Molecular phylogenetics of Braconidae (Hym.:Ichneumonoidea) based on multiple nuclear genes, and implications for classification
By Sharonowsky B.J., Ashley P.G., Dowling P.G., Sharkey M.J.
Systematic Entomology 36: 549-572, 2011

Manual of the New World Genera of the Family Braconidae (Hymenoptera)
By Wharton, R.A., P.M. Marsh, M.J. Sharkey (Eds)
International Society of Hymenopterists, 1997
Although some systematics info is dated (Sharonowski et al. (1) is the most recent phylogenetic update of the group as of this writing), contains comprehensive biological and taxonomic information, keys, and information on the biodiversity of the various groups, as well as habitus and wing diagrams, and SEM photographs of various morphological features helpful for identification. Very high quality work.
