dc.description.abstract "The 31 genera of Vespinae and Polistinae worldwide are identified in a key to nest structure. Fifty-nine couplets and more than 80 photographs and illustrations permit both specialists and amateurs to recognize these nests in the field or museum collections. A brief overview explains the distinction between nests of these social wasps and those of other social or solitary Hymenoptera with which they may be confused. Many characteristics are illustrated or described here for the first time, with notes on both anomalous species and anomalous forms of nests of common species. Pertinent published figures and museum collections are cited to assist the professional in finding reference material"--P. [1]. en_US
