Billions of ants help keep NYC streets clean | Perrin Ireland | onEarth.org

Billions of ants help keep NYC streets clean | Perrin Ireland | onEarth.org | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

Under the cement that paves New York City lives a bustling society of tiny janitors. I’m talking about ants. There are 16.7 billion of these arthropods in Manhattan. The scavengers patrol our parks, planters, grassy medians, and cracks in the pavement, where they nosh on the food waste we leave behind, consuming intimidating quantities.

 

The ants work together in colonies, descending on discarded hot dogs with devastating speed, and this tiny utility they offer Manhattan is mighty when multiplied. Not even Hurricane Sandy could stop these little guys from hitting the streets and carrying off nibbles as much as 5,000 times their bodyweight.

In a recent study, scientists from the University of North Carolina left out the leanest hot dogs, fattiest potato chips, and sweetest cookies all over Manhattan and watched to see who came for dinner. They found greater ant diversity than expected and hungry colonies in highway medians outeating their park neighbors. Without food-waste removal of any kind, we’d be surrounded by an amount of litter that seriously reduces well-being for humans.

I spoke with entomologists Amy Savage and Elsa Youngsteadt last week about everything from the importance of urban ecosystems to the peculiar penchant that some ants have for honeydew, a.k.a. sweet, sweet insect poop.

Claudia Stevenson's curator insight, December 29, 2014 2:48 AM

Although selfie's are usually associated with vanity and materialism - they pose a huge threat to your online identity. Incriminating and  inappropriate selfies are just some of the ways your online identity can be tarnished. If you think future job prospects are looking bright for you - think again. Photographs throughout your online social media platforms can be damaging for not only yourself and future job prospects - but for other people as well. Always think before you post.

Jossie Orense's curator insight, May 16, 2015 7:17 PM

Selfies have reached a global scale offering insider accounts of current news. Unlike regular photos, selfies document visual memory or evidence of being at historic events. O'Toole explains that selfies are a "form of radical subjectivity, a form of self-authorship that transcends the usual modes of publication." With globalization and technology, it seems logical that the selfie phenomenon would touch all corners of the industrialized world.

this is crazy

Kristin Mandsager San Bento's curator insight, January 22, 2015 7:03 PM

This makes absolutely no sense to me.  How does the freshness of the scallop even last a trip like this?  What is the transportation time back and forth? 

BrianCaldwell7's curator insight, March 16, 3:40 PM

This type of nonsense only makes sense in a world where the bottom dollar is the only way to way to evaluate decisions.  However, resource conservation (think of the food miles!), fair labor prices, and the preservation of local cultural economies are certainly issues that should be considered.
