Which Species Really Runs The World? Steve and Ben discuss the impact that small species like ants and termites can have on our world, as well as a look at how life on Earth may have flourished a lot earlier than we ever imagined. Watch below:
Humans believe that they are the dominant species on this planet given how much of the planet we have taken over and how little we are at threat from other species. But is this actually the case? Biological scientists from Britain and Singapore have embarked on a novel research project to determine the effects that ants and termites in particular have on the Earth’s ecosystem and how their activities can have significant impacts on plants in tropical ecosystems. Steve and Ben discuss the study and the overall impact that such small species could have on our world, as well as a look at how life on Earth may have flourished a lot earlier than we ever imagined.
