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. It also discusses areas where new research tools will bring hope to longstanding problems.

- Provides the latest research on the genomics, behavior and physiology of social insects- Presents diverse and authoritative syntheses on the relationship between genomics, physiology, and the fascinating behavior of social insects- Takes an in-depth look of the current state of social insect research and its future path
