  • Ants Vs Queen Ants

    Most ant species are social insects, living in large cooperative groups called colonies. Two or more generations may overlap in a colony. These ant colonies are divided into three castes — males, workers and queens — and each caste perform certain tasks. Queen ants and males are part of the reproductive castes. They are the most important members of a colony because they ensure the survival of their species. Queen ants, regardless of species, often are larger than other members of their colonies. Queen ants also have thicker bodies, making them easily distinguishable. The abdomens of queen ants are larger than those of other ants, and they possess wing muscles specific to their caste. The majority of queen ants’ eggs grow up to…

  • Ant And Grasshopper Rhetorical Analysis Essay

    MORAL DILEMMA Ant and Grasshopper Stephanie Gardner Should the ant give food to the grasshopper? Yes and no. Now I say both for a variety of different reasons.

Its animalistic nature to survive compelled the Ant to work diligently to store a supply of nourishment for the winter season again. On the other hand, the Grasshopper enjoyed feeling “alive” (Conklin, 2010, p. 60) and conducted himself in a recreational manner, though he witnessed the Ant’s effort to labor for its future. “Why bother about winter?” said the Grasshopper; “we have got plenty of food at present”…

  • Parasite Wedge Theory Essay

    Hot and Cold spots of selection: Parasitoid attack of fungus-growing ants Abstract: It is known that fungus-growing ants, and their integral mutualism with fungus, allowed for their exploitation of new niches; which resulted in diversified lineages.

Diapriidae wasps are extremely common in the Neotropics; and poorly understood phylogenetically and ecologically. However,…
