About this book

Language: German

Cuckoo wasps dazzle with their magnificent metallic sheen and their red, green or purple colouration. They are among the most beautiful insects. They are also parasitic and lay their eggs in the brood cells of solitary bees and wasps. This book provides, for the first time, detailed information on the biology, distribution and habitats of around 220 Central European cuckoo wasp species in detailed species profiles and brilliant photos. It shows the elaborate relationships with their hosts and enables them to be identified down to group level with a key and colour tables.

Summary in German:
Die Goldwespen faszinieren mit ihrem prächtigen Metallglanz und ihrer roten, grünen oder violetten Färbung. Sie zählen zu den schönsten Insekten und werden nicht unpassend auch die Kolibris unter den Insekten genannt. Alle Goldwespen sind Parasiten, die ihre Eier in die Brutzellen von Wildbienen, Grabwespen und solitären Faltenwespen legen. Dieses Buch gibt in ausführlichen Steckbriefen und brillanten Fotos erstmals detailliert Auskunft über Biologie, Verbreitung und Lebensräume von rund 220 mitteleuropäischen Goldwespenarten. Es stellt die ausgeklügelten Beziehungen zu ihren Wirten dar und ermöglicht durch einen Schlüssel und durch Farbtafeln die Bestimmung bis auf Gruppenniveau.
