About this book

Covers the classification, evolution, anatomy, physiology, and behavior of the higher social insects - ants, social wasps and bees, and termites. Wilson reinterprets the knowledge of these insects through the concepts of modern biology, from biochemistry to evolutionary theory and population ecology. A classic work.
`No book on biology in the past 20 years has been as satisfying as this treatise on ants, bees, wasps, and termites (and maybe a few spiders) ... It is written with clarity and verve, but what distinguishes it particularly is its catholic mastery of all biology, from palaeontology to formal genetics, from ethology to biochemistry ... Biology is a whole science, and here it is wholly seen.' Scientific American
