World's first ant map launched in Hong Kong

Dr Benoit Guenard (C), Assistant Professor at the HKU School of Biological Sciences, and his team members display ant species at the Hong Kong University (HKU) on August 6, 2015The world’s first ever ant map showing the distribution of the tiny industrious creatures around the globe was launched Thursday by the University of Hong Kong in a bid to shed more light on the insect world. The colourful interactive online map (antmaps.org), which took four years to complete, displays the geographic locations of nearly 15,000 types of ants, with the Australian state of Queensland home to the highest number of native species at more than 1,400. “(Insects are) one of the main groups we need to focus on when we talk about biodiversity,” said Benoit Guenard, one of the co-founders of the map.
