Seven subsequent chapters deal with the natural history and social biology of each of the major taxa of social and presocial vespids. Providing a wealth of information about the biology of wasps, this comprehensive, up-to-date volume will be an essential reference for entomologists, evolutionary biologists, behavioral ecologists, ethologists, and zoologists.

The answer to that question invites reflection on the relationship between specialized knowledge and conceptual progress in science. Progress clearly depends on both depth and breadth of understanding. Students of wasps and bees are particularly fortunate because there are close living relatives of the social species that provide insight into the possible pathways from ancestral solitary life histories to the threshold of eusociality.

In this edited collection, 17 internationally known authorities bring together the results of recent research on the natural history, ecology, behavior, morphology, and genetics of wasps as they pertain to the evolution of social behavior. The first part of the book opens with a review of the classification of the family Vespidae along with a revision of the subfamily Polistinae. Seven subsequent chapters deal with the natural history and social biology of each of the major taxa of social and presocial vespids. The second part of the book offers chapters on reproductive competition; worker polyethism; evolution of nest architecture, of queen number and queen control, and of exocrine glands; population genetics; the nutritional bsis of social evolution; and the nest as the locus of social life. The final chapter is a comparative discussion of social behavior in the Sphecidae, the only family of wasps besides the Vespidae in which well-developed social behavior is known. Providing a wealth of information about the biology of wasps, this comprehensive, up-to-date volume will be an essential reference for entomologists, evolutionary biologists, behavioral ecologists, ethologists, and zoologists.

Although this book is already over ten years old, it is essential reading for anyone studying wasps-- academically or otherwise. The contributed articles are written by noted authorities in their fields, most often on a taxon which they have researched for years in the field as well as in the literature. The coverage is of social wasps around the world and includes life histories, behavior,nesting architecture,etc. For the most part the writing is clear, careful, and sometimes lively. I strongly recommend the book.

There are lots of good books on bees and ants but not so many on wasps. This is a bunch of very good essays but if you buy it, be aware that is specific essays (check the contents) not one narrative and that it is a purely academic book.
