Get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Evolutionary Biology & Behavior Research Lab, where you can get your questions answered by our resident experts and enjoy special access to a normally restricted area of the Museum. Join Lab Head Dr. Adrian Smith to learn more about the latest research on the behavior, communication, and natural history of insects, with a particular focus on social insects such as ants. See also how insects and biology serve as a source of inspiration and innovation for our researchers, in partnership with designers and artists, on human design applications.
