520    This summary of the results of chromosomal analysis of 
       various groups of parasitic wasps will be essential 
       reading for those working in the field. It is the second 
       edition of a monograph that was first published in Russian,
       and has been substantially updated with new data, 
       conclusions and references. The goal of this ground-
       breaking work is to document the author's study of the 
       karyotype structure and chromosomal evolution of parasitic
       Hymenoptera. It also interprets the results obtained, from
       both routine and differential chromosome staining, for 
       systematic and phylogenetic purposes. Despite the huge 
       importance of parasitic wasps, many problems of their 
       taxonomy remain insufficiently studied. This is a 
       situation that needs rectifying, as Hymenoptera are one of
       the largest and most taxonomically complicated groups of 
       insects and they play a very important role in food chains
       as parasitoids of the overwhelming majority of insects and
       other arthropods. Parasitic wasps attack many pests of 
       agriculture and forestry as well as certain beneficial 
       insects. In addition, some secondarily phytophagous 
       Hymenoptera damage certain cultivated plants. The renowned
       entomologist and author of this volume, Vladimir Gokhman, 
       has himself developed a particular technique for obtaining
       chromosomal preparations from adult parasitic wasps. This 
       allowed the inclusion of a wide range of those insects 
       into the study. The karyotypic features of the majority of
       superfamilies and families as well as many lower taxa of 
       parasitic Hymenoptera are listed, while the plesiomorphic 
       and apomorphic character states of chromosome sets of 
       parasitic wasps are revealed. The structural features of 
       karyotypes used for identifying and discriminating sibling
       species and similar forms are shown, as are the data on 
       chromosome sets of about 400 species of parasitic 
       Hymenoptera (including more than 200 micrographs). Also 
       included is a comprehensive phylogenetic and taxonomic 
       analysis of karyotypic information. This book is unique 
       because it demonstrates a range of karyotypic data for an 
       insect group that seemed unattainable in this respect not 
       so long ago. Rich in new facts, techniques and ideas, it 
       will be of use to all those interested in karyology and
