Entomologist
ENTOMOLOGY (from Greek ἔντομον, _entomon_ "insect"; and -λογία, _-logia_) is the scientific study of insects , a branch of zoology . In the past the term "insect" was more vague, and historically the definition of entomology included the study of terrestrial animals in other arthropod groups or other phyla , such as arachnids , myriapods , earthworms , land snails , and slugs . This wider meaning may still be encountered in informal use. Like several of the other fields that are categorized within zoology , entomology is a taxon -based category; any form of scientific study in which there is a focus on insect-related inquiries is, by definition, entomology. Entomology therefore overlaps with a cross-section of topics as diverse as molecular genetics , behavior , biomechanics , biochemistry , systematics , physiology , developmental biology , ecology , morphology , and paleontology . At some 1.3 million described species, insects account for more than two-thirds of all known organisms, date back some 400 million years, and have many kinds of interactions with humans and other forms of life on earth

Professor
PROFESSOR (commonly abbreviated as _Prof._) is an academic rank at universities and other post-secondary education and research institutions in most countries. Literally, _professor_ derives from Latin as a "person who professes" being usually an expert in arts or sciences, a teacher of the highest rank. In much of the world, the unqualified word "professor" is used formally to indicate the highest academic rank, informally known as "full professor". In some countries, the word _professor_ is only used in this sense, whereas in other countries, the word _professor_ is also used in titles of lower ranks such as associate professor and assistant professor . Professors conduct original research and commonly teach undergraduate , graduate , or professional courses in their fields of expertise. In universities with graduate schools, professors may mentor and supervise graduate students conducting research for a thesis or dissertation . Professors typically hold a Ph.D. , another doctorate or a different terminal degree . Some professors hold a master\'s degree or a professional degree, such as an M.D. , as their highest degree

Hymenoptera
Apocrita Symphyta HYMENOPTERA is a large order of insects , comprising the sawflies , wasps , bees , and ants . Over 150,000 living species of Hymenoptera have been described, in addition to over 2,000 extinct ones. Females typically have a special ovipositor for inserting eggs into hosts or places that are otherwise inaccessible. The ovipositor is often modified into a stinger . The young develop through holometabolism (complete metamorphosis )—that is, they have a worm-like larval stage and an inactive pupal stage before they mature.

The Ancient Greek ὑμήν (_hymen_) for membrane provides a plausible etymology for the term because species in this order have membranous wings

Queens are 4.2–6.4 millimetres (0.17–0.25 in) long, much smaller than other species of ants. These ants will set up quarters in the ground, in cracks in concrete walls, in spaces between boards and timbers, even among belongings in human dwellings

Harvesting Ant
HARVESTER ANT is a common name for any of the species or genera of ants that collect seeds (called seed predation ), or mushrooms as in the case of Euprenolepis procera
Euprenolepis procera
, which are stored in the nest in communal chambers called granaries . Seed
Seed
harvesting by some desert ants is an adaptation to the lack of typical ant resources such as prey or honeydew from hemipterans . Harvester ants increase seed dispersal and protection, and provide nutrients that increase seedling survival of the desert plants. In addition, ants provide soil aeration through the creation of galleries and chambers, mix deep and upper layers of soil, and incorporate organic refuse into the soil. CONTENTS * 1 Seed

During the day, these ants search the savannas for vegetation and plant seeds, and carry them along back to their nest
