Happy Belated Birthday E.O. Wilson

Wilson's foreword for Ant Ecology acknowledges the leaps and bounds he has witnessed in the study of ants throughout his 65 year research career. He muses that the myrmecological torch might be passed on in this volume, having been wrested from his and "a few other old timers'" grasp. Ant Ecology synthesises knowledge from across disciplines and creates a direction for the future of ant ecology.

We wish Ed Wilson a belated happy birthday, and wish we were at the World Science Festival to celebrate his contribution to our understanding of the natural world. Thanks for endorsing our efforts Professor!
