Abstract: The world wide web provides many resources that are useful to the myrmecologist. Here I provide a brief introduction to the types of information currently available, and to recent developments in data provision over the internet which are likely to become important resources for myrmecologists in the near future. I discuss the following types of web site, and give some of the most useful examples of each: taxonomy, identification and distribution; conservation; myrmecological literature; individual species sites; news and discussion; picture galleries; personal pages; portals.
