Integrating the immense, but scattered, published data with contributions from preeminent active researchers, this book presents the most up-to-date information on foraging ecology, individual search and social recruitment behaviors, and theoretical models of foraging and food exploitation among ants, bees, and wasps alike. It employs mathematical models to map coordinate processes and unites traditional studies with theoretical approaches. By cross referencing information between chapters and concluding with a final synthesis chapter, the authors ensure a complete understanding of the interrelationship between various disciplines regarding foraging and food exploitation in social insects.
