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. Jul 15,  · “The Superorganism,” with Bert Hölldobler, a new book with information on termites, wasps, bees and ants, will be published in November. a .

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: The topics discussed include reproductive competition during colony establishment, evolution of queen number and queen control, polyethism, nutrition, genetics, evolution of nest architecture, the nest as a locus of social life, and the function of exocrine glands. The final chapter describes the evolution of social behaviour in sphecid wasps.

A systematic, bottom-up approach to the study of HET could reveal what is possible, not only what seems intuitively probable.

Charles Darwin considered the evolution of eusociality a major problem for his theory of natural selection. In The Origin of Species, he described the existence of sterile worker castes in the social insects as "the one special difficulty, which at first appeared to me insuperable and actually fatal to my whole theory".
