About this book

Language: French

Bees, bumblebees, wasps and ants are close relatives in the order Hymenoptera, with more than 11,000 species known from Europe. These insects show some of the most extraordinary behaviours of the animal kingdom: next to the social species of bees and ants, the reader of this guide will discover the spider wasps of the family Pompilidae that kill spiders, the mason bees that nests in empty snail shells, or wasps of the genus Eumenes that enclose living caterpillars in clay cells ...

This guide describes representatives of each of the major families and sub-families, in order to provide an overview of the diversity of their forms and lifestyles. Reviewed and updated, this new edition takes into account the latest scientific and taxonomic advances in entomological research.

Features:
- An identification key to quickly find the group of the desired insect.
- A determination guide for the main species and any species with which they can be confused.
- A clear and rigorous text to know the habitat, the distribution and the behaviour of each species.
- 140 species described.
