Venoms of the Hymenoptera: Biochemical, Pharmacological, and Behavioral Aspects contains papers that deals with the study of the venoms and toxins produced by insects belonging to the order of the Hymenoptera.

The book provides a considerable amount of information in the study of the venoms of the g: Costa Rica. Based on estimations of the richness of Costa Rica’s hymenopteran fauna in relation to estimates of global hymenopteran richness, it seems likely that around % of the world hymenopteran fauna has been described to date (Gaston et al., ), although other estimates have put the figure as low as % (Gauld & Gaston, ; Stork, ).

Sixty‐one families of Hymenoptera have been collected in Costa Rica, and the numbers of species per unit area is more than twice that of most of the other regions for which data are available.

The Costa Rican fauna has higher proportions of egg parasitoids and of eusocial species, and a lower proportion of primary phytophages than that of the.

The. More than half a million specimens of wild-caught Lepidoptera caterpillars have been reared for their parasitoids, identified, and DNA barcoded over a period of 34 years (and ongoing) from Area de Conservación de Guanacaste (ACG), northwestern Costa Rica.

This provides the world’s best location-based dataset for studying the taxonomy and host relationships of caterpillar parasitoids. To analyze mortality due to Hymenoptera stings in Costa Rica during – Methods.

Records of deaths due to Hymenoptera stings in – were retrieved from Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Censos (National Statistics and Census Institute).

Mor. Parasitic Hymenoptera, the major group of insects having the parasitoid life style, are extremely species rich and of wide significance in terrestrial ecosystems. Although the nature of their role with respect to species richness and stability in their host communities is unclear, the evidence that parasitoids can have a profound impact on host populations is incontestable.

The Museum houses one of the largest collections of Hymenoptera in the world, with over three million pinned specimens. The collection is rich in type specimens and includes historical material from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, such as that collected by Charles Darwin and Henry Walter.

Introduction. Nineteen species of oaks are listed for Costa Rica (Govaerts and Frodin ), which appear to support quite a high species richness of oak gallwasps (Hymenoptera, Cynipidae, Cynipini).There are probably more than 30 species present in the country (Pujade-Villar and Hanson ), but only three species, Odontocynips hansoni Pujade-Villar, Andricus costaricensis Pujade.

Hymenoptera is a large order of insects, comprising the sawflies, wasps, bees, andliving species of Hymenoptera have been described, in addition to over 2, extinct ones.

Many of the species are g: Costa Rica. When corrected for area, the species richness of ‘Pimplinae’ and Pimplini in Costa Rica as a whole is greater than that for virtually any other region recorded to date.

The local richness of both groups appears to be a function of their regional richness. Many of the species found in Costa Rica apparently have large geographic ranges.Required Cookies & Technologies.
