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 http://tinyurl.com/9wzn687 If you want much more detail on the role of plant pathogens in human society see also here http://tinyurl.com/ayjxz7g
Finally, something about zombie ants themselves http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2irXpA...
