Alumni, Drs. Kari Ryder Wilkie and Amy Mertl, along with Prof. James Traniello, reported in PLoS One on the results of the first inventory of the ants of Tiputini.   Identifying 489 species in only 0.16 square kilometers and projecting actual richness to be 647-736 species, this region of western Amazonia appears to support the most diverse ant fauna yet recorded.
