Event Details

Down to a Science is an ongoing Science Café, a casual forum where leading scientists discuss their research with the public. Ants may be tiny, but they play a huge role in their ecosystems. In this talk, Dr. Brian Fisher describes the unique behaviors and incredible adaptations of our planet’s most charismatic small animals. See how ants farm, hunt and tend “herds of livestock”. Learn how primitive Dracula ants feed on their sisters’ blood.

Watch the fastest recorded movement of any animal — a feisty ant with lightening-quick jaws that Dr. Fisher filmed with one of the world’s most advanced high-speed cameras. You’ll also learn about Dr. Fisher’s conservation efforts in Madagascar and gain new respect for our smallest neighbors.
