This is a photo from Simon Garnier’s lab at NJIT. With Chris Reid and Courtney Rockenbach, they’re trying to rigorously characterize the process of bridge building in army ants (Eciton in particular). They’ve induced them to make bridges up to 12cm in length (that’s about 12 body lengths).

Air conditioning already in Arizona?

It was 81 degrees in the apartment when we got home at 6pm today, March 9. I guess air-conditioning season is emerging. Fortunately for us, we don’t have daylight savings time in Arizona. Still, our poor dog has to deal with the heat at home. :(
