Ants at the Encyclopedia of Life

The much-hyped Encyclopedia of Life has started adding content for the ants, mostly by harvesting photos and text from Antweb.  The interface is a little odd, as EoL layers Antweb’s up-to-date information over the obsolete ITIS taxonomy, losing taxa whose status has changed over the past decade.  We clearly need a centralized taxonomic infrastructure if EoL is going to run smoothly.  As it stands, we’re still better off just going to Antweb directly.
