First printing. Shows the world from the ant's point of view, as the plant underground gardens and harvest crops, raise other insects a slivestock, build their own roadways and bridges, and communicate using a commplex system of chemical and tactile messages, make war, stage bizarre tournaments, and display such feats of altruism and loyalty to their mates that when Darwin learned of ant behavior he thought his theory of evolution by natural selection was in trouble. Follows renowned field biologists Edward O. Wilson and William L. Brown Jr. on the nature reserve of La Selva in Costa Rica. Previous owner must have creased the beginning page of each chapter about 1/4" all along the side (actually kind of cool!), else fine in fine dust jacket.
