Dorn, R. I. (2014): Ants as a powerful biotic agent of olivine and plagioclase dissolution. In Geology. DOI: 10.1130/G35825.1.

On enhanced weathering. "Ants, thus, have potential to provide clues on how to enhance contemporary carbon sequestration efforts to transform Ca-Mg silicates and CO2 into carbonate. Given that ants underwent a great iversification and biomass expansion over the Cenozoic, a speculative implication of this research is that ant enhancement of Ca-Mg silicate dissolution might have been an influence on Cenozoic cooling."
