Some ants have evolved from hunter-gatherers into farmers, domesticating other insects and growing crops for food.
Entomologist Mark Moffett loves ants. He's devoted his career to studying the tiny insects: how they move, what they eat, when they attack their prey. Moffett's new book, Adventures Among Ants, details his explorations around the world, tracking many a species through jungle forests and remote mountain passes. More at NPR.org
