The Braconid and Ichneumonid Parasitoid Wasps: Biology, Systematics, Evolution and Ecology

The Ichneumonoidea is an enormous and significant superfamily of parasitic wasps, with a few 60,000 defined species and envisioned numbers some distance greater, specially for small-bodied tropical taxa. The superfamily includes cosmopolitan households - Braconidae and Ichneumonoidea - that experience mostly attracted separate teams of researchers, and this, to a substantial volume, has intended that knowing in their adaptive positive aspects has usually been thought of in isolation.
