Social Insect Distancing – Ep. 14: Gut Bacteria

In response to the ongoing pandemic, we are producing a short, no-frills daily podcast series: “Social Insect Distancing”. For our 14th episode, we (remotely) sat down with guest Dr. Manuela Ramalho, a postdoctoral researcher at Cornell University. We hope that learning a little about ants will provide cross-species comfort for anxious human readers!
