About This Project
I am studying army ants of the genus Eciton in Costa Rica. These insects will give us better light on how to fight against climate change in tropical forests, especially in the tropical rain forest. Army ants are extremely sensitive to humidity variations, but, what will happen if this pattern changes? How the worker ants will respond? With low-budget equipment, I plan to measure how these ants will respond to lack or low levels of humidity.
