Ants rule earth's ecosystems, but a remarkable group of beetles have got one up on the ants. The nest is their home, the ant brood their food, but the ants don't even notice them. How did they evolve this remarkable skill?
Ants are the glue that hold forests together. But Madagascar’s hotspots of biodiversity are vanishing, and along with them unknown species. An estimated 40% of the island’s species have already perished through human encroachment.
