Ted Schultz, a research entomologist at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History, holds a colony of ants from a "low" agricultural species while standing next to a colony from a "high" agricultural species. "High" farming ants typically have larger, more complex societies, and they raise domesticated fungi that depend on the ants for survival.
