Ants of Borneo

The names Aenictinae, Ceraphachyine, Dorylinae, and Dolichoderinae may not mean much to those outside the world of entomology, but these are but a few of the subfamilies of ants profiled on this nice website designed by Martin Pfeiffer of the University of Ulm. These subfamilies of ants are all present in Kinabulu National Park in Malaysia, a tropical rainforest that has the notable distinction of containing the world's most diverse ant population. Visitors to the site can browse images of over 130 species of ants (divided by their respective subfamily), presented in more than 520 high resolution photographs. Culled from the work of a number of different researchers, the ants photographed for this site were mostly collected during fieldwork that took place between 1991 and 2002. Those persons unfamiliar with the world of the ants of Borneo will have a most intimate understanding of these fascinating creatures and some sense of their sheer diversity after traversing this site.
