Learn To Love Ants is an introduction to to one of our planet’s most numerous insect groups, introducing aspects of their biology, ecology and behaviour. Important ecosystem engineers and highly successful social insects, ants can be found almost anywhere and they display a host of different behaviours depending on species, habitat, or caste (whether they’re queens, workers or soldiers). On this course, you will learn all about their hidden empires and their fascinating secret lives.
This course combines the use of classroom-led learning and outside learning opportunities led by one of our ants tutors to give individuals the skills and confidence to learn more about the lives and ecological roles of ants.
Please note that this course is NOT a species identification course and will only go as far as categorising ants into subfamilies.
