Dr. Bernhard Seifert of the "Senckenberg Museum für Naturkunde Görlitz" is one of the best known German ant researchers. After having published the most important ant species of Germany from his famous book: "Ameisen: beobachten, bestimmen", we continue our collaboration with a new section on the Ants of Central Europe. This new part of our website is a teamwork between, Dr. Seifert and the Natural History Museum Vienna, where Daniela Magdalena Sorger took the pictures of these beautiful ants. Have a look...
