Ants, Diet, & Diversity

Costa Rica
Expedition Overview

Track down the trails of some amazing ants—including "turtle," "bullet," and "army" ants—in the tropical forests of Costa Rica with Field Museum curator Corrie Moreau and her team of researchers and scientists-in-training. You'll not only find out how these elusive ants earned their odd nicknames, but you'll also discover how their diet may affect their diversity—the evolution of different traits and species—and what these trends tell us about our own health and evolutionary history!
