to the public and space is limited.  Entry to the lectures is free, although a donation of $5 is gratefully accepted.  To secure your spot, visit www.bamz.org and register online.
