THE SOCIAL BIOLOGY OF ROPALIDIA MARGINATA
by Raghavendra Gadagkar
2001, 368 pages, 75 illustrations. Found throughout southern India, Ropalidia marginata is a primitively eusocial wasp – a species in which queens and workers do not differ morphologically and workers retain the ability to reproduce. In these wasp colonies, dynasties continue indefinitely when old or weakened queens are replaced by young, healthy ones and new colonies are founded throughout the year. Important study for those involved with sociality in social insects. Hardcover; 6-1/4 x 9-1/4″.
List price is $127.00. One copy available.
