    About This Project

    The vast majority of invertebrates remain undiscovered and understudied. This is especially true for Singapore's ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae). Since the last published inventory in 1915, native ants have received very little study, despite the country's placement within a geographic hotspot for biodiversity.

    My goal is to discover and document the ants of Singapore. Current work (see below) suggests that new species are waiting to be described, and I am thrilled to share this journey with you!
