References

I'm only just starting to build a list of references on superorganisms, but I thought I might as well go ahead and make an essay out of it.

I already mentioned two references in the introduction, namely, Sturgeon's book More Than Human and, regarding anthills, Hofstadter's dialogue Ant Fugue.

The idea of insect colonies as superorganisms also shows up in one of Lewis Thomas' essays, On Societies as Organisms.

A recent find is the book Metaman. I haven't finished reading it, yet, but it's definitely an interesting one. I'll save the rest of my comments for another essay.
