  • People outside, standing and looking at something being held by one of them. Caption: and look very carefully just beneath the wing,

    Examines developments in zoology and agriculture that are challenging scientists, business leaders, and government officials alike. With commentary from Lori Williams of the National Invasive Species Council, it studies a disturbing increase in nonnative and often harmful insect populations on American soil. North Carolina's sprawling hog farms and their growing waste-disposal problem are also investigated, with input from farmers, their neighbors, and EPA officials. Also offers insights into the 17-year cicada life cycle-featuring an interview with renowned entomologist and University of Maryland professor Mike Raupp.

  • A person in a white suit, hat with mesh face covering, and gloves that come past the forearm. Caption: Lets put the gloves on to finish off the complete outfit.

    Michael Goodisman is digging up the dirt on yellow jackets' peculiar lives by studying their nests, behavior, and genetic make-up. With support from the National Science Foundation, he is getting a better understanding of what drives their complex family relationships. Yellow jackets, like honey bees and fire ants, exist in a sophisticated social hierarchy. Unlike other animals that travel in packs or swim together, these social insects will literally sacrifice their own survival in support of their hives, nests, and colonies.

  • Person pointing at the ground. Caption: study the ants as an invasive species

    Invasive animals are often most abundant in habitats impacted by humans. Understanding why this is true may reveal important insights about the ecological impact of many invasive species. The invasive fire ant, Solenopsis invicta, is a notoriously pesky species that benefits when humans disturb natural areas. With support from the National Science Foundation, Dr. Joshua King at the University of Central Florida and Dr. Walter Tschinkel at Florida State University have been exploring the underlying causes and consequences of the association of fire ants with human-altered ecosystems. Part of the National Science Foundation Series “Science Nation.”
