The Hymenoptera is one of the largest orders of terrestrial arthropods and comprises the sawflies, wasps, ants, bees and parasitic wasps. Hymenoptera: Evolution, Biodiversity and Biological Control examines the current state of all major areas of research for this important group of insects, including systematics, biological control, behaviour, ecology, and physiological interactions between parasitoids and hosts.

The material in this volume originates from papers presented at the Fourth International Hymenoptera Conference held in Canberra, Australia in early 1999. This material has been extensively rewritten, refereed and edited; culminating in this authoritative and comprehensive collection of review and research papers on the Hymenoptera.

The authors include many world-leading researchers in their respective fields, and this synthesis of their work will be a valuable resource for researchers and students of Hymenoptera, molecular systematics and insect ecology.


Part 1 – The Hymenoptera: an introduction
Part 2 – Development and Physiology
Part 3 – Molecular Phylogenetics
Part 4 – Systematics
Part 5 – Biology, Ecology and Behaviour
Part 6 – Biodiversity
Part 7 – Biological Control
Part 8 – Hymenoptera in Education
Part 9 – Medical Effects of Hymenoptera
Part 10 – Future Research

 This volume will be a valuable resource for researchers and students of Hymenoptera, and others with interests such as molecular systematics and insect ecology. 

 “Many of the newest results in hymenopterology are given by leading experts in this well-edited book.”
Peter Buhl (Entomologiske Meddelelser 69(2) 2001)
