The Superorganism

I’m currently reading Hoelldobler & Wilson?s The Superorganism and just ran across this post by Alex Wild which claims that

the whole section of The Superorganism devoted to the evolutionary history of ants is muddy, incoherent, and entirely at odds with the increasingly clear picture emerging from modern studies of ant relationships.

Alex is inaugurating Scienceblogs’ new photoblog, Photo Synthesis, and will be guest-blogging for a month, so wander on over and check it out. His own blog is also worth a read and his photos (here and here) are excellent.
