Field Guide to the Ants of New England

Senior ecologist Aaron Ellison's Field Guide to the Ants of New England has been named one of 4 winners of the 2013 New England Society (NES) Book Awards. The awards honor books of merit that celebrate New England and its culture.

In a press release, NES Book Awards Committee Chair Caroline Camougis stated, “The 2013 winners represent excellence in New England-themed writing across a wide range of subjects, from the topical Gardner museum heist and the role of Maine in modern art to theologian Roger Williams and the ants of New England. We are delighted to honor this diverse group of books and their authors."

To accomodate the field guide, the committee added a new award category this year: "Specialty Title," for books that fall outside the parameters of Fiction, Nonfiction, and Art & Photography.
