Our project has two goals. First, we want to enable scientists to use the timing of ant nuptial flights to monitor environmental changes on a global scale.
Second, we want to help people collect ants in a less destructive and disruptive manner.
To achieve these goals, we have developed AntNupTracker
, a mobile app that allows reporting of ant nuptial flights from the field in order to build an open and publicly-accessible
database of ant nuptial flight records.
This database can either be browsed in the app or downloaded
in the format of your choice.
Whether you are a beginner or a professional myrmecologist, we invite you to share in our passion for ants and contribute to this citizen science project!
and download the app to begin!
Enjoy tracking those ants!
