Summary

Chris Packham explores the ingenious ways in which ants have collaborated to colonise the planet like no other animal. Natural air conditioning systems keep them cool in their nests, shelters made from their own bodies protect them from the elements, and a strong sense of smell helps them to overpower animals hundreds of times larger than themselves. Plus, a look at recent research that reveals how ant colonies are capable of immunising themselves against certain diseases.
