My book The Philosophy of Social Evolution explores this question. My answer, in short, is that relatedness is the crucial unifying concept, and W. D. Hamilton’s theory of inclusive fitness tells us how to use relatedness to make sense of social behaviour. Inclusive fitness is a familiar idea for many biologists – less so for philosophers. This book represents the culmination of the author’s lifetime work on a single fascinating group of insects, the hover wasps, Stenogastrinae. The author explores the biology of these little-known wasps at the threshold of sociality, presenting an ambitious survey of ideas about their evolution andBrand: Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
Elizabeth A. Tibbetts, Michael J. Sheehan, in Handbook of Behavioral Neuroscience, Evolution of Individual Recognition. Polistes paper wasps are a large, cosmopolitan genus of primitively eusocial insects that nest in relatively small colonies (typically less than individuals). 20 There is extensive variation in nest founding behavior within the genus. To my knowledge this book is the first of its kind to focus completely on the evolution of social systems in invertebrates a comprehensive volume that reviews the current literature and provides insightful new questions that probe the evolution of social behavior in insects and arachnids. John Melville, Northwest Science, an exceptional book.
The range of social behaviour is best understood by considering how sociality benefits the individuals involved. Because interacting with other individuals is inherently dangerous and potentially costly, both the costs and benefits of social behaviour and the costs and benefits of aggregating with others play a role in the evolution of aggregation. This Naturalists' Handbook aims to attract more people to the study of solitary wasps by describing the ecology, distribution and natural history of these insects, including all relevant research in one convenient volume. Contents include an overview of the natural history of the solitary wasp, guidelines on identification, and advice on techniques and approaches to study. Further reading, a.

James H. Hunt is of this school and his book "The Evolution of Social Wasps" is an eloquent defense of what could be called colony selection based on the "Superorganism" concept proposed by Wheeler inand involving an in depth study of the wasp family by: In this book, Itô presents data on tropical wasps which suggest that kin-selection has been overemphasized as an evolutionary explanation of sociality.

Data are presented on tropical wasps (Vespidae) which suggest that kin selection has been over-emphasized as an evolutionary explanation of sociality. The book contains chapters on: Systematics and sociality of wasps; Theories on the evolution of eusociality; Problems with the kin-selection hypothesis; Comparison of dominance relations and proportion of multi-female nests in the Polistinae; Cited by: Since the s, the eusocial paper wasps of the genusPolisteshave served as model organisms for studies of animal social s ofPolisteshave appeared on the front lines of major sociobiological research efforts, including attempts to understand the nature of animal dominance hierarchies and the importance of ecological factors and kin selection in shaping cooperative.
In this book, Itô presents data on tropical wasps which suggest that kin-selection has been overemphasized as an evolutionary explanation of sociality. He concentrates on the Vespidae (paper wasps and hornets), a group much discussed by evolutionary biologists because it exhibits all stages of social evolution: subsociality, primitive eusociality, and advanced eusociality.
In this edited collection, 17 internationally known authorities bring together the results of recent research on the natural history, ecology, behavior, morphology, and genetics of wasps as they pertain to the evolution of social behavior. The first part of the book opens with a review of the classification of the family Vespidae along with a revision of the subfamily Polistinae.
Eusociality (from Greek εὖ eu "good" and social), the highest level of organization of sociality, is defined by the following characteristics: cooperative brood care (including care of offspring from other individuals), overlapping generations within a colony of adults, and a division of labor into reproductive and non-reproductive groups.
The division of labor creates specialized. The Evolution of Social Wasps James H. Hunt Oxford University Press.
"The Evolution of Social Wasps resolves one of evolution's most intriguing problems - the origin of insect sociality. It also challenges conceptual approaches that have dominated three decades of social behaviour research.
Physiology, Behavior, Genomics of Social Insects. provides comprehensive information on the social insect groups described, including new and unique reviews on emerging model social organisms. The book's interdisciplinary approach integrates behavior, genomics, and physiology, providing readers with great insights into the present state of a rapidly expanding area of research.
Social insects and arachnids exhibit forms of complex behavior that involve cooperation in building a nest, defending against attackers or rearing offspring. This book is a comprehensive, up-to-date guide to sociality and its evolution in a wide range of taxa.
In it, leading researchers review the extent of sociality in different insect and arachnid groups, analyze the genetic, ecological and 2/5(1). About this book. Vespine Wasps of the World is written by one of the leading researchers in the field with a publication history spanning four decades. It provides an up-to-date account of the life cycles, behaviour and population and community ecology of the hornets and yellowjacket wasps of the world, including nesting, brood care, foraging and colony usurpation behaviours.
Social behavior occurs in some of the smallest animals as well as some the largest, and the transition from solitary life to sociality is an unsolved evolutionary mystery. In The Evolution of Social Wasps, James H. Hunt examines social behavior in a single lineage of insects, wasps of the family Vespidae.

In The Evolution of Social Wasps, James H. Hunt examines social behavior in a single lineage of Author: James H. Hunt. The Polybiine wasps are a much more diverse group, not all of whom are fully social, that produce a wide variety of nests that are really quite attractive.
Belanogaster junceus is a typical 'quasisocial' wasp which demonstrates a life style that is halfway between that of a solitary wasp and that of a eusocial one.
The evolution of large insect societies is a major evolutionary transition that occurred in the long-extinct ancestors of termites, ants, corbiculate bees, and vespid wasps.
Researchers have long. In The Evolution of Social Wasps, James H. Hunt examines social behavior in a single lineage of insects, wasps of the family Vespidae. He presents empirical knowledge of social wasps from two approaches, one that focuses on phylogeny and life history and one that focuses on individual ontogeny, colony development, and population dynamics.
Both solitary and social wasps are included, and the evolution of social behaviour is especially emphasised. There are special sections on form and function, life-history and habits, social organisation, seasonal behaviour, natural enemies, the impact of wasps on man (as general pests requiring control and as predators of harmful insects) and.
