Ants in the Science Week in Bariloche

The Science Week was held and from 3 – 7 of September 2018, and LIHO was present. We showed the children what we study and why, using games, posters, magnifying glasses and colonies of an leaf-cuting ant present in Paragonia (Acromyrmex lobicornis) with its fungal cultivar and an omnivorous and very abundant ant in the Patagonian steppe (Dorymyrmex tener).

We are a team of researchers that employ ants mainly to answer questions of conceptual interest about topics in ecology and behavior.
