Featured Scientist: James C. Trager, Ph.D., Naturalist / Myrmecologist

Did you know there are almost 150 different species of ants known from Missouri? Accounting for this diversity is that Missouri is at the crossroads of the formerly glaciated North, never glaciated South, the Eastern Broadleaf Forest (including the Ozarks), and the Central Grassland biomes. U.S. entomologist and naturalist James Trager has been sampling and identifying ants in Missouri since 1988, and in retirement has dedicated himself to preparing a guide to this mostly unseen component of Missouri’s biological diversity.
