I am interested in the preservation of certain species of ants. This is an important topic because whether we realize it or not ants play a large role in our ecosystem by doing jobs like digging through the soil and leveling the nutrients within. The problem that I see with my topic is that people only see ants as pests, often destroying their homes. I would like to learn more about the ants way of life. There are thousands of different species of ants and all of them have evolved in order to thrive in certain environments. I think that we could learn a lot from observing their way of life. With so many species, many of them have different jobs, it would be interesting to find out just how much ants contribute to our lives as human beings. When you think about it the contributions that ants make to our environment are pretty obvious. Thy fertilize the soil, dig tunnels that help nutrients get to plants, pollinate plants, and help to carry many different types of seeds in order to spread the growth of vast vegetation. This topic needs to be researched more because we could be inhibiting ants from doing their job and effecting the ecosystem that is acting around us. Information on this topic can be found in several locations like websites such as national geographic or antark.net, I could also find information on a database like the gale research database.
