Locations specializing in Myrmecology

I was wondering if anyone on the forums knows of any institutions or labs that specialize in studying ants? I would like to transfer to a university that is known for their work in the world of Myrmecology.
If anyone has any advice or knows any professional within the field, any input will be helpful.

Great question I'd love to know as well. There's apparently (as I don't know personally) good etymology departments around the glove. I'm assuming your asking for north America US specifically? Texas has a good one from what I've read as does I believe it's florida and California. Which schools again I cannot say specifically as I haven't done too much research. However I can tell you the UofT is where I got my ant keys and they seem exceptionally accurate and that's a good sign. If your willing to go out of country toronto and BC both have a decent entomologist departments in canada.

As for specifically targeting myrmecology specifically I'm not too sure but Imma keep an eye out with you it's a great question.

just looking at antmaps i can see that HARVARD has about 30% of all the samples. other than that i think i saw some OHIO STATE samples too.

not that antmaps is the most reliable source...
