Mackay, William P. , & Mackay, Emma E.

Description

This work includes keys, illustrations, descriptions and distribution maps of all of the ant species found in New Mexico, a total of 227 species and subspecies, with a listing of another 66 that probably occur in the state. It is designed to allow nearly any biologist to determine the identity of ants, written with a minimum of jargon.

Reviews

“I have had the pleasure of using the Mackays’ book, The Ants of New Mexico, and I have found it to be the best regional insect guide I have used. There are several reasons this book stands out from all the rest. It is student friendly…. Equally useful to a myrmecologist, an entomologist and the entomology or ecology student. They keys are easy to use, the illustrations are well done and the text is clear and concise….. I have had the opportunity to correctly identify many ants from these genera using the Mackays’ book. Most of the other any books available are too technical or written in such a way that they are useless for a student or a non-specialist. Ants of New Mexico will set the standard for all future regional works on ants and other insects in both style and substance.” – Richard Fagerlund, B.C.E., University of New Mexico
