The Earth Dwellers

PDF-file by Erich Hoyt

The Earth Dwellers PDF ebook download As Monty Python would say, "And now for something completely different" — in this case an unexpected pleasure.Of course, I'm probably the near-ideal audience for this book, as I'm fascinated by both insects and the people who study them.

I'm also a very big fan of E.O. Wilson, one of the two myrmecologists (that's "ant scientist" for most of us) profiled in the book, as he and his colleague, William Brown, study ant colonies in the Costa Rican rainforest.What came as a surprise, though, was how engagingly Hoyt wrote — with wry humor and vivid details.I was hooked and read the book more or less straight through (which is something I don't often do, being a meandering, easily distracted reader).

Ants are social insects, and an overarching theme of the book was that they do many things human societies do — enslave others, conduct wars, raise livestock, farm, engage in vast "civil engineering" projects, and more.If you haven't spent much time observing ants, you're almost guaranteed to do so after finishing this book.Fascinating stuff!
