Wasps of the World

In stock

A richly illustrated guide to wasps around the world

Wasps have been around since before the dinosaurs and are one of the world’s largest insect groups. More than 150,000 species have been identified, and while the black-and-yellow insect with a cinched waist may be the most familiar, most wasps are tiny parasitoids that use other insects for food. Wasps of the World provides a breath-taking look at the diverse characteristics, habitats, and lifestyles of these extraordinary insects.

·       Features more than 250 stunning colour photos of numerous species
·       Profiles more than 100 families, with absorbing commentary detailing the range, habits, and notable features of members of each family
·       Every profile includes a distribution map and a table of essential facts about size, diet, reproduction, and habitats
·       Discusses the evolution and biology of wasps, exploring the vital role they play in supporting healthy ecosystems
·       Shows how scientific research is expanding our knowledge about wasps and their behaviour
