Ant Fact SheetWhen she set out to study some of the smallest creatures in the Rush Valley desert in Northwestern Utah, Amy Clark (BS, BYU) began by looking at the big picture – the really big picture. Aerial drone photos, to be exact, which showed her study site bespeckled with circular spaces denuded of vegetation, each one dotted at the center with a tiny earthen mound. They weren’t miniature crop circles. They were the homes of seed harvester ants. A new fact sheet about her research is now available.
