AntWeb, an excellent service of the California Academy of Sciences, provides users with "tools for exploring the diversity and identification of ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae). These tools have been developed to facilitate the use of ants in inventory and monitoring programs and provide ant taxonomists with images and types." At present, AntWeb offers information on all ant genera worldwide as well as highlighting ants of Madagascar and California in particular. The site provides a search engine for the comprehensive AntWeb database which contains images of, and information about, ants from all over the world. AntWeb also offers an awesome World Ants Slide Show which includes Head, Profile, and Dorsal Views of many ants.
