Aug 30 @ 6:00 pm

Christ the King Evangelical Lutheran Church invites you to a monthly environmental education web meeting series whose theme in 2019 is environmental issues, and what you can do. 

The Wonders of Harvester Ants

In arid grasslands and deserts throughout North and South America, the most abundant insects are harvester ants.  These large and conspicuous ant species feed on seeds, which they harvest directly from plants and store in their nests. Unlike most species of ants, members of a single colony are not closely related to each other; each colony is genetically diverse. Join Professor Diane Wiernasz of the University of Houston as she discusses how the harvester ant life cycle is an adaptation to the harsh conditions of
the desert, how these ants affect the abundance and distribution of plant communities, and the sometimes surprising consequences of colony genetic variation. Come wonder at harvester ants!
