Description:
Welcome to the mysterious world of the wasp. This book introduces an insect that is 100 million years older, much cleverer and ten times more diverse than bees - and just as essential for the survival of the environment. Their social behaviour is the best model we have for the planet's major evolutionary transitions, and their colony structures have taught us how altruism was invented in the natural world. A world without wasps would be just as ecologically devastating as losing the bees, beetles or butterflies. And their forms, as you'll discover from this book, are indeed almost endless: nearly every ecological niche on land is inhabited by a wasp.
