Other ant websites

AntWeb provides tools for exploring the diversity and identification of ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae). These tools have been developed to encourage the study of ants, to facilitate the use of ants in inventory and monitoring programs, and to provide ant taxonomists with access to images of type specimens. Currently, AntWeb contains global coverage of all ant genera, with more detailed information available for certain geographic areas. Antweb is hosted by the California Academy of Sciences.

Antbase is a collaborative effort between scientists from around the world, aiming at providing the best possible access to the wealth of information on ants, one of the ecologically most important groups of animals worldwide. Antbase is being built and maintained at the American Museum of Natural History (Donat Agosti) and the Ohio State University (Norman F. Johnson).

Formicidae: identification guides
Pictoral identification guides for ants from all over the world are available from Discover Life.
