E.O. Wilson - Of Ants And Men

Island Apocalypse

Wilson went down to Florida Bay, where there are thousands of mangrove islands, used an exterminator to fumigate some islands and eliminate all of its creatures. He did this so he could then carefully record the rate at which insect species re-colonized the little island. The result strikingly confirmed his hypothesis that resulted in a book called The Theory of Island Biogeography.
