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
Cite: 1018556 with citation markup [cite:1018556]
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.

available online

The key is not available online.
A review of it by Richard Zack, that went online in 1999, may be found in Annals of the Entomology Society of America by going to:

Dr. Buck's link works
mine would have too if I was smart enough to include the final "]" in [/url]

Thank you.
I don't know why I didn't try the link Dr. Buck provided. I just saw the "your link does not work."

no problem at all
I'm just glad the paper's online

Yes,it's a huge contribution.

Publication has duplicate pages!
Be wary of page 162. The next page is 146. Pages 147 - 161 need to be deleted. Then the document seems correct with those duplicate pages removed.

Very confusing, just check it out.
