Slide Show: The Indiana Jones of Ants

News Coverage

Eco-adventurer Mark Moffett has written a new book, "Adventures Among Ants," that features spectacular ant photos.

| May 24, 2010

In her review of Harvard entomologist E.O. Wilson’s first novel,"Anthill," in the April 8 issue of The New York Review, Margaret Atwood encourages anyone interested in ants to “take a look at the daring eco-adventurer Mark Moffett’s spectacular new ant book, "Adventures Among Ants.” Moffett — who studied evolutionary biology under Wilson—has been tracking ants for decades; his research has taken him all over the world, including as a photographer for National Geographic magazine, earning him the nickname “the Indiana Jones of entomology.”
