The Evolution of Social Wasps

James H. Hunt

The Evolution of Social Wasps resolves one of evolutions most intriguing problems - the origin of insect sociality. It also challenges conceptual approaches that have dominated three decades of social behavior research. Hunt's innovative model integrates life history, nutrition, development and ecology. His broad synthesis of empirical knowledge on social wasps should interest evolution biologists, behavioral ecologists, or entomologists alike.
