What do some of our smallest creatures have to tell us about the bigger impacts of climate change? A great deal, it turns out, says Professor Nigel Andrew, from the University of New England’s Insect Ecology Lab. He believes the common meat ant, found in large numbers across much of Australia, may prove an accurate Read More…
