Archer, Michael E.

The first full review of the biology and taxonomy of the vespine wasps of the world. It provides an up-to-date account of the life cycles, behaviour and population and community ecology of the hornets and yellowjacket wasps of the world, including nesting, brood care, foraging and colony usurpation behaviours. There are fully illustrated keys to the world fauna, including keys to subspecies and colour variants in addition to comments on the historical taxonomy of each species. All species apart from two (which are identical to some others) are illustrated by colour photographs. Vespine Wasps of the World should appeal to hymenopterists, pest contol workers and students and professionals researching insect behaviour. It is fully referenced with both a taxonomic and a subject index.
