Ants of North America

Jump to navigation Jump to search
The ants of the North America are relatively well studied in comparison to other regional faunas. What does this actually mean? While there are more species to be discovered and described, these new species will likely be mostly rarer species and species that are part of some taxonomically difficult species groups. The latter remain one of the most vexing basic problems for this region and includes a few of the most speciose genera. Most notable are Formica and Myrmica. Biological information can be found for many species of ants that occur here but there still remain more holes in our knowledge than hard facts.
