The Importance of Ants... 

I have always suspected, that ants are not just very important in any
ecosystem in the world, but in our scientific world as well. Nature's
bibliography project "Connotea" (http://www.connotea.org/cloud) confirms
this suspicion with hard facts: Formicidae are more important then HIV and

Thanks to Jochen Bihn's work, almost all of the digital versions of the ant
taxonomic publications from antbase.org are now also accessible through
Connotea, a bibliographic tool aimed at the general science audience.

Check it out, add you own tags, and let us known for inaccuracies, wishes
and more
