[New Scientist]: Global warming might shrink ant workers by as much as a third, says
Michael Kaspari at the University of Oklahoma, US, and the Smithsonian
Tropical Research Institute in Panama, who carried out the study: ‘And
since ant species with small workers appear to be particularly
successful at invading, ant invasions – already destructive – may
become more common in a warming world.’

Who’d o’ thunk it. (I’m going to guess this story will be ridiculed by
those ideologically opposed to global warming — and science — and
added to the ledger by the big insurance companies’ actuaries, who need
to take risk seriously.)
