Bio: I am a behavioral ecologist working mostly on diseases in ant societies. I have a strong interest in how knowledge in human societies is spread, retained and used. I and Marcel Salathe are the developers of PlantVillage which aims to spread knowledge of food plants.
I am absolutely fascinated with the global challenge of feeding 9 billion people in the coming decades. Here I explain this some more and relate it to my Zombie ant work If you want much more detail on the role of plant pathogens in human society see also here
Finally, something about zombie ants themselves
