We were the proud hosts of Dr. Scotty Yang’s research group and his colleagues from Taiwan National University. His research group specializes in studying the patterns of ┬ádispersal in a variety of invasive ant species. We were treated to a wide range of topics, including a few fascinating finding about Wolbachia distributions in invasive ants.
