About this book

Provides an up-to-date account of current knowledge of the ecological and evolutionary causes underlying the evolution of complex animal societies. Concentrating on social insects - especially bees, wasps, ants and termites - the authors explain how the highly efficient division of labour within the insect societies has made them incredibly successful, and how queen number has a critical effect on social organisation.
