About this book

British Hymenoptera: Glossary for Use with Identification Keys was written as a result of trying to come to terms with and reconcile old and new keys, often using quite different names for the same part. Describes the terms in two main categories: body parts and general descriptive terms, such as colours and specific adjectives. Knowledge of these is vital in coming to terms with keys and British Hymenoptera: Glossary for Use with Identification Keys has relieved the user of a great deal of research. It is being added-to as omissions are found, or when new keys are produced. It includes terms used for body parts in keys going from 1896 to the present day (some of which are still in use), as well as the more obscure adjectives used in descriptions. Of use to anyone interested in the whole field of Hymenoptera.
