Ants do not Twitter

Social insects and their extraordinary social networks were touted in a leading German newspaper, Frankfurter Allgemeine, on Jan. 26, following a talk by ASU scientists from the Center for Social Dynamics and Complexity in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

The article featured the research of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Bert Hölldobler and Manfred Laubichler, professors in ASU's School of Life Sciences, who were visiting the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin (Institute for Advanced Study). 

Hölldobler co-authored of “The Superorganism: the beauty, elegance, and strangeness of insect societies” with his longtime collaborator and legendary sociobiology guru Edward O. Wilson, emeritus professor of Harvard University.
