Welcome to

Antbase now provides for the first time access to all the ant species of the world, one of the ecologically most important groups of animals worldwide.

Antbase is a collaborative effort between scientists from around the world, aiming at providing the best possible access to the wealth of information on ants, to fulfill the conservation needs of the International Union for the Study of Social Insects (IUSSI), and the Species Survival Commission of the World Conservation Union (IUCN).

Antbase, together with the Hymenoptera On-line Database, is the data provider for ants to the Integrated Taxonomic Information System, ITIS.

Antbase is being built and maintained at the American Museum of Natural History (Donat Agosti) and the Ohio State University (Norman F. Johnson).
