Wasps are Earth's most exceptional animals. However, various impediments prevent the recognition of their true diversity and splendor. In Biodiversity & Classification of Wasps, 1st Edition, 19 authors provide an updated overview of wasps (Hymenoptera: Apocrita, excluding Formicoidea and Anthophila) including morphology, identification, and classification in the most comprehensive 21st Century coverage of the order to date.
This text was originally developed as part of the 2023 WaspID Course (https://WaspIDCourse.WordPress.com), but has been designed to function as a stand-alone resource. Planned updates for future editions include identification keys, expanded reference lists, and improved taxonomy in accordance with novel studies.
