Amazon Leaf-cutting Ants with entomologist Randy Morgan

January 6, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Randy Morgan, long-time Morpho faculty member and Curator Emeritus of Invertebrates for the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden for a deep dive into the amazing world of leaf-cutting ants!  They have a social complexity second only to humans and one of the most fascinating natural histories in the tropics! Their nests are fortress-cities with millions of task-specialized workers growing fungus for food on freshly-cut leaves. Their relentless activities both stimulate native plant growth and devastate human crops.
